The update immediately earned thousands of replies and likes from his fans who continuously pray for his recovery. People also expressed their excitement to see him back again.

What Happened to Odenkirk?
On July 27, Odenkirk shocked the set of the series after collapsing while the filming was ongoing.
According to The Associated Press, the crew members called an ambulance and sent the 58-year-old to the nearest health facility. The source close to Odenkirk reportedly was not allowed to divulge more details about the incident publicly.
At that time, details about the cause of his sudden health scare were unknown. The actor also observed a healthy lifestyle which made everyone question the incident again.
For what it's worth, he revealed in 2018 that he never drank again for 30 years until he appeared on an episode of "Drunk History" in 2016.
Fans unceasingly waited for 24 hours and got anxious after a death hoax surfaced. Multiple news outlets claimed that the actor died while shooting the series. Meanwhile, others claimed that Odenkirk lost consciousness because of the COVID-19 vaccine he received months ago.
After waiting for an update, fans finally learned that he suffered from a small heart attack. The actor himself said that he would be okay after the health emergency.
"Thanks to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who knew how to fix the blockage without surgery. Also, AMC and SONYs support and help throughout this has been next-level. I'm going to take a beat to recover but I'll be back soon," he went on.
