ALBUQUERQUE — Bob Odenkirk is back shooting Better Call Saul, six weeks after having a heart attack.

Odenkirk on Wednesday tweeted a photo of himself getting made up to play title character Saul Goodman in the AMC series, indicating that shooting had resumed on its sixth and final season.

“Back to work on Better Call Saul!” Odenkirk said. “So happy to be here and living this specific life surrounded by such good people. BTW this is makeup pro Cheri Montesanto making me not ugly for shooting!”



Odenkirk has been nominated for four Emmys for playing luckless lawyer Jimmy McGill, who becomes increasingly corrupt and adopts the pseudonym Saul Goodman, the “criminal lawyer,” who appeared in dozens of episodes of Breaking Bad before getting his own spin-off.

Both shows were shot in, and mostly set in, New Mexico.

Hidden hand in jacket- free mason. Sign symbolism, I know your cult. Love your movies, get out of the satanic practices of free masons.
