Westworld Won't Be Back Until 2020

Delos is hard at work getting Westworld ready for us again

Rachel Paige

For those wondering when we'll be allowed back into both the show Westworld and the park Westworld, we're still going to have to wait another year. HBO has announced that the show won't return until 2020.

This comes as no surprise, but it's still a blow for anyone hoping to check in on Bernard and Co. sometime in the near future. Considering it took roughly three years to get the first season of Westworld off the ground, and then there was a year and a half gap between Seasons 1 and 2, the show is clearly following a long hiatus pattern. Also, it was always assumed that the show wouldn't return in 2019, as this year is all about the final season of Game of Thronesand securing as many Emmy nominations for the final season of Game of Thrones as possible. It was always unlikely that Dolores would be going up against Daenerys in any category.

Westworld: Everything We Know About Season 3

While we've got at least a dozen months to wait for new episodes, the show is clearly starting to ramp up production. It was previously announced that Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul is joining the cast, and while his character is top secret, he told The Wrap that he's going to bring "excitement, danger, suspense [and] honesty" to Westworld. Also joining the cast is Lena Waithe and no, nothing is known about her character, either.

All I can say is... it's lit.

Season 2 saw Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) break out of the park and into the real world, so there's a possibility that Paul and Waithe won't even have to put on western garb, or suit up in lab coats to work in the Delos facility. We'll find out next year.
