Westworld season two will be "twice as ambitious" as its first. During an interview with Variety's Remote Controlled podcast, the creators of HBO's breakout sci-fi drama offered a few hints about what's to come.
"It’s an ambitious season,” said Jonah Nolan. “We always knew that we wanted the stakes and the scope to increase dramatically and that means the scale of production increases as well." And while he gave very little actual information away, he did reveal the one question fans should be asking as the new season approaches: "What's really happening in this place? We’ve hinted at that a little bit in the first season and we’re going to go a little deeper with that in the second season.”
Oh, and Anthony Hopkins' Ford is absolutely dead, but that doesn't mean he'll never be seen again. "I think there will be an opportunity to explore a little bit more of the backstory of how this park came to be, a little more of that story," Nolan hinted. "The character’s presence will be felt in that sense in terms of filling in a few more of the gaps about the early history of [Westworld].”
Why is it not 2018 yet?!
