The spin-off prequel will say good-bye in 2021.
January 16, 2020
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.

Does it mean 'breaking bad' might be coming back soon?

ermmm... Saul became Saul in season 4 near the end.... "S'all good, man." Season 4 also showed the introduction of Lemuel -- someone wasn't paying attention :) I'd expect season 5 to have the strip mall office in it and possibly the introduction to Walt and Jesse. Then season 6 to cover after or while the preverbal S is hitting the fan for Walt/Jesse.

@Jim, Yes I know the Cinnabon story arc is after the events of "Breaking Bad". But the producers of "Better Call Saul" decided to put that story arc into the prequel show with a little vignette at the beginning of each season. It wasn't an accident.
They clearly have plans of showing how the character of Saul ultimately winds up. Unlike many shows, Vince Gilligan likes to tell the whole character arc of his main characters in the "Breaking Bad" universe. When "Better Call Saul" shows its last episode I expect there will be nothing left to say about Saul.

It had to end soon. I think it would be cool if it ended by leading directly into his first appearance in Breaking Bad.
@Steve, Saul managing a Cinnabon isn't directly related to his story in Better Call Saul. That happens after Breaking Bad.

This show has followed it's own set timeline. If they had him become saul too early on the show would be over now..great show, and most enjoy tje drama.

Good, now I can binge the first 5 seasons knowing the last one is on it's way

Good. While I like this show, it sure takes it time moving the story along. You got the feeling that since they originally didn't know how many seasons it would run, they didn't want to run up against the start of "Beaking Bad" prematurely.
We have yet to see how Saul really becomes Saul and how it concludes the story arc of Saul managing a Cinnabon in Omaha.
