“Back to work on Better Call Saul! So happy to be here and living this specific life surrounded by such good people. BTW this is makeup pro-Cheri Montesanto making me not ugly for shooting!”
It’s great to see Odenkirk healthy enough to resume shooting his show, as it felt like the entire internet melted in concern when news broke over the summer that he was in the hospital after collapsing on set.
His son first confirmed he would be OK, and Odenkirk later revealed he suffered a small heart attack. He was overwhelmed by the support from the fans at the time, as everyone breathed an ENORMOUS sigh of relief that the hilarious Odenkirk was gonna be alright.
“I feel the love and it means so much,” he said. He also thanked everyone who expressed concern and appreciated the outpouring of love.
Odenkirk was a breakout star on “Breaking Bad” after a lengthy career in sketch comedy. He was also HILARIOUS in his cameo on season 2 of Tim Robinson’s “I Think You Should Leave.”
