To Breaking Bad fans, there’s only one guy to call when the law catches up with you: Jimmy McGill. Saul Goodman wasn’t always a sleazy lech using the law as his plaything, assisting the criminals of Albuquerque to get away with their crimes. Better Call Saul is his gritty origin story, from well-intentioned anti-hero to the full-blown baddie we know and love.
With season five on the horizon, Gustavo Fring is officially in the picture, and his “Super Lab” is almost done. All it needs now is a super chemist. Plus, the DEA is breathing down the neck of the Juarez Cartel, and all the power players will slowly reveal themselves, including an especially nasty Tio with an unmistakable bell.
Here’s everything you need to watch Better Call Saul season 5.

Better Call Saul Reviews
What the critics are saying:
- “In order to land some sorrowful emotional beats, these new episodes have to shed some of Better Call Saul’s defining lightheartedness. And make no mistake: The way season four kicks into gear with such confidence and precision has all the markings of Breaking Bad’s clockwork plotting.” –Erik Adams, AV Club
- “Through three episodes provided for review, absolutely. Better Call Saul isn’t to ascend to Breaking Bad’s place in pop-culture history, but as a guilty pleasure for those who miss Heisenberg and the gang, it succeeds on just about every level. Not only does it return to the desert surroundings we know and love, but it also revels in the same moral depravity and dark humor we’ve come to expect from show creator Vince Gilligan.” Ken Miller, Las Vegas Weekly
