Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk carries “mixed feelings” about the upcoming sixth and the final season.
Saul, who we originally met on the parent show Breaking Bad, will be returning early next year for the sixth and final season, with production having recently resumed after the pandemic got in the way.

Odenkirk said he is always pulling for the shady lawyer and hopes he succeeds – even if he isn’t confident he will – but he is equally excited to play new roles.
The actor said,
I have very mixed feelings. I don’t think you can watch the show, and I can’t play this guy, without growing to want him to succeed, and liking him, and wanting to be a better version of himself, is really what I want. I’m not sure that’s where he’ll end up, though.
I do like him. I think he’s got some good skills. He just doesn’t know where to put them. But also, I’ll be happy to move onto other characters, because I have played him a long time.
The latest film Nobody, in which Odenkirk plays an ordinary, mild-mannered parent, is his most recent endeavor. When thieves enter his house, though, something within him is stirred, and his vicious streak is unleashed.
