The Westworld tie-in site is teasing an out of control park full of trapped guests in the upcoming second season of the show. The sci-fi western thriller created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy for HBO ended its cryptic and puzzling first season last year with a bang leaving audiences hanging after the android hosts took control of the park in the finale which put true meaning to "These violent delights have violent ends".
The second season will not be hitting our screens until 2018, but we do already know that many recurring cast members from season one like Talulah Riley, who played the host Angela, and Louis Herthum, who played Delores' (Evan Rachel Wood) first father Peter Abernathy, being bumped up to season regulars. We also know that the second season is unlikely to feature mutiple timelines like the first and won't not pick up right where the first season left off, with the creators promising it's twice as ambitious as the first season - which is a lot to live up to considering the first season broke records for HBO.
Now we are getting another tease for the new season, this time through the Westworld tie-in site DiscoverWestworld.com, which has been taken over by a glitchy gif. The Westworld subreddit has a closer look at this gif that teases something has gone wrong in the park and that an "unknown user" needs help. Here is a look at the gif found on the website:
Based on last season's finale and this chilling new teaser, things are not looking good for the guests staying at Westworld. When Delores pulled the trigger on creator Robert Forbes (Anthony Hopkins) during his speech and became the person she was meant to be, Forbes' army of reprogrammed hosts emerged from the forest and began firing on the unsuspecting visitors causing a possible massacre in the park, so it's no surprise that this early teaser is indicating that there will be human casualties after the hosts go rogue.
The teaser definitely gives hints about the possible plot for next season. One main focus of the second year could be the hosts going totally haywire and hunting down the remaining humans staying at the park - especially interesting considering one of the main themes of the first season was the idea of whether or not true humanity could exist in the hosts. With filming starting very soon, we're sure to begin hearing fresh, exciting details.
