These violent delights sometimes have unexpected hiatus’. Production on one of the two units filming the sophomore season of HBO’s Westworld has been suspended due to an off-set injury suffered by an actor in a recurring role.
The HBO official statement read:
“Due to a medical emergency involving a performer in a recurring role on season 2 of Westworld, filming on one of the two units has been temporarily suspended. The cast member was not on set when this occurred, and out of respect for the performer’s privacy, we have no additional details to share, other than that everyone at Westworld sincerely hopes for a quick recovery.”
As of now, the show’s second season is slated to premiere sometime next year, however, it’s not clear yet whether this incident will delay the show’s release.
Westworld was a standout hit for HBO this year with an impressive 22 Emmy nominations including Outstanding Drama series. Although the series did not win in any of the major categories, it did manage to take home four awards in the crafts categories including Outstanding Visual Effects.
