Are you ready to return to Westworld? You're in luck. The series isn't set to return until 2018 but HBO isn't wasting any time trying to get fans hyped for Westworld Season 2. They decided to bring the cast and creators to San Diego Comic-Con this year and they brought a little surprise with them; the first teaser for Westworld season 2.
Save for Game of Thrones, Westworld is the biggest show that HBO has going right now. And since Game of Thrones season 8 is set to conclude the beloved fantasy series next year, it's no wonder they wanted to bring Westworld season 2 to San Diego Comic-Con 2017 to try and secure some love for the future. It seems to be working. The teaser doesn't include a lot since the new season just started filming this month, but it does tease a little bit of what we can expect in the future. Given the way that Westworld Season 1 ended, there are a lot of directions they can go with it.
Dr. Ford Anthony Hopkins met his demise before things really hit the fan in Westworld. There is a gang of uncontrollable rogue robots led by Maeve (Thandie Newton) running loose in the park and wreaking havoc and we still have Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) to deal with. Not to mention Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and The Man in Black (Ed Harris) who had quite the big reveal at the end of Westworld season 1 as well. Plus, there was the reveal that there are other parks that deal with more than just a western theme. So there is a whole lot for HBO to pull from in Westworld season 2.
As one might expect, details on what we are going to see in Westworld season 2 have largely been kept under wraps. Co-creator and Executive Producer Jonathan Nolan has been hard at work writing the new season and it is a tough show to schedule and build out. That is why there is such a big gap between season 1 and season 2. It's better that HBO gets it right rather than rush it. That's for sure. We also know that the premiere episode is going to be titled Journey into Night, which was the title of Dr. Ford's new narrative that he was working on. How will that work into Westworld season 2? We have more questions than answers right now. But that's part of the fun with a show like this.
HBO has not yet set a Westworld season 2 premiere date yet, but it is going to
come in the fall of 2018. For now, you can check out the first teaser for Westworld season 2 for yourself below. Then maybe you will want to go back and rewatch the first season while you
wait impatiently for the new episodes to arrive.
