Bob Odenkirk Thanks Fans for Outpouring of Support After Heart Attack

For the first time since his heart-related incident on the set of Better Call Saul earlier this week, Bob Odenkirk has released a statement to his friends and family on a public platform. Friday afternoon, the beloved comedian took to Twitter to give thanks to his followers who "expressed concern and care."

"Hi. It's Bob. Thank you," the Nobody star tweeted. "To my family and friends who have surrounded me this week. And for the outpouring of love from everyone who expressed concern and care for me. It's overwhelming. But I feel the love and it means so much."

He went on to reveal he had suffered a heart attack. "I had a small heart attack," the actor confirmed. "But I'm going to be ok 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."

Late Tuesday night, news surfaced of Odenkirk's ailment. First reported by TMZ, the actor collapsed on the set of Better Call Saul, the hit AMC show currently filming its sixth and final season. It wasn't until Wednesday when fans were updated to his status, where it was revealed Odenkirk had suffered a heart attack.

His son Nate then tweeted, "He's going to be okay." Shortly after his son's comments, Odenkirk's team released a lengthier statement with more details.
