It’s official - ‘Westworld’ will be back for Season Two.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the hit TV show ‘Westworld’ has been confirmed for a Second Season. But we may be in for a bit of a wait…
“The premium cable network has renewed the freshman drama for a second season of 10 episodes to air in either fall 2017 or 2018,” they revealed. But it likely won’t be back until 2018.
HBO boss, Casey Bloys confirmed that the ambitious sci-fi show probably won’t be back until 2018… and with such incredible production values in its first season, it’s easy to see why they don’t want to rush this.
“Westworld is such a big, ambitious show,” they explained. “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.”
Of course, we’re still on six episodes into the ten-episode first season… but with just a handful of episodes to go and numerous mysteries still up in the air, it looks as though we may have a bit of a wait before we find out what’s really going on in the park.
But the showrunners are thrilled to be heading back.
“We’re thrilled that the saga of Westworld will continue for another season,” said co-creators/showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. “During the lengthy journey to the screen, our incredibly talented actors, staff and crew became a family, and we look forward to the privilege of continuing this experience with them.”
“We’re also thankful to all of our amazing partners at HBO, WBTV and Bad Robot for their steadfast support, imagination and ambition,” they added. “We simply couldn’t have made this show anywhere else.”
Will we finally get some answers before the end of Season One? Which characters will be back for Season Two?
For now, we’ll have to wait and see. But it’s going to be a long wait until 2018.
‘Westworld’ Episode 7 airs on Sky Atlantic on 15 November 2016.
