The Westworld Season Two Trailer Shows the Park's Dying Throes

HBO premiered the first trailer of season two of Westworld to a packed house at San Diego Comic-Con. And who could have guessed? The park—you know, the one where the robots who were being horrific abused by regular humans but then gained sentience and discovered how awful they’ve been treated—is in a lot of trouble.

There are bodies everywhere, but the most telling moments are definitely Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) shooting guests from a horse, William (Ed Harris) putting a black hat back on, and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) in a car with human(?) security guard (Luke Hemsworth).

We also only got one phrase out of showrunner Jonathan Nolan when he was asked during the panel about the possibility of seeing Samurai World in season two: “It doesn’t look like anything to me.”


Westworld returns in 2018.

Can we just put HBO and Netflix in charge of making ALL content for the “small” screen from here on out? AMC maybe too. IfI could have just those three services I’d be happy. (And yes, I know I can just select those three over the internet. If I can break the CW’s hold on my daughter and Animal Planet’s on my wife, that is.)
