'Westworld' and 'SWAT' suspend production due to California wildfires

A wildfire in southern California stalled the production of the CBS drama series S.W.A.T. andHBO's Westworld on Tuesday.

"Due to nearby wildfires, Westworld stopped production earlier today and will resume filming as soon as it's safe to do so", an HBO spokesperson told BuzzFeed News in a statement. Filming for the show takes place in and around the Santa Clarita area, a location that is also used for a number of other CBS shows.

The Rye Fire broke out as firefighters were already battling two separate brush fires, the Thomas Fire in Ventura County and the Creek Fire near Sylmar.

"S.W.A.T." films at Santa Clarita Studios in Valenica, California, about 40 miles north of Los Angeles.

The writers of S.W.A.T. also cited safety concerns as the reason for the show's delayed filming schedule. As a result, the 5 Freeway closed, impacting traffic on the major roads. "It's a very hard moment, but we will get through this", Garcetti said. "We're in a wind-driven fire event", said Macklin.

The fire has prompted the evacuation of at least 150,000 people, as strong winds and dry vegetation fuelled a blaze that has seen one million acres burn this year. However, a few water-dropping helicopters have already reached the scene. Showrunner Jonathan Nolan has said that the production for Westworld 2 will be twice as ambitious as the first season, but we still have no idea just how upped the ante is. The cast and crew of the series brought home five Emmy awards.
