Sky is gearing up to premiere West:Word, a Westworld fan show slated to follow each episode of the series’ upcoming second season.

Filmed in front of a live studio audience, West:Word will see celebrity fans, series creators and cast members recap the latest episode with presenter Lauren Laverne on a replica set of the Mariposa Saloon. The 10-episode fan show will debut directly after the second season premiere of Westworld on April 23 at 9 p.m. exclusively on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV.

West:Word is produced by Znak & Co for Sky Atlantic. Danny Tipping, who is an EP on the Game of Thrones fan show Thronecast, is executive producing.

Natalka Znak, the president of Znak & Co, commented: “As any superfan knows, when an episode ends the real fun begins—unraveling character arcs, debating the slightest glance, hidden meanings and more. Danny and the team at Thronecast have turned watercooler chat into an art, and we’re really pleased to have Lauren leading us on this wild ride through Westworld.”
