Well, that didn’t take long, now did it? Just a couple days after the premiere of its second episode of the second season, HBO has announced that Westworld will be returning for a third, Variety reports.
“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,” said Casey Bloys, president of HBO Programming. “From the inspired storytelling to the incredible visuals, we are so excited to see where the next chapter will take us.”
Westworld was created for the premium cable network by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and this latest season has the androids — also known as hosts — revolting against their human creators.
This renewal announcement comes after the premiere for the second season brought in 2.06 million viewers in the U.S. While this is down from the Season 1 finale back in December of 2016, it is up from the Season 1 premiere, which garnered 1.96 million viewers. Additionally the second episode this season took in 1.85 million viewers, which is also up from last year’s 1.5 million. Clearly, the show is on the right track.
Sadly, it doesn’t look like the show is on par with Game of Thrones‘ own second season (whose premiere had 3.86 million compared to 2.22 million from its first season), it still has an upward trajectory, which is the best thing you can ask for.
