HBO has officially announced that Westworld Season 3 is happening, after only two episodes of the highly anticipated second season have aired. Both of these renewals are not surprising. It turned out that the series is renewed for a third season.

The news comes on the heels of Episode 2's airing for the new season, which GameSpot's own Michael Rougeau said was far better and more fitting Season 2 premiere than the one fans actually got in his Westworld review. The show's second season barely started.

HBO programming president Casey Bloys released a statement about the season 3 renewal of "Westworld", 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". Its premiere episode gathered 2.1 million viewers during its 9 p.m. EDT timeslot. However, on the side of "Western" franchise enormous popularity of the first season.

The show revolves around a theme park from the future which is populated by high-tech robots that are called hosts. While these hosts were initially created for the complete and utter enjoyment of the human visitors, certain hosts begin to develop self-awareness and, in turn, rebel against their human creators to wreak havoc.

That first season explored several interweaving plots set across multiple timelines, guided by an ensemble cast that included Anthony Hopkins (Dr. Robert Ford), Jeffrey Wright (Arnold, Bernard), Ed Harris (the Man in Black), Evan Rachel Wood (Dolores Abernathy), Thandie Newton (Maeve Millay), James Marsden (Teddy Flood) and Jimmi Simpson (William).
