HBO has another hit on their hands with “Westworld” and fans all around the world are sitting on the edge of their seats as they try unravel the mysteries that have been presented in the first season. The show has definitely found an audience, and now it’s been confirmed that “Westworld” will be returning for a second season.
President of HBO programming, Casey Bloys, announced today that “Westworld,” “Insecure” and “Divorce” have all been renewed.
“I am thrilled to announce the pickup of our three fall series, all of which have distinctive, original voices,” said Bloys. “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.”
Ploys also told The Hollywood Reporter that he’s not sure if the second season will air in 2017, or 2018.
“Westworld is such a big, ambitious show. I don’t know if it will be fall of 2017 or into ’18,” 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.”
“Westworld” is currently averaging a gross audience of 11.7 million viewers and it only seems to be getting more and more popular with each passing week.
