The series garnered 3.3 million viewers on its first day, between live, rerun broadcasts and streaming.
According to HBO programming president Casey Bloys, the show is now averaging nearly 12 million viewers per episode. However, Bloys said that we will likely not see new episodes of Westworld until 2018.
Rachel Wood, said at the time: “It’s absolutely very rough. I don’t like gratuitous violence against women at all, but I would wait for the context in which it’s being used. As the show progresses, the way it’s being used is very much a commentary and a look at our humanity and why we find these things entertaining and why this is an epidemic, and flipping it on its head.
She added: “The roles for the women on this show are going to be very revolutionary. It’s very gender-neutral. I would ask, as somebody who is an advocate against any kind of abuse or violence and is outspoken about it, to give it a chance and wait to see where it’s going. I think it will surprise people.”
