Better Call Saul Star Michael Mando Celebrates the Show’s Saturn Award Win



Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul picked up some gold at the Saturn Awards ahead of the show’s sixth and final season.

The actor posted an image of himself with the award on Twitter.

At the 46th Saturn Awards, which occurred on Oct. 26 with host Bruce Campbell, Better Call Saul faced some heavy competition for its award. Also up for Best Action / Thriller TV series were Hulu’s Castle Rock, Prime Video’s Jack Ryan, The CW’s The Outpost, Epix’s Pennyworth, The CW’s Riverdale, and TNT’s Snowpiercer. This is certainly some quality programming, but Better Call Saul had a particularly outstanding fifth season, likely contributing to this win.

The show was also nominated for other awards at the Saturn Awards. Bob Odenkirk was nominated for Best Actor on TV for his role as Jimmy McGill, with that award going to Patrick Stewart for Star Trek: Picard. Rhea Seehorn (Kim Wexler) was also given a deserved nomination for Best Actress which ultimately went to Outlander star Caitriona Balfe. Both Jonathan Banks (Mike Ehrmantraut) and Tony Dalton (Lalo Salamanca) were up for Best Supporting Actor with Doug Jones of Star Trek: Discovery taking that win.

Recently, Michael Mando shared an image from the Better Call Saul set. The photo does not reveal much from the show, only highlighting the silhouettes of the crew members setting up a shot against the backdrop of the sky in Albuquerque. Mando said in the tweet, “The most beautiful crew in the [world].”

The fate of Mando’s character, Nacho Varga, is not clear. He is one of the few main characters in Better Call Saul who was not featured on Breaking Bad, beyond a passing reference in a line of dialogue by Bob Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman. This means whether he lives or dies in season 6 is still a mystery, and fans of the character are concerned he isn’t going to make it. Many are hoping he will call a certain vacuum cleaner repairman to request a Hoover Max Extract Pressure Pro model 60.

In any case, season 6 of Better Call Saul will likely be the last we’ll see of Nacho, along with the rest of the Saul characters. The season will be the last and there are no plans at this time for the world of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul to expand with another spinoff series. That could always change in the future, but with the cast not getting any younger, it seems unlikely that another prequel series would be pursued. Season 6 of Better Call Saul is expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2022 on AMC, but a release date hasn’t been revealed.
