“Better Call Saul” is back into production on the final season of the “Breaking Bad” prequel after Bob Odenkirk returned to work following a heart attack...
Saul Goodman is back!
Just five weeks after he suffered a heart attack and collapsed on set during filming, Bob Odenkirk has officially returned to work on the final season of “Better Call Saul.”
The 58-year-old actor posted a photo on social media showing him getting ready to shoot a scene as he gets back behind the camera after a scary incident landed him in the hospital back in July.
“Back to work on Better Call Saul!” Odenkirk wrote on Twitter. “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!”

Odenkirk collapsed on set while filming the “Breaking Bad” prequel and he later announced that he had suffered a heart attack but he was expected to make a full recovery.
Now just five weeks later, Odenkirk is back to work filming the final episodes for the critically acclaimed series that follows the journey of attorney Jimmy McGill and his eventual transformation into sleazy strip mall lawyer Saul Goodman, who eventually becomes a partner with Walter White in his meth cooking empire.
It’s not known yet how closely the end of “Better Call Saul” will bump up against “Breaking Bad,” although there have been rumors for several seasons that either Aaron Paul or possibly Bryan Cranston could make a cameo appearance before the series wraps.
For now, filming and production is back underway in New Mexico with Odenkirk looking healthy and happy!
