The actor took to Twitter to share how he feels about Jimmy's story ending, telling fans "it's frankly hard for me to look at that experience, even at that character, too closely, it's just, it's too many moving parts, and they fit together too beautifully, and it's a mystery to me, how it even happened".

Odenkirk went on to thank the Better Call Saul cast and crew. writing: "I want to thank [creators] Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould for giving me the chance. I did nothing to deserve this part but I hope I earned it over six seasons.

"The cast around me Rhea Seehorn, Michael McKean, Jonathan Banks, Tony Dalton, Michael Mando, Patrick Fabian and everyone else. I mean, Giancarlo Esposito. They all made me a better actor than I am. Just working them, or watching them work, it's been an unbelievable experience."

The actor also gave shoutouts to the crew in Albuquerque, where Better Call Saul is filmed. "I'll never be around so many great people doing their job so well," he added.

He also thanked fans for giving the show a chance "because we came out of, maybe a lot of people's favourite show ever and we could've 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."

Have a look at the emotional video below.

Though Saul's story is over, creator Vince Gilligan wasn't completely opposed to another Breaking Bad spin-off. But it sounds like it will be a while yet before it makes it to our screens should he dip back into Walter White and Saul Goodman's universe.
