HBO is renewing three freshman series.

Westworld, Divorce and Insecure will all be returning for a second season, the premium cable network announced on Monday.

"I am thrilled to announce the pickup of our three fall series, all of which have distinctive, original voices," HBO's programming president Casey Bloys said in a press release. "Critics and viewers alike have welcomed Westworld and Insecure, as well as the return of Sarah Jessica Parker to the network after 12 years with Divorce."

According to HBO, Westworld is currently drawing in an average of 11.7 million viewers each week, which topples the audiences that Game of Thrones and True Detective earned during their first seasons.

Additionally, the network's two new comedies, Divorce and Insecure, are averaging 4.4 million and 3.2 million, respectively, which is on par with HBO's most successful half-hour series like Veep and Girls.

ET recently spoke with Parker ahead of Divorce's premiere in September, and the 51-year-old actress dished that she would be open to a Sex and the City reunion on season two of Divorce.

"I don't think anybody would be opposed to any idea if it felt right for the part and if the actor felt like they wanted to do it," Parker said of welcoming her SATC co-stars -- Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon -- on as potential guest stars.

“I would entertain any of those ideas,” Parker says, adding that she and her team -- creator Sharon Horgan and showrunner Paul Simms -- have already started outlining stories for season two.

ET also caught up with Parker and Matthew Broderick at the premiere of Divorce in October, where the 54-year-old Ferris Bueller's Day Off star dished on what it takes to be a good husband. Check out the video below to hear more.
