While Westworld’s first season has unfortunately come to a close, fans won’t have to wonder if the show is coming back, as Westworld was renewed for a second season before the first season was even finished. According to Entertainment Weekly, the second season of Westworld will also run for 10 episodes. Casey Bloys, HBO programming president, told The Hollywood Reporter that a 2018 premiere date was likely.
“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.”
According to Evan Rachel Wood, the actress who plays Dolores (arguably the main character), season two of the show will pick up from where season one left off, saying season two will move at ‘warp speed.’
“I know a little about what’s coming in season two. I know how our ending for season one will segue into season two and… wow. That’s all I can say. I think it was always that season one was going to be this backstory and set up — getting to know the park and characters. I think season two is really going to be warp speed. The show might really start in season two.”
