at .

After months of speculation and lots of exciting news about sex scenes and a (non-related) stop in production, we have news about Westworld!

Westworld will be coming our way in October.


Westworld 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.

Westworld is based on the 1973 classic movie starring Yul Brynner written by Michael Crichton.

The series stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and Thandie Newton.

We posted a teaser of it previously. Here's a look!

The ten-episode, half-hour comedy, Divorce, will also be arriving in the fall.

The series stars stars Sarah Jessica Parker as Frances, a woman who suddenly begins to reassess her life and her marriage, and finds that making a clean break and a fresh start is harder than she thought.

The show also stars Thomas Haden Church, Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam, Tracy Letts, Sterling Jerins and Charlie Kilgore.

HBO Insecure

The eight-episode, half-hour comedy series Insecure, starring Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis and Lisa Joyce, looks at the friendship of two black women and their uncomfortable experiences and racy tribulations.

And, finally, there's High Maintenance, another half-hour comedy, this one six episodes.

HBO High Maintenance

High Maintenance follows a Brooklyn pot dealer who delivers to clients with neuroses as diverse as the city.

The show stars Ben Sinclair as “The Guy,” a friendly pot dealer whose clients include an eccentric group of characters, revealing the dynamics of their lives.

From the unexpected and offbeat to the predictable and mundane, the series provides a glimpse into the daily routines of the customers and how they light things up.

That's quite a diverse offering coming our way from HBO in the fall. Which one piques your interest?
