Westworld TV Series Ordered by HBO. Being no surprise with the level of stars attached, HBO has ordered Westworld to series before the pilot episode has even aired. The number of episodes that will comprise the first season is dependent upon how well the first few episodes preform ratings-wise e.g. HBO will then announce a full season order or an episode back-order. With J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan behind-the-scenes, this TV series inspired by Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi movie Westworld is poised to delivery a strong presentation. How good or how bad that presentation is remains to be seen.
