Fans of the "Westworld" synthetic cowboy tales can finally rejoice as HBO Programming President Casey Bloys confirmed the show's renewal on its network. Everyone has been expecting for the series to air as it was announced way back November that season 2 is finally coming out soon. This renewal is somehow a welcome relief of HBO after a tough year that they had gone through.
It can be recalled that HBO suffered a big miss with the period drama "Vinyl" due to certain changes. Meanwhile, "Westworld" season 2 seemed to be a great, great luxury according to Bloys since it has fantastic and broad-based cultural ratings hit to build from. The series has definitely developed a fanatic among viewers who merely analyze every detail of the show, Varierty reported.
Further, Bloys also added that he gained insights about the show's many mysteries by following to the real-time detective work of the fans. He said that the level of detail that the series creators devote to thinking about the show was really impressive. He was definitely referring to the showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy for their mythology craft.
HBO creative team has also been gratified that "Westworld" has been an absolute success with an average of 11.7 million viewers per episode to date until it returns. Further, the programming president added that the series had exactly done what he has hoped for in terms of connecting to the audience and in raising the questions creators had set to raise.
On the other hand, "Westworld" season 2 cast, Luke Hemsworth, who plays Stubb on the series stated that audience might have to wait for 2018 before the next season will be aired. According to him, the creative team might need time to get the scripts done before they'll make the final announcement of its airing, Cinema Blend reported.
