AMC has announced the legendary comedian will serve as a guest star during its final season and play a character named Marion. No other details have been revealed at this time. “I’m thrilled to be a part of my favorite show,” said Burnett in a succinct statement.
Burnett isn’t the only high profile actor boarding the conclusion of Better Call Saul. As previously announced, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will be reprising their respective Breaking Bad roles as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman.
Better Call Saul is returning for its final six episodes on July 11th, with the series finale airing on August 15th.
