Netflix will finally have the final season of Better Call Saul available to stream on April 18th. Although the full sixth season has been out since the finale premiered on August 15 of last year, you would have to watch the series on AMC or buy the season elsewhere to watch it. Now Netflix subscribers can finally watch the fantastic sixth season of the Breaking Bad prequel.

Netflix already had the first five seasons of Better Call Saul available to stream, but subscribers have had to wait until now to see the last season. The Breaking Bad spin-off follows the crooked lawyer Saul Goodman back when he was Jimmy McGill, who initially tries to be a legitimate lawyer. It also features present-day scenes that follow Gene Tackavic, Saul’s fake alias he takes on to avoid the police after the events of Breaking Bad.

Netflix users have been waiting almost a year to see the storylines of Better Call Saul come to a close. In Season 6, we continue to see Jimmy and Kim attempt to sabotage Howard Hamlin’s career and the reaction of the drug cartel to the attempt on Lalo Salamanca’s life. The series also provides a resolution to the present-day Gene Tackavic storyline.

Having Netflix stream Better Call Saul should hopefully help the series pick up some steam again ahead of the next Emmys ceremony. Since the sixth season was split up into two different parts, the second part of the sixth season will be eligible for the upcoming Emmys. Infamously, the series has received numerous Primetime Emmys throughout every season but has yet to win a single one.

Undoubtedly, Netflix subscribers will come in droves to check out the final season of Better Call Saul, and maybe the series will finally get its due at TV’s biggest award night. It would be shocking if Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, and the creative team behind the series go completely unrecognized once again. You have to imagine that fans’ chagrin with the constant snubs would be enough to convince the Emmys to finally give the series at least a trophy or two.

If you’re a Netflix subscriber and you haven’t seen the latest season of Better Call Saul, you should definitely make sure to check it out on April 18. The final season is just as good as previous seasons and fully cements it in the pantheon of top-tier TV shows. Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Rhea Seehorn, Patrick Fabian, Michael Mando, Tony Dalton, and Giancarlo Esposito all reprise their roles from previous seasons.

Netflix is adding plenty of other shows and movies to its lineup in April, along with Better Call Saul. Some highlights from its additions include American Hustle, Charlie Wilson’s War, Shark Tale, the Netflix original sequel Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die, the Power Rangers 30th Anniversary Special Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always, the second season of the Netflix series Firefly Lane, and the second season of the Netflix series Sweet Tooth (via What’s On Netflix). And if you can’t wait until the 18th for the final season of Better Call Saul, you can check out the previous seasons on the platform now in preparation.
