Not yet, but hopefully we get an announcement soon.
At a guess, probably September or October.
Definitely after Game of Thrones is done.
Showtime usually debuts their new shows with their hits, so they can get the part of their biggest audience. I think HBO plays a different game, since the first season of Westworld didn't air with Game of Thrones.
But I agree it might air right after GoT.
I believe September/October they'll premiere their Jordan Peele & JJ Abrams horror drama, Lovecraft Country.
The sooner the better.
It's tricky working out HBO's scheduling. I hadn't factored Lovecraft Country but I agree, that sounds more like something that'd air in September or October. Perhaps July for Watchmen?
I thought JJ Abrams's Demimonde would premire this year too, but it doesn't even have a cast yet. But Lovecraft Country will most likely premiere this year. So I guess it's Game of Thrones, then Watchmen, then Lovecraft.
But 2019 it's going to be a fantastic year for HBO anyway: The final seasons of Game of Thrones, Veep and The Deuce. The anticipated return of the highly acclaimed True Detective and Big Little Lies. The premiere of new shows like Watchmen and Lovecraft Country (which sounds big), and Euphoria, which is produced by A24, so I'm 100% in. Not to mention their other gems like Insecure, High Maintenance, Curb Your Enthusiasm or Random Act of Flyness.
Unfortunately there probably won't be any Westworld this year. But they have a hell of a year.
Not counting the finale of GoT, only Watchmen looks interesting. But it's Lindelof and one of lessons of life - don't expect anything good from Lindelof.
I see you never watched Lost or The Leftovers. You should at least watch the latter.
Lindelof is (or at least can be at times) a truly great TV writer. He is not a good film writer.
I'm one of the many, many people who despise the end of Lost. I actually dislike the two last seasons of it. And I refused to watch The Leftovers for years because of that.
But after so much critical acclaim coming from everywhere, I decided to give it a try. And now Lindelof is one of the main reasons I'm excited about this. The HBO and Lindelof partnership gives me a lot of hope.
Did anyone back in the 80s looked at Watchmen and say “Boy! That would be a great franchise to milk out on!”? For Dr. Manhattan’s sake, they even made fun of franchising in the friggin’ story.
