If you find yourself impatiently awaiting news on the Westworld season 2 premiere date, the following news we have for you at CarterMatt is at least a start.
In a new post on Twitter, series star Evan Rachel Wood confirmed that the show is starting to move towards a launch in the spring of 2018. This is perhaps a little earlier than some out there may have guessed (including us), but it’s certainly welcome news. (Note that this has yet to be confirmed by HBO, but Wood seems as though she would be a good source.)
Granted, you also have to remember that “spring” could mean anything from March to early June, so it may not be coming that soon.
Westworld season 2 production has been underway for a little while now and even with a recent off-set injury by Zach McClarnon temporarily slowing down filming, things are moving along rather nicely. This show is well on its way to meeting some of the hype established by the first season, which generated a great deal of awards-show buzz and also pop-culture clout. It’s the sort of show that HBO needs at the moment given that Game of Thrones is ending and True Detective may not be coming back for a while. The Leftovers is already over and while some of their comedies are outstanding (like Insecure), mostly of their ratings are dependent (in part) on the show that comes on before. Oh, and we should comment that Veep is also ending at the end of its coming season. This is a rough time to be HBO given that their network is losing a lot of their heavy hitters.
Westworld season 2 will hopefully turn into Westworld season 3, even if it’s a little too early to say that for sure. The show does generate big ratings and this is what matters more to the network than anything else. A spring premiere would enable them to try to seize the market after the end of The Walking Dead, which tends to be over around the end of April. That would be the ideal time in which to get things going.
