One more? 'Westworld' is the latest production to stop recording for next season after recording a positive test for covid-19 on one of the production team members. According to information from Warner Bros. Television, the activities will be stopped on sets for two days next week, after they started earlier this winter.
Shown in Brazil by channels HBO, the series joins a list of TV shows that had to take a break from work due to positive cases of the disease, including upcoming seasons of 'Bridgerton', 'American Horror Story' and 'House of the Dragon', the derivative of 'Game of Thrones'.
The announcement is certainly alarming, not just for 'Westworld', but for film recordings, series in general, given the back increase in cases in the UK and other countries around the world. With stoppages starting to once again become a recurrent subject for several productions, it is important that all care and caution be used, aiming at the safety of everyone involved while the programs are re-recorded.
Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy in 2016, 'Westworld' takes place in a western and tech park, inhabited by robot hosts who interact as human beings with local guests. In the second year, it was revealed that there are other similar venues, such as Samurai World, while the following season took place partly in the outside world.
The HBO series starring Evan Rachel Wood, Anthony Hopkins, Jimmi Simpson, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Luke Hemsworth, Talulah riley, Louis Herthum, Angela Sarafyan, Thandie Newton e Ed Harris is a critical and public success, and had the most watched first season among the network's original productions at the time.
