We’re betting that Westworld Season 2 release date will be on October 1 next year, which will fall on a Sunday. The first season premiered on October 1, the finale of which was shown tonight.
Although HBO has confirmed the Season 2 comeback of sci-fi series, it has yet to announce its season premiere for next year. What we do know is that it took time for the network to renew Westworld for another season because the first one cost $100 million. Casey Bloys, HBO’s programming chief, said they had to first see a “very complete picture” of the ratings before deciding what to do next.
Westworld Season 2 release date and cast
Aside from Westworld Season 2 release date, the first major confirmation we have all been waiting for is who will rejoin as Westworld cast. Ed Harris (Man in Black) will be playing his character again for Season 2. Was that something the fans anticipated?
During an interview with BBC Radio 4, which was quoted by TV Line, Harris said he spoke with series co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy about reprising his role in the show. “They’re going to do in 10 more episodes, and I will be involved.”
This was quite a surprise because many thought that Harris’ interest and involvement in the series is only for a limited time, similar to Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson doing True Detective for only one season. Besides, Harris’ character appears as if he wanted to die already.
Thankfully, at least for Harris’ fans, we can now expect to see the actor when Westworld Season 2 release date is announced.
Westworld Season 2 story details
According to Nolan and Joy, whose interview with Entertainment Weekly was quoted by Den of Geek, Season 2 will give more details about how hosts work and how they get their powers. Nolan said one of the main focuses of the next season would be the hosts’ power source, as well as their construction.
He explained that the hosts are more biological than mechanical, although they don’t suffer from brain death as humans do. They cannot be killed the same way humans are killed. But, there are advantages and disadvantages to being a host and Westworld Season 2 release date will see to it that these are better detailed.
