‘Westworld’ Renewed For Season 2 By HBO

Recommended Posts

HBO's new drama Westworld havs been renewed for a second season of 10 episodes each with all key auspices returning.


Sci-fi western Westworld, because of its elaborate production, will come back for a second season in late 2017 or first half of 2018, according to Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programming.


VlkyDu0.jpgBloys broke with HBO tradition to give new series renewals right off the bat, giving the three series Season 2 pickups seven airings into their first seasons, based on six weeks worth of ratings data across the entire week and digital platforms.


For Westword, “It came out strong but I wanted to make sure that it stayed strong and we had something great here.”


Westworld, developed by Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy, is tracking as one of HBO’s biggest first-season drama series ever. Season-to-date, it is averaging a gross audience of 11.7 million viewers, outperforming the first season of Game of Thrones and on par or slightly below with Season 1 of True Detective.


“We’re thrilled that the saga of Westworld will continue for another season,” said 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. We simply couldn’t have made this show anywhere else.”
