Bob Odenkirk Reveals He Suffered ‘Minor Heart Attack’ Following Collapse On Set

After falling on the set of the famous show Better Call Saul, TV star Bob Odenkirk has explained what led to his hospitalization.

The Breaking Bad star was admitted to the hospital in New Mexico earlier this week, with reports that he was suffering from a “heart-related event.”

Odenkirk updated fans on his status through Twitter, calling the ordeal “overwhelming.”

“Hi. It’s Bob on the line. Thank you very much” He started his new job.

“To my loved ones who have been by my side this week. Also, thank you to everyone who expressed concern and love for me. It’s exhausting.”

“I feel the love,” Odenkirk continued, “and that means so much.”

When asked about his hospitalization, the actor said that he had a “small heart attack.”

“But thanks to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who knew how to correct the blockage without surgery, I’m going to be well,” he explained.

He complimented Better Call Saul’s production company, AMC, and SONY for their “next-level” support.

“I’m going to take a break to recover,” he said, “but I’ll be back soon.”

The actor’s representatives told Variety earlier this week that he was in “stable condition” after being admitted to the hospital.

“He and his family would want to express their gratitude to the amazing doctors and nurses who have cared for him, as well as his cast, crew, and producers who have remained by his side,” the statement added.

“The Odenkirks would also like to thank everyone for their good wishes and respectfully request their privacy as Bob recovers.”

In an Instagram story, Odenkirk’s son Nick, 22, stated that his father was “going to be okay.”

Better Call Saul, a spin-off of the award-winning series Breaking Bad, is now in production for its sixth and final season.

For the series, Odenkirk resurrected his famous con-man lawyer character Saul Goodman, providing a backdrop to the events of Breaking Bad.

The actor has received four Golden Globe awards for best actor in a drama television series and four Emmy nominations for outstanding lead actor in a drama series for his work on the show.

Better Call Saul’s 13-episode final season is set to broadcast in early 2022.
