Better Call Saul titular star Bob Odenkirk was rushed to the hospital after collapsing on the set of the AMC series.

A prequel to Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul puts the spotlight on Odenkirk's Jimmy McGill, a good-hearted lawyer who gets caught up in the criminal world of Albuquerque, New Mexico and becomes the greedy Saul Goodman. The series also features other Breaking Bad characters, including Jonathan Banks' Mike Ehrmantraut, Giancarlo Esposito's Gus Fring, Raymond Cruz's Tuco Salamanca and Dean Norris' Hank Schrader. It is currently filming its sixth and final season, which will premiere in 2022 and consist of 13 episodes.
