Following the show’s recent season-two premiere, HBO has renewed the Emmy-winning drama series Westworld for a third season. This was announced today by Casey Bloys, president, HBO Programming.
“It’s been an extraordinary pleasure to work with the exceptionally talented Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, as well as their gifted cast and crew,” noted Bloys. “From the inspired storytelling to the incredible visuals, we are so excited to see where the next chapter will take us.”
In Asia, Westworld returned for its ten-episode second season on Monday, April 23. A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the birth of a new form of life on Earth, the show was created for television by Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy, who are also executive producers. The show debuted on HBO in October 2016 to become the network’s most-watched freshman series ever.
Time called Westworld “one of the biggest shows on earth,” while Entertainment Weekly hailed the show as “brilliant” and “enthralling.” Newsday termed it “explosive,” “smart” and “engaging,” while Salon cited the “outstanding performances” and the Hollywood Reporter called the series “thrilling” and “massively entertaining.”
