The protagonist of the acclaimed series suffered a heart attack, but the series will not take a break.
“Better Call Saul” has suffered several hits in recent months. The production of the sixth season of the drama series was not only affected by the pandemic and suffered delays like many others, but also recently had to stop after its protagonist met an accident on the film set.
While Bob Odenkirk continues his recovery from that heart attack, the acclaimed “Breaking Bad” spin-off has decided to move forward with its plan despite the absence of its main star, which will pose several challenges.
In a recent interaction with Den of Geek, “Better Call Saul” executive producer Thomas Schnauz revealed that filming continues at a slow but steady pace. This does not mean that Odenkirk has been relieved of his role, but that since the star will need some time to return to the set, the team has reformulated its shooting plan to avoid further delays.
“Production is moving forward, steadily but slowly. Right now we are shooting scenes that don’t involve Bob. I just finished editing the director’s cut for season six episode seven, and have addressed some notes in my script for eleven. I am still waiting to know the dates of when I will direct that one”, said Schnauz.
The executive producer of “Better Call Saul” also addressed the rumor that the sixth season of the series will be divided into two parts, as its predecessor “Breaking Bad.”
Although previously showrunner Peter Gould expressed hope that it will air as a unit, now there is too much uncertainty about what happened with Odenkirk and the protocols and consequences of the current pandemic.
When Will The Last Season Of “Better Call Saul” Arrive?
The sixth and final season of “Better Call Saul,” whose filming began in March, had already been delayed due to the coronavirus. However, while the priority now revolves around its central figure’s health and optimal recovery, the premiere scheduled for early 2022 may be subject to further changes.
The Most Recognized Role Of Jonathan Banks
Another star that made a comeback throughout the show was Jonathan Banks. The actor has worked in the industry since the 1970s, and his face can be seen in dozens of productions, whether on the small screen or in movies. Despite this, his popularity and worldwide recognition skyrocketed when he joined “Breaking Bad” and played the character in charge of solving everything.
The role of Mike not only brought him enormous popularity, but it was also the opportunity to earn well-deserved recognition for his work. Since he began playing the character in 2008, Banks has been nominated five times for an Emmy. Her last time in the role will be next year, when the final season of “Better Call Saul” premieres, and fans couldn’t be more eager to see her.
