Whenever a TV series star is impacted by either a health issue, an accident, or, well, dies, the question does come around to the show that they’re working on. Of course, people want to make sure that the actor is alright. No job is worth a person’s health, life, and safety. Yeah, there is that wonder if a new season will just be cancelled after any incident involving the star of the show.
In the case of Better Call Saul, this is less theory and more reality. Yesterday, while filming the new & final season of the Breaking Bad spinoff, star Bob Odenkirk, who plays Saul Goodman, collapsed on set. Odenkirk is receiving medical care, but nothing about his condition has been divulged at this time. He had collapsed in front of the crew for the series, who immediately called an ambulance.
We wish Bob Odenkirk a speedy recovery with whatever his ailment is. So do many others on the internet. Since Better Call Saul is ending, it looks like the new season won’t be cancelled. Thankfully, it looks like the fans are more worried about Odenkirk’s health than anything else. So let’s look at the well wishes from the fanbase, shall we?

More than one person will probably try to fight God
That would be a fight to witness.
If you watch Better Call Saul (it’s one of TV’s truly great shows) and you’ve ever felt like an outsider excluded from something you wanted to be a part of, then you identify deeply with Bob Odenkirk. I don’t know him, but he matters to me. And I’m sending my love too. https://t.co/lCqEpVxPX4
