The legend of Slippin’ Jimmy will continue, now that AMC has renewed Better Call Saul for Season 5. The pickup — which was first announced during AMC’s portion of the Television Critics Assocation summer press tour on Saturday — comes more than a week out from the Breaking Bad prequel’s Season 4 premiere (on Monday, Aug. 6, at 9/8c).
In addition, AMC confirmed a Season 5 renewal for Walking Dead spinoff Fear the Walking Dead, and a Season 2 renewal for organized crime thriller McMafia.
Better Call Saul‘s soon-to-launch fourth season picks up in a post-Chuck McGill world, following the Michael McKean character’s on-screen suicide in the Season 3 finale. Jimmy is attempting to stay gainfully employed as he rides out his year-long probation from practicing law, which brings the narrative that much closer to his transformation into Bad alter ego Saul Goodman. AMC previously released a Season 4 trailer, which you can watch here.
TVLine’s Cable Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect Better Call Saul‘s fifth season. Are you excited to see the BB prequel live on for at least another year?
