Westworld's Stubbs explains why the show won't be back in 2017: "They want to go in with a clear plan"

Westworld is known for its myriad of plot twists and mysteries as much as it's known for its unique vision of the future. But if you're wondering about the mystery as to why Westworld won't be returning until 2018, Luke Hemsworth (aka Ashley Stubbs) has your answer:

"[The show's creators] are trying to get it right. They don’t want to go in doing what they were doing last time where they were under the cosh the whole time. They want to go in with a clear plan – A to Z and everything in between – at least have drafts in place," he told The Independent in a recent interview.

"They are very open to a point but they like to keep everything close to their chest. There is a lot of cloak and daggers and misdirection. And it’s great on their part," Hemsworth explained. And that misdirection isn't just toward fans; it turns out Hemsworth didn't know the big twist in the season one finale until it happened, just like the rest of us.

Personally, I find this all to be a satisfying explanation. It's not as if the show's writers and producers are just making things up as they go along, and a good puzzle needs time to be well thought out and planned. And if what Hemsworth says is anything to go by, everyone involved behind the scenes is more than capable of holding onto a good secret.
