Westworld Could Be the Most Watched HBO Show Ever ***Slight spoilers***

The first season of WestWorld ended on December 4th and hooooOOOOLY HELL! THAT’S the way to end a season!

I could spend the next week talking about all the things I liked about the finale, but I’ll spare you the fanboy chatter, and instead deliver the good news.

According to Deadline, the finale is predicted to average at least 12 million viewers across all platforms when it’s all said and done. These are amazing numbers, especially when we compare them to the 2.5 million viewers averaged for the first season of Game of Thrones.

Disclaimer: G.O.T. premiered before HBO Go and HBO Now were viable viewing options. So it’s actually possible for Westworld to reach more people, but don’t let that take away from the fact that because of the show’s plot twists, acting, and SFX it deserves the praise and viewers it’s earned.

Westworld has already been renewed for a second season. Bad news for fans, though. The second season won’t arrive until 2018, leaving us in limbo wondering what the hell is going to happen next?


For those of you who haven’t gotten to see the finale or the show itself, get ready to be totally immersed in the plot and characters. The show starts slow, leaving the viewer with a feeling of confusion, forcing you to think hard when piecing the story together.

Be patient. The twists and surprises are well worth the time you’ll spend trying to figure things out. Before the finale, many fans complained that the plot twists detract from character development. I can’t wait to hear about what they think now that the dust has started to settle.

Evan Rachel Wood, who plays Dolores in the show, tweeted this just after the season finale ended:


With more than a year before we get to see Season 2, you can bet fans will be watching and re-watching the 10 episode first season of Westworld many times over.
