Better Call Saul ended its third season on a cliffhanger with no renewal in sight. However, despite the fact that AMC has yet to decree a fourth season, EP Gennifer Hutchison assures TVLine there are no plans, at least creatively, for the series to end here:
We didn’t talk about [the Season 3 finale serving as a potential series finale]. We’re always hopeful. We always hope to be able to tell the story, and hope that AMC will kindly allow us to continue.
As for how long the AMC TV series can last – is there a five season plan mapped out ala Breaking Bad, or could it even go beyond the mothership series – Hutchinson said:
That’s definitely a possibility. Having those flash-forwards allows us the option to maybe delve a little deeper into the future. But there’s no explicit plan. Obviously, we talk about it, but we’re still kind of figuring out exactly, rhythmically, what this journey looks like. And even when we say, “Oh, we want to get to this point,” sometimes you get there much faster or much slower than you initially expect to.
Will Better Call Saul get within touching distance or perhaps match or even surpass Breaking Bad’s timeline/run? Stay tuned…
