Westworld isn’t going anywhere, something that we all suspected and HBO have now confirmed with a season three renewal after only two episodes have aired of season two.
Westworld was created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, who are executive producers with J.J. Abrams, Richard J. Lewis, Roberto Patino, Athena Wickham and Ben Stephenson. Nolan and Joy’s Kilter Films and Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions produce in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series is based on the cult sci-fi film of the same name written by Michael Crichton that starred Yul Brynner.
The first season averaged an estimated 13.2 million viewers per episode across platforms which is near Game of Thrones numbers. With that show on the way out it seems HBO are keen to find a replacement “AAA” show.
Westworld stars Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris, Jimmi Simpson, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, and Tessa Thompson.
