Season 2 premiere of the critically acclaimed, smash-hit HBO drama series – a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin, exploring a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged… or destroyed.
Winner of five 2017 Primetime Emmy® Awards and nominated for a total of 22 Emmys®, Westworld is a sophisticated, highly imaginative drama series that elevates the concept of adventure and thrill-seeking to a new and ultimately dangerous level. In the futuristic fantasy park known as Westworld, a group of android “hosts” deviate from their programmers’ carefully planned scripts in a disturbing pattern of aberrant behavior that culminates in a violent wholesale rebellion by the end of Season 1.
In Season 2, the fruits of that uprising, and a series of questions about many of the hosts and humans who co-exist and clash in Westworld and beyond, will be revealed. With returning cast members including Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright and James Marsden, Westworld was inspired by the 1973 motion picture written and directed by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park), and was created for television by EPs Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight) and Lisa Joy (Pushing Daisies, Burn Notice). S2 EPs include J.J. Abrams, Roberto Patino, Athena Wickham, Richard J. Lewis, and Ben Stephenson.
