On Air With Ryan Seacrest

Weekdays 3pm-7pm

Bob Odenkirk arrives at the 71st Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater on September 22, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

After collapsing on set while filming the sixth and final season of Better Call Saul, Bob Odenkirk took to Twitter to alleviate fans’ worry about his health.

Bob wrote, “Hi. It’s Bob. Thank you. To my family and friends who have surrounded me this week. And for the outpouring of love from everyone who expressed concern and care for me. It’s overwhelming. But I feel the love and it means so much.”

He followed that up writing, “I had a small heart attack. But I’m going to be ok thanks to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who knew how to fix the blockage without surgery.
Also, AMC and SONYs support and help throughout this has been next-level. I’m going to take a beat to recover but I’ll be back soon.”

Noting that he will need to take some time to recover, as one should expect after a heart attack, fans showed their love and support for the actor.

After the 58-year-old actor collapsed during the New Mexico shooting for the show, crew members called an ambulance to take him to the hospital.

Better Call Saul centers around Odenkirk’s character, lawyer Saul Goodman, who was first introduced in Breaking Bad. The prequel series follows the trajectory of a shifty Jimmy McGill as he transforms into criminal defense lawyer Saul Goodman, who showcases snippets of his conman beginnings while also working towards as a respectable attorney.

The role has garnered Odenkirk four Golden Globe nominations and four Emmy nominations. He also recently appeared in the lead role for action film, Nobody, which arrived in March.

The 13-episode final season of Better Call Saul is slated to premiere next year.
