Reps for the two-time Emmy winner confirmed the health update in a statement to ET on Wednesday, as well as more information on what led to his hospitalization on Tuesday.

"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," the statement concluded.

Odenkirk is currently shooting the sixth and final season of Better Call Saul. The spinoff debuted in 2015, two years after the series finale of Breaking Bad. It follows con-man turned small-time lawyer, Jimmy McGill (Odenkirk), starting six years before the events of Breaking Bad, showing his transformation into the persona of criminal-for-hire Saul Goodman.
After hearing the news, many of Odenkirk's friends, fans and former co-stars -- including Bryan Cranston, David Cross and Aaron Paul, among many others -- took to social media to share their concern and pass along their well-wishes and support for the acclaimed actor.
