Westworld and S.W.A.T. Reboot Suspend Filming Due to Wildfires
Due to the wildfires occurring in Southern California, CBS's "S.W.A.T" and HBO's "Westworld" have suspended production. Both series film near Santa Clarita, where the Rye Fire is located.
A tweet was released by Swat's writer's room, saying, "Production of @swatcbs has been suspended for the day due to wildfires and unsafe air near our stages. Safety of cast and crew come first. Prayers to all affected by these fires."
HBO also commented on the suspension, saying, "Due to nearby wildfires, ‘Westworld' stopped production earlier today and will resume filming as soon as it's safe to do so."
So far, the fire has burned over 500 acres of land and even shut down the 5 Freeway in both directions.
