‘WESTWORLD’ renewed for a second season with HBO, but we may have to wait till 2018?!

Week to week, WESTWORLD has been nothing shy of an adventure. The one-hour drama series is 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.

Last nights Episode #7: “Trompe L’Oeil”,was one that packed a punch in terms of its storyline twist! Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and William (Jimmi Simpson) journey into treacherous terrain; Maeve (Thandie Newton) delivers an ultimatum; Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) considers his next move. We can’t spoil the episode because we want you to read on but it was great!

But even as we follow the current season, HBO has booked a return ticket to WESTWORLD! 

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.”

THR continues to report: The drama, which has taken a live-same-day hit when airing against AMC juggernaut THE WALKING DEAD, has made up that difference on DVR and On-Demand/HBO Go returns. Season to date, WESTWORLD is averaging a gross audience of 11.7 million total viewers — besting GAME OF THRONES and TRUE DETECTIVE during their comparable first-season frames.

This is great news for all WESTWORLD fans! And another season to assume we know what is going on and loving every minute of it!
