Bob Odenkirk, star of the hit Breaking Bad spinoff series Better Call Saul, was in stable condition Wednesday evening after he collapsed on set in New Mexico while filming the show's sixth and final season.

Odenkirk, 58, was taken to a hospital by ambulance on Tuesday. Representatives for the actor confirmed late Wednesday that Odenkirk experienced "a heart related incident" and was now in stable condition.

“He and his family would like to express gratitude for the incredible doctors and nurses looking after him, as well as his cast, crew and producers who have stayed by his side," representatives said in a statement provided to BuzzFeed News. "The Odenkirks would also like to thank everyone for the outpouring of well wishes and ask for their privacy at this time as Bob works on his recovery.”

His son, actor Nate Odenkirk, also tweeted, "He's going to be okay."

According to TMZ, which first reported the collapse, Odenkirk "went down, and was immediately surrounded by crew members who called an ambulance."

A source close to the actor confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the report was accurate.

It is unknown how far the cast and crew are into filming the award-winning AMC drama's final season, or how Odenkirk's hospitalization may affect production.

A spokesperson for AMC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Michael McKean, who plays Chuck McGill on the show, tweeted just after midnight Wednesday that he was "sending huge love" to the actor.

"You got this, brother," McKean said.
