Better Call Saul star Rhea Seehorn has admitted she can't stop thinking about what the show's finale means – and hopes that Kim and Jimmy's love story will continue.

The Breaking Bad prequel series that told the story of dodgy lawyer Saul Goodman, aka Jimmy McGill, streamed its final episode on Netflix on Tuesday after six seasons.

In the final scene, Jimmy (played by Bob Odenkirk) was shown in prison serving an 85-year sentence, having added vast amounts of time to his original seven-and-a-half years by choosing to make a last-minute courtroom confession.

His ex-wife Kim Wexler (Seehorn) came to visit him under the pretence of being his lawyer and the pair shared one last long, emotional gaze before she left the prison.

But Seehorn told AMC that she didn't believe it was the end for Kim and Jimmy, whose outlandish scams made up some of the series' best scenes.

She said: "In my opinion that is definitely not the last time she's going to see him. But I know Peter (Gould, creator) wanted to write an ending – and he masterfully did – that, when the screen goes black, it's not just that there will be people who think one thing over the other.

"It is that people will continue the story in their head, that it's a story that is still on a trajectory that is going. There may be different opinions about which direction it is going, but it's such a smart ending because it really honours the larger philosophical questions that the show raises about actions and consequences and nature versus nurture and morality and unconditional love. "

She added: "I'm still thinking about the ending and what it means. I just happen to be a hopeless romantic, so I don't know. But I think she's absolutely going to try to figure out how to reduce his sentence! I don't know if they're ever going to live happily ever after, but I think she loves him and I think she intends to help him, but on the up and up."

The actor added that she would love to revisit the role of Kim "any time, anywhere" and said that if Better Call Saul's creators ever called her up with another project "it might just as well be a Batphone. I'll just show up."

Fans of the show agreed with Seehorn's thoughts, with one person tweeting: "better call saul is like what if we wrote breaking bad for the hopeless romantics."

Someone else added: "the best decision better call saul ever took was to make Jimmy and Kim's relationship the centerpiece of the story. that's what gave the show more heart and made it better than Breaking bad for me."

Another fan wrote: "I like how they could’ve made Better Call Saul a simple prequel show about a criminal lawyer doing criminal things but instead they made it a love story about two deeply f****d up people struggling to be better. It’s so beautiful."
