Additionally, Deadline reports that Westworld Season 1 averaged 12 million viewers for all platforms for its first season, passing Game of Thrones and others to set a new HBO record.

It should come as no surprise, then, that a second seasons is on the way. The "mysterious and exciting" Season 2 is slated for late 2017 or 2018. A major theme for Season 2 will be "chaos," while we'll also learn more about Dr. Ford's true intentions with his new narrative.
