It’s not just the parks that are getting bigger. Westworld Season 2 will super-size a number of its upcoming episodes beyond the usual hour running time, and the finale will go full-on Game of Thrones with its length.
It seemed too crazy that Westworld might spoil Season 2 in one fell swoop – and with good reason. Despite some Reddit teasing, Westworld was never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you.
We’ve come a long way from Game of Thrones keeping battles offscreen, but Season 8 is going all out. New set reports indicate the HBO drama more than doubled its shooting time for fan-favorites like “Battle of the Bastards,” and is only getting started.
Game of Thrones has a million characters to service, so we weren’t surprised when Gendry’s grand return amounted to little. Thankfully, star Joe Dempsie now confirms that Robert Baratheon’s blacksmithing bastard will have a much more prominent role in the final season.
Not even a year from its premiere, and True Detective Season 3 already has a body count. Reports indicate director Jeremy Saulnier has stepped away after only a handful of episodes, and will be replaced by an Americans favorite.
The urgency of Game of Thrones’ final season will preclude significant characters, but it seems we can write off an entire family. An in-demand star confirms the eighth and final season will find no time to address his ultimate fate.
Super Bowl trailers and hexidecimal posters are great, but it’s high-time we had a full trailer for Westworld Season 2. Thankfully, HBO is here to oblige with an extended glimpse of all the robot uprising chaos and a look at the world(s?) beyond.
The Night King’s army made one familiar addition in Season 7, and Game of Thrones may donate even more fresh meat next year. New set photos seem to suggest the Army of the Dead has some powerful – albeit unwilling – allies near and dear to Daenerys’ heart.
