'Westworld' Gets a Second Season, But We Might Be Waiting for a While
Published Nov 14, 2016The world's most beloved and fucked-up amusement park (this side of Canada's Wonderland) will be coming back, as HBO has renewed its chilling dystopian thriller Westworld for a second season.
Between all of HBO's platforms, Westworld delivered a gross audience of 11.7 million viewers, making it one of the network's most successful debuts ever.
Speaking with Indiewire, HBO programming president Casey Bloys warned that it might be a bit of a wait for more Westworld after the first season finishes airing.
"Westworld is such a big and ambitious show I'm not sure it will be fall 2017, it could go into 2018," Bloys said. "We'll have to see when we get it up and running."
Westworld isn't the only show to pick up a renewal from HBO. They've also greenlit more episodes of Divorce and Insecure.
"I wanted to wait a few weeks to make sure the ratings held up and were doing well," Bloys said of the shows. "All three seem to be connecting critic-wise, with audiences and culturally. They're doing exactly what you want a show to do, which is getting fans excited."
