Breaking Bad’s fifth season aired on AMC in 2015, and season 6 isn’t scheduled to premiere until 2022. Some of you may already be aware of season 5, but because the Netflix release for it is linked to the release date of season 6, it is only accessible in certain countries. The following release schedule for seasons 5 and 6 on Netflix around the world has been revealed.
It’s been a fantastic few years as a Breaking Bad fan, culminating with Better Call Saul, which told the backstory of wise-talking Saul Goodman. In addition, in late 2019 we were given El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, which concluded Jessie Pinkman’s tale.
Better Call Saul Season 5 was aired on AMC from February 23rd, 2020 to April 20th, 2020 and featured ten episodes. It concluded on April 20th, 2020.
Season 6 of Better Call Saul has been confirmed, but it is now expected to start filming in 2022 (the show’s longest wait ever). Filming has continued into September 2021 and is anticipated to resume in 2022 (for the full story, see below)
The show’s sixth season will be its final, with 13 episodes concluding Jimmy McGill’s complete transition into Saul Goodman.
When will Better Call Saul season 5 be on Netflix in the US and Canada?
Those in Canada, the United States, South Africa, and Spain will have the longest to wait for Better Call Saul season 5.
As the show airs first in the US, it takes a while for the license to become available to Netflix in these regions and they don’t get the weekly treatment that others do.
Season 4, for example, was added to Netflix on February 9th, 2020 just weeks before S5 was due to air. However, season 3 was added to Netflix in March 2018 before the August air date.
In the past years, we’ve always seen new seasons added shortly before the next is set to air and that’s almost certain to happen too and given the huge gap between seasons 5 and 6, that means a long Netflix wait.
Season 6 is still scheduled to air in 2022 after major delays due to COVID-19 and Bob Odenkirk’s medical troubles in late Summer 2021.
Better Call Saul Season 5 Netflix International Release Schedule

When will season 6 of Better Call Saul be on Netflix?
It’s a little too early to be giving accurate predictions for when season 6 will hit but here’s a broad overview.
In international regions, you’ll see next day releases again and the US and Canada will likely get the season much sooner given there won’t be a season 7. More to come on this as and when we learn more.
