After six critically acclaimed seasons over a seven-year run, Better Call Saul came to a close with the fittingly titled episode "Saul Gone." The popular Breaking Bad spinoff series follows the exploits of Jimmy McGill before he was known as Saul Goodman, and proved itself to be a worthy follow-up to the original series. Much of this success is thanks to the incredibly talented cast of Better Call Saul, many of whom reprise their roles from Breaking Bad, including Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman. With the show at an end, the stars of Better Call Saul are moving on to a wide array of new TV shows and movies.

Better Call Saul was able to thrive on its various storylines for each character, even more so than Breaking Bad. The show expanded on familiar characters while also giving fresh storylines to the new ones, and the cast members of Better Call Saul were able to bring emotionally breathtaking performances to their respective characters. Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, and Jonathan Banks never failed to do their characters justice, and while Better Call Saul may be over, there are plenty of new projects featuring this cast to look forward to.

Bob Odenkirk

Bob Odenkirk, who starred as the titular Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill, already has a few new projects lined up now that Better Call Saul has ended. He plays Bob the Goon in 2022's The People's Joker, a coming-of-age superhero film that unofficially parodies characters from the Batman franchise. Odenkirk stars as Jonathan Wigglesworth in the 2023 movie Worlds Apart, which follows three couples who are stuck at home during the beginning of a lockdown. The 2023 TV series Straight Man, based on the book of the same name by Richard Russo, will also star Bob Odenkirk as William Henry Devereaux Jr., described by Odenkirk himself as "a humorously disgruntled professor dealing with the world of academia and the security and instability of that world."

Jonathan Banks

Jonathan Banks delivered one of the most powerful performances of his career in Better Call Saul, continuing his role as ex-cop turned criminal Mike Ehrmantraut from Breaking Bad. His next role will be in Constellation, an upcoming psychological thriller TV series created by Peter Harness. Banks will star as the character Henry alongside Noomi Rapace as Jo, a woman who returns to Earth to find parts of her life missing. The upcoming film The Damaged, which follows two Vegas hit men on a mission, will feature Jonathan Banks as the star and co-writer alongside Conrad Goode.

Patrick Fabian

Patrick Fabian's role as Howard Hamlin is memorable due to fan perception of the character constantly changing throughout Better Call Saul's run. Fabian has since appeared in Big Shot's season 2 on Disney+, playing Mark in three episodes. He will star as River's Dad in the horror film Snow Falls, set to release in January 2023. Fabian will also star as Matt MacLaren in the upcoming romantic comedy The Other Zoe, where a high school senior with no romantic interest finds herself mistaken as the girlfriend of a boy with amnesia.

Rhea Seehorn

Rhea Seehorn proved to be a fan favorite as Kim Wexler, gradually shifting from Saul's by-the-book foil to his partner in crime. She even made her directorial debut with Better Call Saul season 6, episode 4 "Hit and Run," making her the first cast member to direct an episode of Better Call Saul. Seehorn has since appeared as No-One victim in CBS' The Late Show with Stephen Colbert season 8, episode 26 "Kerry Washington/Joe Walsh." Most notable, however, is Seehorn's role in the TV series Cooper's Bar, where she also serves as co-creator, director, and executive producer.

Michael Mando

Michael Mando offered one of the most emotional story arcs in Better Call Saul through his performance as Nacho Varga. The character started as merely a supporting antagonist, but Mando was able to elevate him to a fan favorite who constantly had viewers on the edge of their seats. Michael Mando's next starring role will be as Manny Cespedes in the TV series Sinking Spring in 2023. Funnily enough, the show involves DEA agents like Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad, but Sinking Spring will follow delinquents who pose as DEA agents and end up unraveling a massive hidden narcotics corridor.

Michael McKean

Michael McKean starred as Chuck McGill in Better Call Saul's first three seasons, but his performance is still one of the show's most memorable, leaving a major impact on the rest of the series. After making a final guest appearance in the series finale, McKean has since appeared as Sleazy MC in Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. He was also set to voice a character in Scoob!: Holiday Haunt, but the special was canceled by Warner Bros. Discovery despite the creative team choosing to complete it. McKean will next appear as David St. Hubbins in Spinal Tap II, set to release in 2024.

Tony Dalton

Tony Dalton's role as Lalo Salamanca may have come later in Better Call Saul, but he quickly earned his place as a fan favorite. Dalton was able to seamlessly switch between a comedic and terrifying persona as Lalo, making him one of the show's most interesting and memorable villains. Apart from appearing in Better Call Saul's behind-the-scenes content, same as the rest of the cast, Dalton hasn't been in anything new since the show ended, and is not currently scheduled to star in any upcoming movies or TV shows. However, Dalton has expressed interest in reprising his role as the Swordsman from Hawkeye in future MCU projects.

Giancarlo Esposito

Giancarlo Esposito's performance as Gus Fring has cemented him as one of TV's greatest villains, both in Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad. Esposito has quite a few projects lined up following Better Call Saul's conclusion, already voicing the character Faraday in the English dub of Netflix's Cyberpunk: Edgerunners anime series. He lends his voice to the Harley Quinn animated series as well, reprising his role as Lex Luthor, and is also set to reprise the role of Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian season 3. Esposito's other roles include Gray Parish in the TV series Parish and the voice of Marshall in the Russo Brothers film The Electric State.

Other Notable BCS Actors

In addition to its regular cast, the creators of Better Call Saul surprised fans by having other Breaking Bad actors reprise their roles. Season 6 brought back an iconic duo in the form of Bryan Cranston as Walter White and Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman. Cranston has had a number of notable roles since Breaking Bad ended, and is now set to appear in the spy film Argylle, as well as Wes Anderson's Asteroid City. Aaron Paul, meanwhile, continued to appear as Caleb Nichols in the hit sci-fi series Westworld, which has been canceled after four seasons.
