Description: A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged. HBO.com

Season End Status: According to Deadline Hollywood, this series has averaged 12 million viewers across all platforms making it the most watched first season among all of HBO’s original shows.  Westworld has trended up in the ratings for most of its first season (more on that at this link), something which Game of Thrones did as well in its freshman year.  That show continued to trend up each season and ended this last year as HBO’s most-watched of all-time.  So Westworld is definitely off to a good start in its first season with the ratings moving upwards and fans and critics giving the show high marks.  Its second season will air in 2018 due to the time required for the show’s elaborate production.
