The filming and production of the highly-awaited crime drama, 'Better Call Saul,' has finally started. Know the full story here.
Good news for 'Breaking Bad' fans as the highly-rated prequel of the crime thriller, 'Better Call Saul' is returning for its sixth and final season now. While the renewal was confirmed a long time back to premiere in early 2022, the shooting and production dates weren't revealed. Well, everything is set now as the production for yet another Vince Gilligan show has officially embarked from Monday.
The 'Better Call Saul' fanbase couldn't be more excited with this amazing news as the fifth season has left them impatient with a dramatic yet attention-grabbing storyline involving top characters of Salamangas, Gus Fring, and the show's lead, Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk.

Many of the 'Breaking Bad' fans didn't expect much of the prequel series when it actually began, but once the show started airing on Netflix, people actually started to grow fond of it, thanks to an amazing plot and character development.
The kudos to this great news regarding the official return and production of Better Call Saul goes to co-creator cum co-showrunner Peter Gould. It was the producer who took marketing matters into his own hands by tweeting a picture on his Twitter from the set of the show. The pictures clearly indicated how the filming officially began on March 10, 2021.

The Netflix show was deeply struck through the COVID-19 pandemic last year, which might have been a big reason for its delay. Despite all that, the fans can only be glad that the showrunners are now positive and moving forward to create another exciting finale in the Breaking Bad universe, this time in Better Call Saul.
Peter Gould's sneak-peek in his Twitter profile further revealed how the premiere episode would have Michael Morris on the directing chair. Surprisingly, he isn't a new name in the BGS universe, as the renowned director has a history in the crime drama recording a total of three episodes in the past. Likewise, Marshall Adams would be the one responsible for the role of a cinematographer. He took on the same role in the Breaking Bad movie, 'El Camino,' which was released on the streaming service - Netflix in 2019.
