Lord knows, HBO could use some good news. It seems the past few months has seen nothing but problems coming from the premium cable network, and one of the biggest surrounds the high profile sci-fi series “Westworld.” Production on the adaptation of Michael Crichton‘s novel was shut down in January in order to address some creative concerns, and signs didn’t look good when it was said the series, originally slated to arrive this year, might be pushed to 2017. But it looks like everything has worked out.
HBO has announced that the ten-episode first season of “Westworld” will debut this fall. Featuring an extensive cast including Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth and Clifton Collins, Jr., the show is described by HBO as a dark odyssey into the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, the show will explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged. We’ll certainly be watching.
