After scaring us all, Better Call star Saul Bob Odenkirk has released his news after his heart failure last week.

After collapsing on set last Tuesday while filming the sixth and final season of AMC’s Better Call Saul, Bob Odenkirk was immediately taken to a hospital in New Mexico.

An announcement that raised serious concerns among fans of the 58-year-old actor, but also of his actor friends including Bryan Cranston who showed his support. Very quickly, his representatives and AMC made it known that he was in stable condition.

But news was expected from Bob Odenkirk himself. It is now done. The actor used his Twitter account to thank his family, friends and fans for the “outpouring of love” following a “little heart attack.”

I had a little heart attack. But it will be fine thanks to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who were able to treat the clot without surgery. In addition, the support and assistance from AMC and SONY throughout this operation has been second to none. I will take some time to recover, but will be back soon.

Bob Odenkirk’s discomfort came just over halfway through the shoot for the sixth season. We do not yet know when it will resume.
