If you haven't been keeping up with the fact that "Westworld" is the series to be watching right now, then you need to brush up on your entertainment as soon as possible. Not only is it the series to be looking out for (and literally keeping an eye on), but it seems like it's still going to be racking up quite a fairly large amount of viewers for at least a couple years still to come. The HBO hit has not only knocked the viewers off their feet, but it also seems to have taken the entire television industry by surprise by offering a refreshing take on an old concept.

'Westworld' will get a third season

It comes as no surprise that HBO has officially confirmed that "Westworld" will be renewed for its third season, even with the show only being two episodes into its second season.

While this news has left fans reeling and clenching their teeth in anticipation of the whirlwind episodes, we don't quite know when the third season of the loved series will be released, as showrunners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan have been known to take their time in writing the complex storylines and characters.

If you're not yet familiar with the premise of the series, "Westworld" focuses on a completely futuristic, old-west-style theme park that is run by intelligent robots known to be called hosts. While these hosts were initially created for the complete and utter enjoyment of the human visitors, certain hosts begin to develop self-awareness and, in turn, rebel against their human creators to wreak havoc. Predictably, this obviously casts a spell for disaster as what truly can you do when your robot creations realize you've been using them like, well, dolls.

The impressive and rather mind-boggling series racked up an impressive 3.3 million viewers with its initial Season 2 [VIDEO]premiere and the numbers are only expected to rise as the cast promise a series packed with easter eggs and drama that's only going to intensify with time.

HBO sets high expectations

With such a talented cast with names such as Anthony Hopkins, Evan Rachel Wood, and Thandie Newton, it's fairly safe to say that HBO has made the right decision is pushing the series to go forward.

In a report by The Hollywood Reporter, HBO programming president Casey Bloys apparently released a statement noting her excitement for the series to continue, saying: "It’s been an extraordinary pleasure to work with the exceptionally talented Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, as well as their gifted cast and crew. From the inspired storytelling to the incredible visuals, we are so excited to see where the next chapter will take us.”

Rightfully so, too, as HBO has a lot riding on the series, which has been reported to have a per-episode budget of up to $10 million. These figures also according to The Hollywood Reporter.

We don't exactly know what Season [VIDEO]2 still holds for us, so we can't even begin to entertain what Season 3 of the television series may entail, but if there's one thing we can be sure of, it's that we're in for a whole lot more mysteries to be uncovered.
