"Better Call Saul" is currently filming its sixth season and there was a scary incident during filming yesterday in New Mexico. According to TMZ, Odenkirk was shooting with cast members when he suddenly collapsed. Crew members surrounded the actor and proceeded to call an ambulance. He was rushed to the hospital but it was unclear if the actor was conscious when he was transported. TMZ also reported Bob Odenkirk is still in the hospital under the care of medical professionals.

We're hoping Bob Odenkirk gets better soon and makes a full recovery from this incident. Season six of "Better Call Saul" will be the final season of the show.
