When will ‘Better Call Saul’ Season 5 be on Netflix?
Better Call Saul season 5 is all out on AMC, but when exactly will it be out on Netflix? Season 6 was delayed into 2021 for AMC, but there were no official announcements for the release of season 5 on Netflix. Many regions already have the complete fifth season streaming, but now there are details for the remaining areas.
Better Call Saul
It’s been a great few years to be a Breaking Bad fan, headlined with Better Call Saul telling us the origin story of the wise-talking Saul Goodman. Last year, the makers blessed us with El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie that brings life to Jessie Pinkman’s level. The first episode of season 5 was aired on AMC on February 23, 2020. The season has ten episodes, with the last one aired by AMC on April 20, 2020. Network officially confirmed season 6 with an expected release in 2021. It is just “expected,” there is no telling how the tables turn with the COVID-19 pandemic still very much evident.
When will the show be on Netflix internationally?
US, Canada, South Africa, and Spain fans will all have to wait for Season 5. As the show airs first in the US, it takes a while for the license to become available to Netflix in these regions, and they don’t get the weekly treatment that others do. Season 4, for example, was added to Netflix on February 9, 2020, just weeks before S5 was due to air. However, season 3 was added to Netflix in March 2018 before the August air date. We’re still expecting season 5 of Better Call Saul to be on Netflix US in early 2021. If season 6 does arrive much later in the year, we could see its Netflix release delayed to build anticipation for the sixth and final season. We’re yet to have that confirmed, however.
As per previous seasons such as season 3 and 4 of Better Call Saul, new episodes dropped weekly on Netflix after the episodes aired on AMC in the United States. This weekly release schedule applies to Netflix in regions such as the United Kingdom, mainland Europe, Poland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Switzerland, and Turkey. It also applies to the release schedule for Latin America and Asian regions. Weekly episodes of Better Call Saul S5 does not apply to South Africa, Canada, Iceland, or Spain. New episodes began dropping on Netflix from February 24 onwards.
Better Call Saul s5 will launch weekly from 24 Feb which is good because it's been 2 months since El Camino and we need more from the Gilligan Cinematic Universe. pic.twitter.com/seadUuav04
