Co-creator Lisa Joy told CNA Lifestyle that no other city is quite like Singapore. “We needed to get on a plane and travel 19 hours (to Singapore) because there’s nowhere else like this,” said Joy. “It’s the ways in which nature entangle with modernity here.”

As reported by CNA Lifestyle, many stars from Westworld have been seen in Singapore since July 1, including Evan Rachel Wood, Aaron Paul, Thandie Newton, and Jeffrey Wright.

The cast went on location to film at many local spots, including Chinatown’s Smith Street, Orchard Road, the National Gallery, Esplanade Park, SOTA (School of The Arts), Helix Bridge, and more. They used a mix of local and international crew on set while filming.

HBO hasn’t actually released a date for the much-anticipated premiere, but it probably won’t be returning this year. A 2020 date is more likely, given that HBO’s programming chief Casey Bloys told The Wrap that production on the show would begin in March of this year. They probably won’t rush to have it completed by this year, so don’t get your hopes up for a 2019 premiere date.

Season 3 will be different than the first two seasons

Co-creator Lisa Joy also spoke to The Wrap about season three and plans surrounding it. It will be a completely different journey for the characters. “It was always the plan to explore the real world and we have Dolores there, Bernard’s there and a creature that is certainly inhabiting [Charlotte] Hale’s body is there,” explained Joy.

“So we’ll come to know more of who ‘Hale’ is. There are three Hosts out in the world and next season will really be an exploration of what they find and who they become.”

Some fans may find it hard to wait for season three. Fortunately, they can get their fix for all thing Westworld with an HBO subscription. Episodes and seasons can also be purchased through Amazon Prime. Old episodes will have to do until the third season premieres in what looks like 2020. Fortunately, it will all be worth it.
