It probably won’t come as a surprise but HBO has renewed Westworld, their hit sci-fi epic, for a second season.
HBO revealed the news on Twitter by tweeting, “Bring yourself back online. Westworld is renewed for Season 2.” Two other new shows, Insecure and Divorce, have also been renewed by the network. The second season of Westworld will be made up of ten episodes, just as the first season was.
However, those ten episodes may not come to your television screens until 2018. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, HBO’s programming president Casey Bloys explained why that is the case. When asked when we can expect season 2 he said: “My suspicion is sometime in 2018 because of how big the world is and what goes into shooting it. So I don’t have a date exactly – they’re going to have to map it out and write the scripts – but my guess is sometime in ‘18.”
Even if we are unlikely to see a second season any time soon, it is great to know that it is definitely coming.
