SPOILER WARNING!

The emotional series finale of "Better Call Saul" is finally in the books, and with no more secrets to keep or twists to spoil, series co-creator Peter Gould is now able to be more candid about the process of creating the final season. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the showrunner spilled his guts about the difficulties the crew faced while shooting the grand finale.
Aside from the logistical nightmare of shooting during COVID-19, Bob Odenkirk's heart attack, and a lawsuit filed against “Better Call Saul,” Gould paints a picture of the trials his team faced while shooting the series finale. When looking for a realistic set for Jimmy's trial, the crew found the Supreme Court of New Mexico was only available on weekends, so they were forced to shift their shooting schedule.
On top of that, the weather caused its own set of problems, and Gould recounted that "We had a giant snowstorm that actually stuck a good portion of the crew at a location." They also shot at a working prison that was freezing cold, which Gould recalls as both sobering and upsetting.
