HBO Reveals Brand New Westworld Season 2 Poster & Images
On Monday, we were talking about what Westworld season two’s working title might mean for where the show is headed. Today, we’re wondering if this robot vulture represents the Man in Black (Ed Harris), or fed on his carcass. Okay, not literally, as HBO has released new images from the first two episodes of the new season, and the Man in Black is prominently featured (if injured, after getting shot in last season’s finale).
Creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy recently had this to say about season two to Entertainment Weekly: “If the first season was a journey inward, this is a journey outward. This is a search for what is else is beyond the park, and what else is in the park. Are there more parks? How big is the park? What’s beyond the park? We think of our seasons as discrete components in the series, to the point where we’ve named our seasons. The first season was called ‘The Maze.’ The second season is called ‘The Door.’”
Now that we’ve had a look at some of the images from the first two episodes, we can say with just a smidgeon of certainty that things will be starting off at full speed. When last we left our heroes (the robot hosts) and villains (the humans), there had been an robot uprising, sentience was blooming in the built-brains of hosts left and right, and the park’s creator, Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) was dead.
Season two could go in so many directions—keep in mind that there are other parks within the mega-complex, meaning that Westworld is not alone. Season one alluded to a Samurai world, and the park’s website indicates up to five others. Delos Destinations also says that other parks are “currently not accepting reservations.”
Check out the new Westworld season 2 images below, with the season beginning on April 22 on HBO. Your stars are Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Ed Harris, Tessa Thompson, and James Marsden.
