HBO have confirmed that their Westworld series, which was set to be finished in November, has stalled for two months.

The series will now pick up again in March, which is a significant set back.

However, in a statement, HBO say the series will still arrive in 2016 (it hasn’t had a release date so far in 2016 as it was originally set for 2015 (see the promo below)) and the reason for the halting is to ensure a the how is given the full treatment it deserves: “As we head into the final phase of production on ‘Westworld,’ we’ve made the decision to take a brief hiatus in order to get ahead of the writing,” said HBO.

The series is based on the 1973 film starring Yul Brynner in which a robot cowboy in a futuristic leisure park goes on a killing spree and stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden and Thandie Newton.

We are confident it will be worth the wait…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
