Based on the 1973 film written by 'Jurassic Park' creator Michael Crichton, 'Westworld' has enjoyed strong support and the highest ratings the Network has received in years - but it doesn't come cheap, with a projected $100m budget for 10 episodes. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, HBO's programming president Casey Bloys has confirmed that the show will return with a further 10 episodes - although it won't likely hit screens until 2018.

With three more episodes to air in the current season, 'Westworld' is sure to have even more surprises in store for viewers - many of whom will be reeling from the big reveal in this week's episode. Hopefully the second series continues to shock and surprise.
