WESTWORLD Renewed For Season 2 At HBO But With A Catch

HBO has renewed Westworld for season two but the critically-acclaimed show may not return until 2018. TV viewers are a fickle lot and could potentially move on to something else in that span...

HBO has renewed Westworld for a second season, but there's a catch.

In a official statement from HBO, Casey Bloys, President of HBO Programming remarked, "I am thrilled to announce the pickup of our three fall series, all of which have distinctive, original voices.  Critics and viewers alike have welcomed ‘Westworld’ and ‘Insecure,’ as well as the return of Sarah Jessica Parker to the network after 12 years with ‘Divorce.’  

In its freshman season, Westworld is averaging 11.7 million viewers an episode, which is higher than what Game of Thrones or True Detective averaged in their first seasons, respectively.

In an exclusive discussion with THR, Bloys added, "Westworld is such a big, ambitious show. I don't know if it will be fall of 2017 or into '18.  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."

Are you excited by the prospect of more Westworld? What are your thoughts on the potential of a near two-year wait for a second season?  There's the distinct possibility that its fan base could move on to something else in the interim but it seems HBO has learned its lesson from the failure of True Detective season 2 and won't rush things.



The one-hour drama series Westworldis a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged. 

The cast of the 10-episode series includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth and Clifton Collins, Jr.

Inspired by the motion picture “Westworld,” written and directed by Michael Crichton. Production companies, Bad Robot Productions, Jerry Weintraub Productions and Kilter Films in association with Warner Bros. Television. Executive producer/writer/director, Jonathan Nolan; executive producer/writer, Lisa Joy; executive producers, J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, Bryan Burk.
