Six-time Emmy winner Carol Burnett will appear as a guest star in the sixth and final season of “Better Call Saul,” portraying a character named “Marion.” In addition to Burnett, as previously announced, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will appear reprising their “Breaking Bad” roles of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, respectively, as the show draws to its conclusion.

The series, produced by Sony Pictures Television, returns for its final episodes beginning July 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC and AMC+, with the series finale on Aug. 15.  The final episodes will conclude the complicated journey and transformation of its compromised hero, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), into criminal lawyer Saul Goodman.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of my favorite show,” 89-year-old Burnett said in a statement.

The series ended the first half of its current sixth season as the No. 1 acquisition driver in the history of the AMC+ streaming service, and the No. 3 cable drama for the current broadcast season in key demos. The mid-season finale on May 23 delivered more than 2.2 million viewers in Nielsen live+3 ratings.

Since its season premiere, “Better Call Saul” has generated more than 17 million engagements across social platforms, ranking as the No. 1 drama on broadcast and cable for conversation and organic search and the No. 1 cable drama in owned social engagement and content shares, according to data from ListenFirst.
