"The response to this final season of Better Call Saul, from viewers, critics, long-time fans and new arrivals to the series - on all platforms - has been everything we had hoped for," said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks. "The series looks like nothing else on television, which is a tribute to the creative genius and excellence of Vince, Peter, Bob, Rhea, Giancarlo, Patrick, Jonathan, Michael, Tony, our partners at Sony and everyone else associated with this extraordinary effort. Better Call Saul began as a spin-off of one of the most beloved television series of all time and, over six unforgettable seasons, has become a true television landmark in its own right. With six episodes left, we look forward to the return of the series on July 11 and to a summer of Saul."
