Westworld Season 2 date

Other than a brief teaser, we’ve had very little word on the second season of HBO’s hit sci-fi drama Westworld. While details of the highly-anticipated new season are still being kept under lock and key, we at least now know when we’ll be seeing Westworld season 2, thanks to star Evan Rachel Wood. Wood confirmed the Westworld season 2 premiere time on her Twitter account.

There’s roughly a week until Halloween and many people – myself included –  still haven’t gotten their costume situation in check. Thankfully, there are a number of fantastic characters from 2017’s pop culture offerings who make for relative cheap and easy costumes.

If you’re anything like me, the notion of stitching together a terrifying outfit from scratch can be a bit daunting. But, with a little chutzpah, and a whole bunch of inspiration taken from some of the best TV shows and movies released over the past year, I feel that we can all make this happen.

westworld season 2

The first season of Westworld was built as a puzzle box. The series never went out of its way to explain what you were looking at, demanding your patience as it slowly unrolled the necessary details to figure who was who, what was what, and when was when.

The 69th Primetime Emmy Awards were broadcast on CBS last night, handing out awards to HBO’s Big Little Lies and Veep, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Netflix’s Black Mirror, NBC’s This Is Us, FX’s Atlanta, and many more (get the full list of winners right here). But if you weren’t able to watch, we have the best moments from the show for your viewing pleasure.

Plus, we get to see Emmy come to life thanks to Ru Paul, and Stephen Colbert breaks down during his hosting gig and needs a little Westworld check-up.
