Iconic Westworld set burns down in Los Angeles fire

‘Westworld’ Location at Paramount Ranch Burns Down

‘Westworld’ Location at Paramount Ranch Burns Down

According to the Malibu Times, they'd initially planned to use it as a dude ranch, but instead placed ads in the trades and changed tack when studios expressed interest in using it as a filming location.

Partly set in Western-themed park wherein tourists live out their fantasies or darkest desires, Westworld has filmed the Main Street scenes at the historic Western town area at Paramount Ranch.

Alongside the pics, the man wrote: 'Sad for the fans of Westworld and shows like Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as the Paramount Ranch western town set has burned to the ground in the Woolsey Fire'. The show also films at Melody Ranch in Santa Clarita, as well as Utah and other locations.

Westworld was renewed for a third season of HBO.

"We are sorry to share the news that the #WoolseyFire has burned Western Town at #ParamountRanch in Agoura", the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation service tweeted Friday. It was acquired by the National Park Service in 1980 but has continued to function as a filming location, serving as a location for the first two seasons of the sci-fi series "Westworld". Sadly, all of that vibrant Hollywood history has been burned to ash by the wildfire.

You can find out more information about the Paramount Ranch here. Westworld is not now in production, and as the area has been evacuated, we do not yet know the extent of the damage to any structures remaining there. It was immediately in the path of the fast-moving Woolsey Fire, which started yesterday and has increased to 14,000 acres and now threatens the city of Malibu which has been evacuated.

Many stars have been forced to evacuate as a result of the wildfire, including the Kardashian family, Alyssa Milano, Melissa Etheridge, Rainn Wilson and Guillermo del Toro. HBO said it did not know extent of the damage and expressed concern for "all those affected by these disgusting fires". Dozens of nearby homes in the area have also been torched.
