“Better Call Saul” Season 5 will take Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) one step closer to the character he becomes in the “Breaking Bad” series. In a recent interview, the actor talked about the ending for his character that the fans may not like to see.

The spin-off series is a prequel that shows the transition of Jimmy over the years from a regular person and a loyal brother to the crooked lawyer he becomes later in life. The show has also been showing scenes from after the events in “Breaking Bad,” in a time when Jimmy has a new identity and has been living in hiding.

In an interview with Los Angeles Times, Odenkirk jokingly said that he is curious to know what will happen to “that guy,” referring to his character with the assumed identity of Gene Taković. The show has been showing glimpses of the future, with Jimmy managing a local Cinnabon somewhere in Omaha.

“Better Call Saul” Season 5 is also expected to show these glimpses of the future. The fans may eventually get to see how things pan out for Jimmy in the end, but according to Odenkirk things aren’t looking great.

Odenkirk said that he hopes his character finds some “equilibrium” in the future. He pointed out that his character has been “ yearning and striving and falling short every day.”

Jimmy has been through a lot over the years, and Odenkrik teased that his character may be “too angry inside” and “has to hurt other people” after what he has bottled up inside him. He said that he isn’t sure how things will end for his character, but he pointed out that the showrunners don’t usually write happy endings for the main characters.

One character who didn’t have a happy ending on the show was Chuck McGill (Michael McKean). In an interview with IMDB, McKean said that he was never told that his character was mentally ill. The actor always believed that the ailment of his character was real, and he was playing the role accordingly.

Meanwhile, filming of “Better Call Saul” Season 5 is nearly complete. Odenkirk confirmed in an interview with “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that they are near the end of the production. The show is expected to premiere sometime next year.
