Westworld-e2

Second ‘Westworld’ Episode Released 2 Days Early

by Cate Lecuyer  |  10.07.2016

HBO released the second episode Westworld on Friday, two days before its scheduled release, as a strategy to avoid losing viewers to the second presidential debate set to air during the show’s regular timeslot of Sunday at 9 p.m.

The premiere episode drew about 3.3 million viewers—HBO’s largest series debut audience since True Detective nearly three years ago, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Episode two of Westworld is available to watch via HBO On Demand, HBO Go and HBO Now.

The network also posted the first episode on its website, available to non-subscribers for free.
