The scope of HBO’s Westworld isn’t the only thing getting bigger in season 2. The episodes will be getting a bit larger as well.

Showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy tell EW that several episodes will be longer than the usual 60-minute cutoff, including an “epic” finale.

“The second season the premiere is a little over 70 minutes,” Nolan says. “The fourth episode — which is one of my favorites — is a little longer than an hour. And the finale is just going to keep going and going — it’s a bit of an epic.”

Critics have seen the first five episodes of the season and episode 4 is definitely the stand-out. It’s also the first of the series directed by Joy and features excellent performances by newcomer to the show Peter Mullan (who plays the park’s founding corporate overlord James Delos) and returning player Jimmi Simpson (who plays William, the younger incarnation of The Man in Black).

Westworld season 2 had its world premiere earlier this week, to largely rave reviews (here’s our take). After a long 16-month wait, the HBO sci-fi drama returns this Sunday.

HBO’s ambitious science-fiction thriller Westworld is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton novel of the same name. The series developed by Jonathan Nolan stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, and more top names.
