One of the vital groundbreaking and thought-provoking TV collection of 2016 was HBO’s sci-fi drama Westworld, which was a maze wrapped within an enigma protocol wrapped within a colonial robotic. When Season 1 ended, the largest thriller then grew to become “When is Season 2 coming, and why is not it proper now?” Any particulars about Season 2’s release window have all been saved over the horizon, with nobody in a position to say something resembling particular till every thing was nearer to completion. However now, Westworld star Evan Rachel Wooden has revealed Season 2 will premiere in Spring 2018.
No, it is not a precise launch date, however Spring 2018 is at the least nearer to a remaining reality than we have had earlier than. We all know it is coming earlier within the yr now, which is an fascinating selection, since its darkish and gloomy environment go nicely with crisp fall evenings. The right climate pairing is a barely much less necessary issue to TV viewers, although, and so getting it within the spring works simply positive. Like proper on the finish of March, although. None of that “ready till June 17” enterprise.
There may be, in fact, a superb cause why Westworld Season 2 did not simply pop up a yr after its first season confirmed up. Equally to how the primary season additionally took a very long time to come back collectively, creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Pleasure and the remainder of the inventive workforce took their time with planning the story, figuring out how savvy audiences have been to how issues performed out in Season 1, and the purpose is to make one of the best set of world-expanding episodes doable, and never simply “one of the best set of episodes doable earlier than that pre-determined launch date.” However now it looks as if there’s at the least a end line in sight, simply nonetheless presumably fairly a methods away. (The recent production delays aren’t seemingly factoring into any general delays.)
Let’s all admire Evan Rachel Wood for providing up Westworld information the one method anybody can do it: with restricted phrases and an open ending.
Coupled with Sport of Thrones‘ roving schedule in its remaining two seasons, the nontraditional delay between Westworld Season 1 and the eventual Season 2 has made the anticipation of HBO’s status programming palpable, which remains to be a pleasant feeling to get on this age of TV over-saturation. (This superb, superb age.) And we’ll have months to maintain that anticipation going, too. This is hoping another drool-worthy trailer is on the best way within the nearer future.
Westworld Season 2 is lastly coming to HBO in Spring 2018, so set your watches that can at some point develop as much as be saloon-bots. (Expertise!) And Season 1 simply hit Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday, November 7, and selecting that one up will give followers some brand new extras and extra to look at. Head to our fall TV premiere schedule to see all the opposite new and returning exhibits coming earlier than 2018.
