It is unclear how much filming time on the season remains.

“I like to be excited like a fan or an audience member because this show, similar to Breaking Bad, these writers figure out ways to do something you didn’t expect but that makes perfect sense,” Odenkirk said in April on the James Corden Show.

“I don’t know how they do it, but they do it over and over and I look forward to seeing where we end up.”

The actor said he didn’t initially like his character, but ultimately, playing Goodman had “changed his life”.

He said: “I know as I get closer to the end of it, I’m going to have to somehow reconcile with saying goodbye to this gift that I got from the universe.

“It’s hard to take into account how much it brought into my life.”

More recently, Odenkirk starred in the film titled Nobody where he played a seemingly bland family man and office worker, Hutch Mansell.

However, it’s clear that the movie is not that simple as Hutch chooses not to aid his teenage son in fighting back when the family home is invaded by burglars.
