HBO has set a premiere date for their highly-anticipated sci-fi western drama ‘Westworld’. The series will debut Sunday, October 2nd at 9 PM (ET).
The one-hour drama series is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

There’s been a casting change behind the scenes on HBO’s Westworld: Actor Eion Bailey is leaving the sci-fi thriller a week after he was announced as joining the show. A scheduling conflict emerged before Bailey started, and now Ben Barnes (Chronicles of Narnia) is taking over the role of Logan.
The character is described as a “louche bachelor and veteran Westworld guest. His hedonistic romp through Westworld is equally motivated by self-indulgence and a desire to help his friend, William.”
Westworld stars James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Wright and Ed Harris in the series version of Michael Crichton’s techno-thriller about androids run amok at a fantasy-fulfilling theme park. The show is planned for 2016.
