Tuesday, July 27, an incident occurred during the filming of the sixth season of Better Call Saul. Lead actor Bob Odenkirk was rushed to hospital after suffering from illness. TMZ media reports that the latter, 58, suddenly “collapsed” before being “immediately rescued by the team, who called an ambulance”. The reasons for the discomfort have, for the moment, not been revealed. No announcement has been made regarding his current state of health.
In Better Call Saul, Bob Odenkirk plays lawyer Jimmy McGill in the American series. The actor was first seen in the hit series Breaking Bad in which he took on the features of Saul Goodman (the pseudonym of Jimmy McGill), the corrupt lawyer of Walter White (played by Bryan Cranston), the former chemistry teacher who has embarked on methamphetamine trafficking.
Better Call Saul: What to Expect for Season 6?
The sixth season of Better Call Saul will be the last. For this one, which was due to make its comeback in early 2021 (but everything has been turned upside down due to the health crisis), the producers have bet big. It will consist of thirteen episodes in total against ten usually and will return to the failed assassination attempt which targeted Lalo Salamanca played by Tony Dalton.
In the columns of the Guardian, last June, Bob Odenkirk revealed not to know the end of the series. “And I try not to find out. I like to be surprised as a spectator of the story. I have my own theories, but they are only the theories of fans”, he had let know, before add that he did not believe in the imminent death of Kim Wexler, lawyer and lover of Jimmy McGill, played by Rhea Seehorn.
