Odenkirk bids adieu to Better Call Saul
Drama Better Call Saul marked as a spin-off to the award-winning series Breaking Bad. The show received a lot of praise, not only from the audience but also critics. The series concluded on August 15, 2022, and Odenkirk bid a heartfelt goodbye. Taking to his Instagram handle, the actor shared a video in which he revealed how he was feeling about the show coming to an end.
The actor said, “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 because it’s frankly hard for me to look at that experience and even at that character too closely. It’s too many moving parts and they fit together too beautifully and it’s a mystery to me how it even happened.”
He further expressed his gratitude toward the viewers and said, “Thanks for giving us a chance, because we came out of maybe a lot of people’s most favorite show ever and we could have been hated for simply trying to do a show, but we were given a chance and hopefully we made the most of it.”
