'Westworld' Season 2 Won't Air Until 2018

Fans of the HBO show will have to be patient.

HBO officially confirmed Westworld's return with a first look at Comic-Con (opens in new tab) – but Season 2 won't be hitting our screens until Spring 2018, according to Screen Rant (opens in new tab).

Season 2 of the hit sci-fi drama series is already in production, and we've been given teasers about who's returning to the park, and who will be entering for the first time.

It was recently revealed that Jimmi Simpson – aka Young William, aka The Man in Black – will be coming back to answer some of those as-yet-unanswered questions (opens in new tab).

"There [are] a few more questions that they're gonna answer for us as far as exactly how that transition occurred and what it felt like to him and other people," Jimmi explained.

In equally great news, Luke Hemsworth is also set to return (opens in new tab) for Season 2 as MIA Head of Security, Ashley Stubbs.

Stubbs has been mysteriously missing from Westworld after a run-in with park warriors, but it looks like he might be making a comeback. Perhaps Elsie will too?

But if you don't want any clues as to what Westworld has in store for characters old and new, then you might want to stay off Reddit (opens in new tab), according to the show's co-creator Lisa Joy.
