‘Westworld’ Resumes Filming After Wildfires Interrupted Production

Westworld Logo Blu-RayFires in Santa Clarita, California stopped production on Westworld for a while, but the cast and crew are hard at work to finish filming the second season of the show.

TheWrap learned that Westworld‘s forced hiatus has finally concluded, with filming moving right along as of today. HBO gave the publication the following statement:

Westworld is currently scheduled to resume shooting today. The production will have a Fire Safety Officer on set to monitor conditions throughout the day.”

The series was one of HBO’s biggest hits in 2016, and while the series was quickly renewed, development on a second season has taken longer than most shows (not surprising, considering that the development on the first season was said to have issues of its own). However, given the sheer acclaim the first season had, it only makes sense that they would take their time in developing the next chapter of the Westworld saga.

Westworld will return in Spring 2018. The series stars Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Hiroyuki Sanada, Gustaf Skarsgård, Fares Fares, Betty Gabriel, Jonathan Tucker, Neil Jackson, Katja Herbers, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Luke Hemsworth.
