When Does 'Westworld' Season 2 Premiere? Creators Explain the Long Wait!
The first season of Westworld just ended and fans are probably wondering when they can expect a second season of the hit HBO series.
Creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have opened up about where they are at in the planning stages for new episodes and why fans will have to wait over a year for the new season.
“We’ve started working on scripts and outlines. It’s looking good. It’s looking very ambitious. There’s some surprises and bits of it that you won’t see coming. I’m having fun,” Lisa said in an interview with Variety.

“It’s an ambitious project, and HBO has encouraged us to take the time and resources that we need to work on each stage of that,” Jonathan added. “I love television. One of the fun things about television is that sometimes you find yourself in this place where you have to wear all these hats at once. You have to write, shoot, and cut simultaneously. We wanted to in the second season spend some more time writing, then switch gears into production, then cut. So we’re not going to follow the annual year-on-year tradition of television. Television’s changing. And the ambition of the project is such that we’re going to take our time to get the second season right.”
“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,” Jonathan added. “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.”
