“Westworld” might have just ended but it is still making quite the ruckus after leaving fans wanting for more. The American sci-fi television series just ended this month. The series was greatly acclaimed that it has reportedly set two new records for HBO.
On Dec. 4, HBO aired the final episode of “Westworld” Season 1, which was titled “The Bicameral Mind”. The season ender was one of the most anticipated episodes in the season that it actually garnered the highest rating out of all the episodes. The last episode raked in 2.2 million viewers, which was a 7 percent bump up from its previous week’s record, setting another new record. With the weekend replays, it has even seen a higher viewership rating as the figures soared to a total of 3.6 million.
In the meantime, it has also been reported that “Westworld” has also gained a high average of 12 million viewers on its first season. With this feat, it has beaten the record of “Game of Thrones” in terms of viewership records and has created another record for the series. The new series premiered with 1.98 million viewers and has continued to attract viewers with its western science fiction plot.
There is no doubt that the new HBO series deserves a second season. The first season of “Westworld” has revealed a lot of plot twists and after answering some questions raised more. After leaving viewers with a mind-boggling cliffhanger, fans can’t wait for the sequel to be released.
“Westworld” Season 2 has already been confirmed by HBO back in November 2016. The next installment will consist of 10 episodes just like the first season. But it seems like fans will have to sit out a year and go through a long wait as it has been reported that the second season is planned to be broadcasted in 2018.
