Westworld, a show that we originally thought would be on the air in 2015 and then heard wouldn’t appear until 2017, will actually appear this year.

Westworld had stopped production earlier this year to finish up the scripts and HBO claimed it didn’t want to rush the show. Westworld, based on the movie, will start its 10-episode first season in fall of 2016, HBO announced.


And if you’re wondering how this epically long journey from announcement to airing happened, writer and executive producer JonathanNolan told us that they did not expect all the challenges a scifi western would bring.

But that’s all in the past. And Westworld is coming to our screens this year. Probably. So we’re being told.
