On Wednesday (September 8), he posted a photo of himself in the hair and makeup chair to his 822,900 Twitter followers.

Alongside the photo, he shared the caption: “Back to work on Better Call Saul! So happy to be here and living this specific life surrounded by such good people.

“By the way this is makeup pro Cheri Montesanto making me not ugly for shooting!”

Declarations of love were common in the comments, with one saying: “So happy you’re back! Love you Bob!"

One fan was left speechless by the good news, saying: "Can’t explain how happy this makes me!”

Bob had explained his absence in July as he tweeted on July 30: “Hi. It’s Bob. Thank you. 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.

“I had a small heart attack. But I’m going to be ok thanks to Rosa Estrada and the doctors who knew how to fix the blockage without surgery.

“Also, AMC and Sony’s support and help throughout this has been next-level. I’m going to take a beat to recover but I’ll be back soon.”

The Emmy award winner is in the middle of filming the sixth and final season of the Breaking Bad spin-off, which began production on March 10.

The dedicated actor has made it clear he plans to finish filming after the life-threatening incident, much to fans' fanfare.

Co-star David Cross, 57, told fans on Twitter after the incident: “Just got off the phone with Bob and he’s doing great!

“Joking and japing and joshing. Both he and his family are overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and concern everyone has shown. You will be hearing from him soon. But he’s doing really well!”
