THE HBO FAMILY’S NEXT PRODIGY FINALLY HAS A DUE DATE
If you’ve been anxiously awaiting HBO’s highly hyped, often-delayed sci-fi/western/fantasy show Westworld, you finally have a date you can circle on your calendar.
Sunday, October 2nd of this year.
Based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie about an American themed amusement park of androids that goes haywire (think Jurassic Park but with AI instead of dinosaurs), the show’s premier has been bounced around more than a rubber ball at a dodge ball convention. Westworld’s originally scheduled 2015 debut was moved to 2016 and then 2017 after a brief halt in production to accommodate the writing staff. But fans can rest assured, the October date appear set in stone.
Westworld has plenty of big names attached to it. Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and Thandie Newton are a few of the stars who’ll be working in front of the camera while the likes of J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan are players behind it. Westworld season one will run ten episodes in length starting October 2nd.
