After an entire week of concerning news, we finally have a very promising update on Better Call Saul star Bob Odenkirk. The 58-year-old had been hospitalized after suffering a “heart-related” condition, with few updates on how he was really doing. Now, the Breaking Bad star has updated his fans himself, reassuring them that he is now fine.
After rumors started circulating on Twitter and other social media apps about Bob Odenkirk’s hospitalization and well-being, the actor went to Twitter himself to repudiate any rumors. Moreover, he reassured fans that he is fine and made sure to thank them for their love and support. Odenkirk tweeted:
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.
In the subsequent tweet of the thread, Odenkirk continued to explain his condition, saying he had a heart attack. Moreover, he thanked the doctors and the studios, tweeting:
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 SONY’s support and help throughout this has been next-level. I’m going to take a beat to recover but I’ll be back soon.
When will Bob Odenkirk return to shoot Better Call Saul?
As of right now, we have no update on when Better Call Saul will resume shooting amid this emergency. However, considering how quickly Odenkirk is recovering, we hope that he returns to the set in full health. So far, AMC has not revealed any such plan, as all of them are waiting for Odenkirk to recover. His performance as Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill has been so iconic that he is slowly creeping into the front and center of the Breaking Bad Universe. For his performance as Saul, he has now received four Emmy Nominations and has established an identity for himself outside of the shadows of Bryan Cranston’s Walter White and Aaron Paul’s Jessie Pinkman. The two actors also wished Odenkirk well during this difficult time.
