Westworld Season 1 ended with a toast to the douchebags. Season 2 promises a new plan, where humans run away as fast as they can.
The just-released trailer for the HBO drama’s new instalment picks up from the intense, purifying violence of the first season’s finale. Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) narrates after the hosts’ uprising, as Maeve (Thandie Newton) sics a herd of cybernetic buffalo on hapless Westworld guards.
The Man in Black / William (Ed Harris) makes his return to the violent delights he so desperately wished to be real, along with the all-important Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright).
Also included: a featureless host, smashing a human into the very apparatus which gave it form. Meta.
The first episode arrives on Australian screens via Foxtel on April 23.
