As the Breaking Bad prequel television series, Better Call Saul starring Bob Odenkirk will be moving forward with the fifth season we’ve learned some new production dates for the AMC show. Filming on the fifth season of Better Call Saul is expected to start on April 10th in Albuquerque, New Mexico and will finish sometime in August.

Introducing Jimmy McGill. You may know him better as Saul Goodman, Walter White’s slippery, resourceful lawyer in Breaking Bad. When first we meet him it is a few years before he meets Walter White. He is a struggling lawyer in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He mostly defends small-time crooks and represents people in civil liability claims. His brother, Charles “Chuck” McGill, is a senior partner at a prestigious Albuquerque law firm but hasn’t left his house for several months due to a strange affliction. Jimmy is supporting him by bringing him groceries and the like. Jimmy has a dark, pre-lawyer past, being a small-time fraudster in Chicago before moving to Albuquerque to start over and work with at his brother’s firm. We also meet Mike Ehrmantraut, ex-cop now working as a toll booth attendant at the courthouse parking lot. We see how Jimmy and Mike’s stories converge and how Jimmy slowly becomes the Saul Goodman we know from Breaking Bad.

Bob Odenkirk’s upcoming film projects include Craig Brewer’s Dolemite Is My Name for Netflix and an action film titled Nobody written by John Wick creator Derek Kolstad. That latter film has yet to begin production.

An air date for Better Call Saul season five has yet to be announced by AMC.
