'Westworld' Season 2 Premiere Pushed Until Every Episode Written

This is what the 'Westworld' theme sounds like: Bah nu nuh na nah nunuh, nun nunnun na na na na. Nu na Na Na na NAA. HBO

Mid-production Westworld shut down for two months so executive producers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy could chew over the last four episodes with their writers. They still hit a 2016 premiere date.

Now it looks like similar delays will be baked into the production schedule until the eventual Westworld Season 2 release date. Rather than committing to a 2017 premiere and following the yearly release calendar (to which even immense productions like Game of Thrones adhere), Westworld Season 2 is planned for 2018 instead.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Nolan and Joy “want to have all 10 episodes written before starting filming.”

So will Samurai/Shogun World play heavily into Season 2? Will Dr. Robert Ford return as a human or a robot? It’s just possible that, for now, no one knows for sure.
