The official teaser for the final episodes of Better Call Saul has arrived, closing the loop on a teased flash-forward. The series, which began airing on AMC in 2015, is a spinoff of the long-running series Breaking Bad, which followed New Mexico chemistry teacher Walter White as he became a meth kingpin upon learning he had a fatal disease. Better Call Saul follows the events leading up to the point where Bob Odenkirk's character Saul Goodman joined the series in Breaking Bad season 2, becoming a regular character who would go on to appear in 43 total episodes. Specifically, it follows him during his time before he took on the Saul Goodman persona, when he was just the increasingly crooked attorney Jimmy McGill.SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY
Better Call Saul has now actually run for longer than Breaking Bad itself and is currently airing season 6. However, this season marks the last outing for the character as the timeline begins to concretely converge with that of the original series. Season 6 part 2, which premieres on Monday, July 11 with the episode "Point and Shoot," will be the final set of six episodes leading up to the series finale.

Today, AMC released their official trailer for Better Call Saul season 6 part 2. While nostalgic music reminds viewers to "try to remember the good times," the promo cycles through a variety of the show's most famous locations - including the restaurant Los Pollos Hermanos - empty of all people and rendered in black and white. The scene briefly explodes into color as Saul enters the scene, seemingly preparing for a big fight to the finish. Check out the video below:
This teaser promises that the final set of episodes will follow through on the moment teased in season 6 episode 1. Better Call Saul is known for opening with black-and-white flash-forwards, usually following Jimmy under the alias Gene Takovic in the events following Breaking Bad. However, this flash-forward had a different tone and tenor, leading fans to believe that it might be teasing the events of the final episode on the current timeline instead.
Whatever the case, it is certain that fans are going to get answers soon. This season of Better Call Saul is promising to heat up and challenge fans’ expectations, combining the season’s grim tone with fan service cameos including the return of Walter White and his partner Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). Hopefully, the answers are satisfying as this chapter in the Breaking Bad universe - and perhaps the franchise as a whole - draws to a close.
