Western-set sci-fi horror 'Westworld' is coming back for a second series. The joint production between Sky and HBO has been a hit with the critics. It's based on Michael Crichton's 1973 film of the same name.

The show's co-creators were joyful at the news. "We're thrilled that the saga of 'Westworld' will continue for another season," Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy said in a statement.

"During the lengthy journey to the screen, our incredibly talented actors, staff and crew became a family, and we look forward to the privilege of continuing this experience with them."

However, the 10-episode series might not be back until 2018, according to HBO's programming president. Why? It takes so long to make.

"'Westworld' is such a big, ambitious show," Casey Bloys said in a recent interview. "I don't know if it will be fall of 2017 or into '18.

"That will depend as we get up and running. With "Westworld', because the production is such a big endeavour, I don't exactly know when [it will premiere] yet." He said he couldn't speculate, though it would be "probably more like '18."

So there you have it. The robot cowboys will return to Sky Atlantic, but we'll have to wait a while.
