westworld season 2

The first season of Westworld was built as a puzzle box. The series never went out of its way to explain what you were looking at, demanding your patience as it slowly unrolled the necessary details to figure who was who, what was what, and when was when. Showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy kept it up until the final scenes of the season finale…before they finally unleashed hell.

That means that Westworld season 2 will be a more straightforward affair that lays its cards on the table, right? Ha. No. Even series star Ed Harris isn’t entirely sure what’s going on and he’s currently filming the damn thing.

Dunkirk Script

Christopher Nolan is no stranger to dialogue-heavy movies, mostly because his films like Inception and Interstellar require plenty of exposition in order for the audience to fully understand the complex sci-fi concepts at work. But when it comes to his World War II drama Dunkirk, the filmmaker relied on significantly less dialogue, instead letting tension and suspense fill the screen as the action sequences unfolded. In fact, Nolan once considered shooting the movie without a script at all. Read More »

Westworld Season 2

Season two of Westworld begins this July. The next chapter in Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy‘s series won’t pick up exactly where season one left off. There’s going to be a bit of a time jump, but of course, we’ll see the effects of what unfolded in the season one finale. According to Lisa Joy,  the stakes and scope are now going to “increase dramatically.”

Below, read what Joy and Nolan had to say about some of their plans for Westworld season 2.

westworld season 2 premiere title

Westworld has been enveloped in mystery since it first hit the airwaves on HBO last fall, and although most of Reddit and the Internet have guessed its many twists and turns, the show is going to keep it that way for Season 2.

We know very little of the second season of HBO’s genre hit, other than the fact that it’s happening. Release dates? Episode titles? Cast? Nothing. But co-creator and writer Jonathan Nolan have decided to appease thirsty Westworld fans with a tantalizing hint for the second season premiere. Naturally, frenzied theorizing ensues.

westworld season 2 will time jump

Westworld‘s overlapping timelines created an intriguing maze for viewers to solve in the first season, but showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy — who are in the midst of writing the next season that is set to air in 2018 — say that they don’t plan to revisit the multiple timeline format for the second season.

Instead, season 2 will see a time jump, and won’t take place immediately after the events of the season 1 finale. The big question is which direction that time jump will take.

Westworld free will

I found the first season of HBO’s Westworld to be intriguing and full of potential, but for me, it was ultimately more frustrating than satisfying. The concept, production design, and look of the show were all fantastic, but the way it purposefully withheld information as it attempted to preserve its big reveal rubbed me the wrong way. Thankfully, the showrunners appeared at this year’s PaleyFest and implied that their approach is going to be a little different in the second season. And in addition to those comments, they also revealed which host character was the first to exercise free will – and it may not be who you think. Read More »
