Breaking Bad Season 6 Release Date

There is no Breaking Bad Season 6 release date, as the creators have no plans for a new season. The AMC crime drama ended with Season 5, comprising a total of 16 episodes, which ran from 2 September 2012 to 29 September 2013.

The finale Season of Breaking Bad concluded the gripping tale of a chemistry teacher, Walter White, and his student, Jesse Pinkman, who turned into meth cooks and dealers. 

Will There Be a Season 6 of Breaking Bad?

There is not going to be a Season 6 of Breaking Bad, as the show concluded with Season 5, which ran from 2012 to 2013. The finale episode did not leave any loose ends but brought a fitting conclusion to the entire story. Therefore, any talk of a Breaking Bad Season 6 is misguided. However, it is also understandable. Fans really loved the show and, as such, yearned for it to be continued, but this is not going to be the case, unfortunately.

When is Season 6 Breaking Bad Release Date?

There is no release date for Breaking Bad Season 6 as there has not been any confirmation by the creators about a new season. Therefore, any talk of a Breaking Bad Season 6 is nothing but a false rumor. Back in 2015, which was a good two years after the 5th and final Season had aired, a website claimed that the creator of Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan, was planning to come back with Season 6.

The website was easily picked up by Google’s complex algorithm and placed at the top of search inquiries. Therefore, many started speculating that Season 6 of Breaking Bad had been confirmed. This was, however, debunked by reputable media organizations who pointed out that the website that carried the news was obviously fake.

How Many Seasons of Breaking Bad Are There?

There are five seasons of Breaking Bad, with a total of 62 episodes. The first Season of Breaking Bad had just 7 episodes, which originally aired from the 20th of January 2008 to the 9th of March 2008. It introduced the premises of the story, an underpaid chemistry teacher who turns to the drug business in order to provide for the family after a terminal disease diagnosis.

Seasons two (8th March 2009 to 31st May 2009), three (21st March 2010 to 13th June 2010) and four (17th July 2011 to 9th October 2011) of Breaking Bad had 13 episodes each. The 5th and final season of Breaking Bad had 16 episodes and was broken down into two parts. Season 5 Part II, comprising 8 episodes, aired from the 15th of July 2012 to the 2nd of September 2012. Season 5 Part II also had 8 episodes, the first of which originally aired on 11th August 2011, with the last airing on the 29th of September 2013.

Is Better Call Saul Season 6 of Breaking Bad?

Better Call Saul is the prequel of Breaking Bad and not the Season 6. It means that the events in Better Call Saul take place before what we see in Breaking Bad. Better Call Saul focuses on Saul Goodman, a flamboyant, criminally-minded lawyer that Walter and Jesse initially hired in Season 2 of Breaking Bad to help their partners escape their issues with the law.

Saul turns out to be much more than a legal mind and connects the two men to a drug dealer, Gus, and an enforcer named Mike, who can help them further their trade. The back story of Saul Goodman is then explored in Better Call Saul.

He was a low-level conman who later decided to clean up his act and study to become a lawyer. He achieves his dreams, but his brother, as well as others, continue to sabotage him in subtle ways. He, therefore, strikes out on his own and begins to associate with criminal elements.

It is often hard for a succeeding show to leave up to its predecessor, but Better Call Saul did exactly that. In fact, some believe that the show, which had a total of 6 seasons and 63 episodes, was even better than Breaking Bad.

Is there a Breaking Bad Season 6 Cast?

As we have already established above, there is not going to be a Season 6 of Breaking Bad. As such, there is no cast for Season 6 of Breaking Bad. However, the major cast members of Breaking Bad for Seasons 1 to 5 included Bryan Cranston (Walter White), Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman), Anna Gunn (Skylar White), Dean Norris (Hank Schrader), Betsy Brandt (Marie Schrader), RJ Mitte (Walter White Jr.), and Giancarlo Esposito (Gustavo “Gus” Fring), etc.

Meanwhile, if they were to have been a Breaking Bad Season 6, chances are high that Bryan Cranston, who portrayed Walter White, would not return. Walter White was famously shot to death in a confrontation with rivals in the drug business named Todd and Jack in the finale episode of Breaking Bad season 5.

How Many Breaking Bad Season 6 Episodes Would There Be?

There won’t be any episodes of Breaking Bad Season 6 as there is not going to be a season 6 of the series. Devoted fans of the crime drama will have to content themselves with watching reruns of previous episodes. They also have other options, though. Breaking Bad was so successful that it birthed a media franchise.

One of the products of that franchise is Better Call Saul. A good number of the characters from Breaking Bad also make an appearance in Better Call Saul; therefore, fans of the series can watch this.

Also, there is a feature-length film titled El Camino: The Breaking Bad Movie. It was released on the 11th of October 2019. It is a sequel to Breaking Bad and, as such, carries on from where the series left off. Walter White made sure that his protégé, Jesse Pinkman, survived the whole shootout, and as such, the young man forms the major focus of the movie.

Jesse knows that continuing the drug trade is no longer an option and, as such, plans how to get a fresh start. He seeks out someone who can help him do this, all the while dealing with the authorities breathing down his neck. El Camino did not perform too shabbily at the box office, as it returned $40 million on a budget of $11 million.

Will Breaking Bad Season 6 Be on Netflix?

Breaking Bad Season 6 won’t be on Netflix as there is not going to be a Season 6. However, if the reverse were to be the case, then Breaking Bad Season 6 would have been on Netflix. The streaming platform has the rights to distribute all seasons of the show, and they began streaming some of the earlier seasons while the series was concluding on AMC.

AMC has even admitted that Netflix streaming the earlier seasons helped make the series even more popular. Meanwhile, in September 2023, Aaron Paul, the actor who played Jesse Pinkman, revealed that he was not earning a dime from the streaming of the show on Netflix and that this was improper.
