‘Better Call Saul’ Star Rhea Seehorn Teases ‘Insane’ Season 6

by John Jamison

Better Call Saul fans will be relieved to know that Bob Odenkirk is “doing amazing” as he works and recovers from the heart attack he suffered earlier this year. The update comes from Rhea Seehorn, who plays alongside the Jimmy McGill-turned-Saul Goodman actor as Kim Wexler. She has high expectations for the sixth and final season of the Breaking Bad spinoff, and so should you.

Well, it depends on what you take “insane” to mean. Seehorn did not confirm whether or not her Kim Wexler character survives the final season of Better Call Saul. Nor did she speak on whether or not the show was still filming. What we do know is that there are some “deep dark secrets” about which she’s keeping her lips sealed.

During an interview with Variety, Rhea Seehorn discussed a new role she landed on an AMC series called Cooper’s Bar. Fortunately for all you Better Call Saul fans out there, she dropped a hint about what to expect from the upcoming season in 2022.

“And like I said, whether I’m in scripts or not, I get to read them, and I can tell you that this season is insane. It’s going to blow people’s minds. I can’t wait for it to come out,” said Seehorn.

When we last saw Seehorn’s Kim Wexler, she made a seemingly out-of-character transition by suggesting a plan to force an outcome on the Sandpiper case via sabotage. Was her “bad break” limited to undercutting Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian)? We’ll have to wait and see.

The ‘Better Call Saul’ Star Loves the Change of Pace In Her New Role

Better Call Saul fans have come to appreciate Rhea Seehorn’s Kim Wexler for her tendency to act with good intentions at heart. But her decisions at the end of Season 5 might have foreshadowed the shift in character she experienced when taking on a new role in an AMC series called Cooper’s Bar.

“I’m an absolute a–hole in it; I am horrible, which is fun,” Seehorn told Variety. As she puts it, the character of Kris is the “biggest d–k in Hollywood.”

She contrasted her new TV executive character with the years she spent in the Kim Wexler role. The two clearly don’t handle situations remotely close to the same way.

“It’s definitely fun, when I’m am churning and wringing hands about Kim Wexler, to be working on these scripts for Cooper’s Bar and thinking about Kris, somebody that steps over recliners and just screams and yells at people and has no tact whatsoever,” Seehorn continued in the interview.

Cooper’s Bar is a homegrown, short-form digital series that came about as a result of Seehorn and her friend Lou Mustillo fiddling around with ideas in his backyard.
