HBO has revealed a trailer confirming the 2017 return of some of its most popular titles, but Westworld isn’t one of them.
Game of Thrones, Girls, Ballers, Veep, Vice Principals, Silicon Valley, The Leftovers, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Vice, Insecure, Divorce and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, will be gracing our screens once again in 2017.
While HBO confirmed the return of some of its most highly anticipated titles for the coming year, the popular Westworld series – which only recently concluded it’s first season – was not among HBO’s 2017 list.
In an interview with Variety, creators of HBO’s newest hit series, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, revealed why Westworld wouldn’t see a return until 2018.
“We won’t be on the air until 2018. We started that conversation with the network when were shooting Episode 2 and we realized the complexity of trying to write and produce the show at the same time. We both work in the movie business as well, and in the movie business the best that you can possibly hope for with a film franchise is to turn around another installment in two or three years. So really on that schedule, we’re doing great.”
While we have a long wait before we see the return of Westworld , HBO’s brand-new 2017 titles might just make you forget all about it.
Big Little Lies, The Young Pope, The Deuce, Room 104, and Crashing, will make their way to television screens next year; as well as films The Wizard of Lies, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Beware the Slenderman, and Rock and a Hard Place.
