5th season of Better call Saul premiered on AMC on February 23, 2020 and once again consisted of 10 episodes. Ended on April 20, 2020.
6th season of Better call Saul is confirmed, but faced significant delays (the longest in the show’s history). Filming is still ongoing as of September 2021 (full story on that in just a second) and is expected sometime in 2022.
Season six is set to be the series finale, with a total of 13 episodes capping Jimmy McGill’s full transition to Saul Goodman.

As the show airs for the first time in the US, it takes a while for the license to become available to Netflix in those regions and they don’t get the weekly treatment that others do.
Season four, for example, was added to Netflix on February 9, 2020, just weeks before S5 aired. However, the third season was added to Netflix in March 2018 ahead of its August air date.
