HBO announced it renewed three of its fall series for another season. Renewals for "Westworld," "Divorce" and "Insecure" are a welcome relief according to HBO's programming president, Casey Bloys. Previously, HBO suffered some losses after it missed on "Vinyl," due to internal changes.

"Westworld" is a remake of a science fiction based on a classic film written by Michael Crichton, but with a twist on its concept. It has gained a lot of positive reviews and reception from home viewers. A tweet from its account was posted on November 15, telling fans that it has been renewed for season 2.

In a report from EW, season 2 will be aired in 2018 and the team will have to map the plots and "write the scripts." Bloys said he was impressed with the "Westworld's" mystery and originality. In fact, all three shows have been impressive with their respective ratings.

When it comes to "Divorce," Bloys said it's a black comedy that is not for everybody, but "it is important to put it out there." "Divorce" just premiered in October and stars Thomas Haden Church and Sarah Jessica Park. It is a comedy show about a couple heading towards a divorce. Though the divorce is in itself something serious and painful, the producers were able to come up with a show that attacks divorce in a lighter and humorous way.

HBO's "Insecure," another comedy is also deemed as the network's "great building blocks" according to Variety. The show talks about issues on gender and race. According to Bloy as reported, "Insecure's" social interaction is strong.

"Westworld" is created by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, while "Divorce" is created by Sharon Horgan with Sarah Jessica Parker being an executive producer and "Insecure" is a collaborative efforts of Larry Wilmore and Issa Rae. "Insecure" is based partially on "Awkward Black Girl," a web series created by Rae.
