Better Call Saul season 5 is set to premiere on Sunday, February 23, at 10 PM EST (7 PM PST). The popular Breaking Bad spin-off will consist of 10 45-minute episodes as Jimmy McGill makes a life-changing decision — to practice law under the name of Saul Goodman. As this content is geo-blocked and only available in the US, you’ll need to connect to a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to stream it outside the US.
We’re only recommending official sources for watching Better Call Saul season 5 online. That’s because unlicensed streams are far too unreliable and may lead you to miss out on the season 5 premiere. For starters, they’re typically low resolution with excessive amounts of lag. Furthermore, an unauthorized stream may, without warning, be taken offline for violating copyright. You can avoid missing out by using official sources to watch Better Call Saul.
It’s worth knowing that Better Call Saul season 5 is only available on region-locked platforms. To continue watching abroad via your regular streaming services from home, you’ll need to use a VPN.
How to watch Better Call Saul season 5 online with a VPN
By connecting to a server in the US, you can obtain a US IP address. This then makes it appear as if you’re browsing from that location. As such, you can unblock geo-restricted content such as Better Call Saul season 5 from anywhere in the world.
Here’s how to watch Better Call Saul season 5 online abroad (outside of the US):
- First, sign up with a VPN service. We recommend ExpressVPN. However, NordVPN and CyberGhost are affordable alternatives with strong unblocking ability.
- Next, download and install the appropriate VPN app for your device. All of the VPNs recommended above also offer browser extensions for Chrome and Firefox.
- Open the VPN app and connect to a server in the US. You’ll then have a US IP address for unblocking AMC and watching Better Call Saul season 5 online abroad.
- Go to AMC and sign in with your cable TV provider. Alternatively, you can watch AMC cable-free via a streaming service that includes AMC.
- Select the AMC live stream or an on-demand episode. All content should now be unblocked. If it’s still locked, we recommend you clear your browser’s cache and cookies. Alternatively, try connecting to another US server.
New episodes of Better Call Saul will air live on AMC. It’s a good idea to test your VPN with AMC in advance of the season 5 premiere. If you encounter any issues, you then have time to contact your VPN’s customer support for further assistance.

Where else can I watch Better Call Saul season 5?
While Better Call Saul season 5 will premiere on its original network of AMC, there are a couple of other ways in which you’ll be able to stream season 5, albeit at a later date. Notably, Better Call Saul season 5 will be available on most versions of Netflix. It’s also possible to purchase individual episodes (from $2.99 USD) and full seasons ($14.99) on Amazon Prime Video.
Netflix UK (and indeed most versions of Netflix) will see the first episode of Better Call Saul season 5 released on Monday, February 24 — the day after the AMC premiere. A new episode will then air every Monday. This follows the same theme as previous seasons of Better Call Saul, all of which are available on Netflix.
It’s worth knowing that some versions of Netflix (Canada, Iceland, South Africa, Spain, and the United States) will have to wait longer. In these cases, there’s no weekly episode format. Instead, the full season is likely to be released following the airing of the season 5 finale. A Netflix UK subscription starts from £5.99 per month. Netflix UK content is geo-blocked which means you’ll need a UK IP address via a VPN in order to watch it when traveling abroad.
What should I know about Better Call Saul season 5?
Season 5 of Better Call Saul sees Jimmy McGill finally take on the name of Saul Goodman as he becomes the “criminal” lawyer we come to know in Breaking Bad. All the while, Mike looks likely to be finishing his work on the underground meth lab as Gus Fring’s empire continues to expand. We can also expect Lalo Salamanca to have a larger role in season 5 as he takes over the family business following Hector’s stroke.
Which cast members are returning for Better Call Saul season 5?
It’s no surprise that Bob Odenkirk returns as Jimmy ‘Saul Goodman’ McGill while Jonathan Banks reprises his role as Mike Ehrmantraut. We’ll also see the return of Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler and Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring. Further cast members include Michael Mando (Nacho Varga), Patrick Fabian (Howard Hamlin), and Mark Margolis (Hector Salamanca).
Better Call Saul Season 5 will also feature familiar faces from Breaking Bad with Dean Norris and Steven Michael Quezada reprising their roles as Hank Schrader and Steven “Gomey” Gomez. There have also been rumors regarding appearances from Bryan Cranston (Walter White) and Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman) though such cameos in season 5 are unlikely.
