HBO’s sci-fi drama Westworld is finally on the schedule.
After months of delays, cast changes and a production hiatus, the ambitious series from showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy is now confirmed to air this fall. According to HBO, the season will consist of 10 episodes.
The cast includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright.
The set-up: Loosely based on the 1973 sci-fi film from Michael Crichton, Westworld is about a futuristic theme park where visitors can live out their dark fantasies with ultra-realistic android — until something, of course, goes wrong.
In addition to adding Westworld to its fall schedule, HBO also revealed the Sarah Jessica Parker comedy Divorce, the Issa Rae comedy Insecure, and web series turned comedy show High Maintenance will debut in the same time frame.
