HBO temporarily stops production on “Westworld” season 4 after hearing that an unnamed member of the production team has tested positive for COVID-19, Deadline reported. The shutdown lasts for two days, provided no other cases appear in the meantime. The show had begun filming earlier this summer, so the crew was deep in the middle of the production process when the news came in.
Apart from “Westworld”, there have been other shows and movies that have been forced to take unplanned breaks in production due to new COVID-19 cases, including another HBO production, the highly anticipated “Game of Thrones” spin -off “House of the Dragon.” Elsewhere in the industry, “Bridgerton” and “American Horror Story” have stopped as a result of positive COVID-19 tests.
“Westworld” Season 4 is starring Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris and Thandie Newton as well as “Breaking Bad” veteran Aaron Paul and MCU’s King of Asgard, Tessa Thompson.
