With all the production delays, it was unclear when ‘Westworld‘ was going to premiere on HBO but now we’ve learned that the studio is set to bring the series to the small screen this Fall! For those who have been as eager as I have to check out the series, this is great news instead of the 2017 release date that it was starting to look like we’d see. With the length of the delay that had come up, there was even worry that it might never get picked back up.

Thankfully production not only started back up last month but also had Lili Simmons (‘Bone Tomahawk’,’Banshee’) join the cast.
While an exact day for the premiere hasn’t been announced, HBO let us know through this pretty subtle but creepy animated gif on Twitter:

Generally, you see an image like that and you would think that someone is dead but in a world populated with synthetic beings it makes me wonder if we’re seeing a corpse here or more likely one of the mechanical lifeforms that will be in the series. Either way, it has raised the bar on the creepy level which isn’t where I was expecting the series to go with.
