Bob Odenkirk was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday after collapsing while on set in New Mexico for AMC’s Better Call Saul, as Variety reports.

Better Call Saul is in production for its sixth and final season. The 58-year-old actor collapsed during shooting for the show on Tuesday and crew members called an ambulance to take him to the hospital, where he is currently undergoing medical treatment. The cause of the collapse has not been disclosed. TMZ first reported the news.

Better Call Saul centers around Odenkirk’s character, lawyer Saul Goodman, who was first introduced in Breaking Bad. The offshoot prequel series follows the trajectory of a shifty Jimmy McGill as he transforms into criminal defense lawyer Saul Goodman, who showcases glimmers of his conman beginnings while also working towards respectability as an attorney. The role has garnered Odenkirk four Golden Globe nominations and four Emmy nominations. He also recently appeared in the lead role for action film, Nobody, which arrived in March.

The 13-episode final season of Better Call Saul is slated to premiere next year.
