AMC announced today that Better Call Saul has been picked up for a sixth and final season. The good news comes the month ahead of the drama's Season 5 premiere, which kicks off with a two-night event on February 23 and 24.

The cable network has ordered 13 episodes for the show's final run, which will be its longest to-date. The advanced notice will give showrunners plenty of time to craft a fitting end to complete the story they set out to tell with the Breaking Bad prequel that focuses on the early days of Saul Goodman, or as he was previously known, Jimmy McGill.

The final season of Better Call Saul is expected to air in late 2021 or early 2022.
