Westwood was HBO’s breakout hit of the fall, having amassed a huge following before last night’s Season 1 finale. And while it was extremely satisfying in terms of reveals, action, drama, and horror, it will be a long time before we see what happens next for Delores (Evan Rachel Wood), Bernard (Jeffrey Wright), Maeve (Thandie Newton) and the rest of the hosts for quite some time. Westworld has been greenlit for Season 2, but don’t expect it to premiere for at least a year.
The premium cable network has renewed the freshman drama for a second season of 10 episodes to air in either fall 2017 or 2018, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. “Westworld is such a big, ambitious show. I don’t know if it will be fall of 2017 or into ’18,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys told THR. “That will depend as we get up and running. With Westworld, because the production is such a big endeavor, I don’t exactly know when [it will premiere] yet. I can’t speculate other than to say it’ll either be ’17 or ’18. Probably more like ’18 and half-hours [Insecure and Divorce] in ’17 but we’re a year away so let’s see how it goes.”
If you have yet to experience Westworld for yourself, HBO customers should binge-watch it ASAP. HBO programing also recently became available from Amazon Prime for $15 a month.
Official Synopsis: A series inspired by the 1973 film of the same title written by Michael Crichton about a futuristic theme park populated by artificial beings.
