Expect to go to bed late on April 22 -- the "Westworld" Season 2 premiere is going to be a long one.
The show's co-creators, Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, are busy promoting their HBO drama's sophomore season, and they recently teased multiple episodes that extend beyond 60 minutes, starting with the premiere. Like last year's inaugural episode, the first of Season 2 will give us plenty of bang for our buck. Joy and Nolan told EW the first episode of "Westworld" Season 2 will surpass 70 minutes in length.
Later in the season, we'll get to see some more supersized episodes. The co-creators named Episode 4 as another that will last more than an hour. Finally, to end the season, they'll give us an episode that they say is "a bit of an epic" and keeps "going and going." That's also consistent with Season 1, which concluded with 90-plus-minute finale.
Those are all good things to hear. The show has a lot of ground to cover, especially after its explosive developments at the end of the first season. We'll be ready to settle in for some long ones.
"Westworld" returns April 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
