Bob is back!

Bob Odenkirk confirmed on Wednesday he has returned to work on the set of his hit TV series “Better Call Saul.”

The Emmy-nominated actor, 58, suffered a heart attack and collapsed while filming the show just months ago. 

“Back to work on Better Call Saul! 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!” he joked on Twitter.

In late July, the actor collapsed on the set of “Better Call Saul” in Culver City, California. Days later, he took to social media to address the reports and thanked fans and loved ones for their well wishes.

“To my family and friends who have surrounded me this week. And for the outpouring of love from everyone who expressed concern and care for me. It’s overwhelming. But I feel the love and it means so much,” he tweeted.
