HBO has now confirmed that Westworld season 2 will premiere next spring. When the show arrived last fall, it gave HBO something that the network had been looking for over many years: a buzzed-about genre hit to match Game of Thrones. Since Thrones first premiered, various HBO shows have come and gone without becoming the network’s next big hit (see, for example, the period-music drama Vinyl). The hour-long, sci-fi/western hybrid that is Westworld finally bucked that trend and quickly earned a season 2 renewal. It even earned some Emmy nominations, including for Outstanding Drama, as the only HBO show in the category.
A remake of the 1973 film Westworld, which was written and directed by Michael Crichton, the HBO TV series hales from executive producers Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy and J.J. Abrams. Westworld season 1 told a compelling story about a robot-driven Western theme park, with a strong cast led by Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Tessa Thompson. A new trailer for season 2 debuted last week at San Diego Comic-Con, and now we know more about when we will be seeing more Westworld.
The second season of Westworld, which is currently in production, will air in the spring of 2018 – as confirmed by a PR overview of the premiere dates for all of the current HBO/Cinemax TV series. Westworld aired its first season in the fall of 2016 but since it wasn’t on this fall’s schedule, it was soon made clear that we wouldn’t be seeing any new episodes until next year.
