Season two of HBO’s Westworld just kicked off a couple of weeks back, but fans already have a new season to look forward to sometime down the road.
The network has officially ordered season three of the series, which is created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, just two episodes into season two.
President of HBO programming Casey Bloys made the announcement, saying:
“It’s been an extraordinary pleasure to work with the exceptionally talented Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, as well as their gifted cast and crew. From the inspired storytelling to the incredible visuals, we are so excited to see where the next chapter will take us.”
The show, which is described as a “dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the birth of a new form of life on Earth,” is based on the 1973 movie of the same name written and directed by Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton and starring Yul Brynner.
In addition to creating and executive producing the series, Nolan and Joy handle showrunner duties and have written and directed episodes. J.J. Abrams, Richard J. Lewis, Roberto Patino, Athena Wickham, and Ben Stephenson are also executive producers.
