Production on season 2 of the hit HBO show ‘Westworld‘ has been temporarily suspended due to a medical emergency that has been experienced by a cast member. According to Deadline, the incident occurred off set and involved a recurring actor on the show. Out of respect for those directly involved, HBO has not released the name of the performer or any details on what exactly took place. There’s no indication yet on whether or not this will delay the release of the second season of the show. Our best wishes are with the cast and crew and we hope that the affected cast member has a speedy and full recovery.
We’ve attached the official synopsis for ‘Westworld’ below.
‘Westworld isn’t your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park — which is looked after by robotic “hosts” — allows its visitors to live out their fantasies through artificial consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park’s guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged. “Westworld” — which is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton movie of the same name — features an all-star cast that includes Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins and Golden Globe winner Ed Harris’
