During the weekend's Television Critics Association press tour, HBO officially announced the premiere date for the highly anticipated sci-fi western epic Westworld! The network revealed that the upcoming collaborative effort between J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan (brother of Chris Nolan) will premiere on October 2nd at 9pm.
Following the reveal HBO also answered some questions regarding the criticism that the network is facing about the way the network has always depicted hardcore violence and sexual violence in its shows saying:
"We take [violence] very seriously and it’s not about the fetishization of those acts, rather, exploring the crime — hopefully with dignity and depth."
