There are only two episodes left until the season finale of HBO’s Westworld and for every answer that the show has given us, more questions come to light. Westworld star Jimmi Simpson opened up during an interview with Paste Magazine about the season finale and how working on this show is something that he is not only passion about but proud of.
“It’s a humdinger. The fact that this many people are seeing something I’m actually proud of, I’m beside myself.”
Simpson’s co-star Evan Rachel Wood has already warned fans that it will be an intense finale and is going to leave fans heartbroken.
“We’ve established that the farther out you go, the more intense the game gets, and man, were they not kidding because when we started getting the scripts after episodes it was like, ‘Whoa! OK!’ Not only are they dropping bombs left and right, but some of the days on set, I would be like, ‘Look, I’ve seen some stuff, and this is WILD.’”
It was just announced that the show was renewed for a second season, along with a cryptic teaser video but it wasn’t clear just when the show would be returning.
HBO’s president of programming Casey Bloys is hopefully that the show can return quickly, either in the fall of 2017 or possibly 2018.
“Westworld is such a big, ambitious show. I don’t know if it will be fall of 2017 or into ’18. That will depend as we get up and running. With Westworld, because the production is such a big endeavor, I don’t exactly know when [it will premiere] yet. I can’t speculate other than to say it’ll either be ’17 or ’18. Probably more like ’18 and half-hours [Insecure and Divorce] in ’17 but we’re a year away so let’s see how it goes.”
