Hold onto your cowboy hats, y’all.

After some production delays and schedule shifts, HBO will finally air its high-profile new sci-fi series Westworld this fall.

The premium cable network made the announcement on Thursday. Also debuting in the fall will be new comedies Divorce, Insecure and High Maintenance.

The series Westworld is a re-imagining of the cult 1973 movie, starring Yul Brenner, about a futuristic, adult-themed amusement part in which guests can live out any kind of fantasy they want by interacting with programmed androids. When a system-wide malfunction occurs, however, the “robots” get out of control and start actually killing the guests, especially in the Wild, Wild West.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the show’s androids, played by cast members including James Marsden, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood and Thandie Newton, can be killed off and return with completely different personas, allowing actors to play many characters. The show also stars Anthony Hopkins, Ben Barnes and Jeffrey Wright.
