How many episodes are in season 5 of Better Call Saul?

Episodes will then be released weekly on Mondays, so sadly this is not a series to binge watch.

The fifth series will follow the same pattern as the other series and will be made up of 10 episodes, with the last episode airing on April 20.

All 10 episodes have been given titles and have been directed by Bronwen Hughes, Gordon Smith, Vince Gilligan and Thomas Schnauz.

The first episode is called Magic Man and the titles of the other episodes are as follows:

Episode 2 – 50% Off

Episode 3- The Guy For This

Episode 4- Namaste

Episode 5 – Dedicado a Max

Episode 6- Wexler v. Goodman

Episode 7 – JMM

Episode 8 – Bagman

Episode 9 – Bad Choice Road

Episode 10 – Something Unforgivable

Series co-creator Peter Gould said Saul Goodman was once known as James Morgan or Jimmy McGill before he coined his professional alias.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about what to expect in the new series he said: “It seems like Jimmy’s first move is to try to leverage all the contacts he has in the world of selling drop phones.

“But don’t forget, he also knows the vet (Caldera, played by Joe DeRosa), and the vet is sort of Craig’s List for the underworld in Albuquerque. So he can get quite far.

“The question is: how does he establish a reputation as not just a criminal lawyer but a criminal lawyer? And what does that mean to him at this point?

“Because situations may require him to do things and turn a blind eye to things that Jimmy McGill would not be able to stomach.”
