Bob Odenkirk Shares Heartwarming Message As "Better Call Saul" Comes To An End
Breaking Bad's beloved prequel series, Better Call Saul has officially come to an end after six seasons, and as he says goodbye to the titular character, leading actor Bob Odenkirk has shared some heartwarming words with his Instagram followers.
"Everybody's been asking me how I feel about saying goodbye to Saul Goodman and Better Call Saul, and I'm not good at answering the question," the 59-year-old shared in a video. "Because it's frankly hard for me to look at that experience, and even at that character, too closely."

In his speech, Odenkirk acknowledged that some audiences may have been reluctant to give a spin-off to something as successful as Breaking Bad a chance. "We came out of maybe a lot of people's most favourite show ever, and we could have been hated for simply trying to do a show. But we weren't. We were given a chance, and hopefully, we made the most of it. Thank you for staying with us," he said.

"[It was] a little slow at times, but in the end — if you paid attention — it was about big, big things inside people," Odenkirk said of Better Call Saul, which first premiered in 2015, just two years after its predecessor's finale.
