HBO Prioritizes 'Westworld' Over 'True Detective'? 'True Detective' Season 3 And 'Westworld' Season 2 To Air In 2018?
There is lack of updates on HBO's hit original series, "True Detective." Fans have since been concerned about the true status of the show as it seems that the network is putting all its focus on another series original, "Westworld." As HBO executives recently spoke about "Westworld" season 2 premiering in 2018, fans might still wait for a later date before they see "True Detective" season 3.
HBO has been successful in creating original series like "True Detective," "Game of Thrones" and the recently concluded "Westworld." The last started off decently with 3.3 million viewers on its first episode. Initially, observers were criticizing the show which was revealed to have used the same budget as "Game of Thrones" yet attracted only a fair number of viewers. Yet as it went on with its next episodes, "Westworld" managed to gather 12 million accumulative viewers per episode. Reports are then claiming that "Westworld" is HBO's new flagship show since "Game of Thrones" is already about to end.
The latest original series of HBO overtook the record of "True Detective" of being the most viewed freshman season which jotted down 11.9 million viewers per episode back in 2014. Following this, fans are speculating that the delay of "True Detective" season 3 production could possibly be blamed on HBO's decision of prioritizing "Westworld."
"Westworld" was already announced for its second season but HBO head Casey Bloys recently mentioned that the western drama will not be back until 2018. Fans of "True Detective" then feel disappointed as the crime drama is once again pushed back to a later date which enthusiasts are already expecting to return in 2017.
Fans might still want to be hopeful though as HBO has not yet talked about possible cancelation of one of its most successful original series. The executives themselves are also expecting for positive updates from the show's new creative team as Nic Pizzolatto is currently busy with another project.
