HBO has suspended one of two units filming Season 2 of Westworld after an actor in a recurring role suffered a medical emergency.
The network confirmed that the person involved is not a main character on the show and the other production unit was not affected by the incident.
“Due to a medical emergency involving a performer in a recurring role on season two of Westworld, filming on one of the two units has been temporarily suspended,” HBO said in a statement on Thursday. “The cast member was not on set when this occurred, and out of respect for the performer’s privacy, we have no additional details to share, other than that everyone at Westworld sincerely hopes for a quick recovery.”
The second season of the hit series is expected to premiere in spring of 2018. There’s no news yet if the medical situation will delay its debut.
Westworld has earned 22 nominations on this year’s Emmys, including Outstanding Drama Series. It won four trophies in crafts categories, including VFX, but lost of the marquee awards. Its regular ensemble includes Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, James Marsden, Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris.
During the San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, Westworld has teased the fans with its Season 2 trailer .
