Breaking from the HBO offices earlier today – Westworld will indeed be getting a 3rd season! With only two episodes aired so far in the second season, the news comes as a huge relief for fans of the show. No matter where the park takes us this season, we can all sleep a little easier at night knowing that a 3rd season will follow. The news is not surprising, Westworld has been a fan favorite and created a buzz online since the first episode of Season 1. Season 2 premiered on April 22nd, the first two episodes have been nothing short of spectacular. I’m excited to see where the rest of Season 2 takes us, and where that might lead for Season 3!
