HBO Confirms Deals in Place for Potential Future Seasons of Westworld!

Westworld 32

While chatting up HBO shows at the TCA summer press tour, HBO’s programming head Casey Bloys dropped an interesting tidbit that’s very reassuring for fans of Westworld: the show’s creators- Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy– already have deals in place with HBO for potential fourth and fifth seasons. The twisty show and its creators have in the past teased that they may not necessarily be in for a long run, so this is good for news for fans hungry for more exploration of Delos Destinations’ many parks.

This news is extra reassuring since Nolan and Joy have a new deal with Amazon, announced back in April. Bloys says the Amazon deal won’t affect the future of Westworld. “They are 100 percent hands on,” he told the TCA crowd. “We have deals with them for a potential fourth and fifth season. So the deal with them [at Amazon] is for, I believe, everything but ‘Westworld.’ And they’re very committed to ‘Westworld.’ So I’m not worried about losing their focus, they don’t lose focus.”

While Westworld could technically go on without Nolan or Joy, losing original showrunners is often devastating; when we’re talking about a show with such a distinct creative vision like this one, Nolan or Joy departing could be a death knell.

As for season 3, there is no official premiere date for  it, but Bloys confirmed that it will drop in the first half of 2020.
