Bob Odenkirk's hit AMC series Better Call Saul may had ended Monday night, but his gratitude for the show's fans will live on.

"Everybody's been asking me how I feel about saying goodbye to Saul Goodman and Better Call Saul, and I'm not good at answering the question," the 59-year-old actor tweeted on Tuesday, "because it's frankly hard for me to look at that experience, and even at that character, too closely. It's too many moving parts, and they fit together too beautifully, and it's a mystery to me how it even happened."

In addition to praising Saul's co-creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould, Odenkirk shared his appreciation for fans' support over the years.

"Thanks for giving us a chance. We came out of maybe a lot of people's most favorite show ever [in Breaking Bad], and we could have been hated for simply trying to do a show," he said. "But we weren't. We were given a chance, and hopefully we made the most of it. Thank you for staying with us."

As the Breaking Bad prequel aired its final episode ever, it wasn't necessarily the plot that got fans talking on social media.

More than halfway through the finale, Twitter users began complaining of an outage on AMC+ that led to the app logging viewers out of the streaming platform.

"Kicked me out of the app while watching the series finale of Better Call Saul. Now the app won't let me log back in," wrote one user.

"AMC decided to crash in the middle of the Better Call Saul finale. Some heads are gonna roll," added someone else.

AMC+ eventually addressed the mishap, writing on their official Twitter page, "Hello -- we are aware of issues for some users streaming tonight's #BetterCallSaul. We are working on a fix ASAP."
