'Westworld' Season Two: Premiere Date Revealed & Trailer Aired In Super Bowl Ad

  • Westworld release season 2 teaser ahead of full trailer at the Super Bowl

HBO has released a new trailer for the second season of futuristic thriller Westworld that gives us a peek at what's in store. In a world that's become inundated by the virtual, escape the screen and take hold of a freedom you can physically touch.

"But this world is a lie", she says as the footage changes to fighting and robotic bulls pitted against humans. This world deserves to die because this is your world. Behind the whole thing is a piano cover to Kanye West's "Runaway" - enough to sell us alone.

"From the ashes, build a new world", she finishes. There are a couple of glitchy posters that hint at a luscious, green world, which we can assume is either Samurai World or Medieval World, but that's about it. A world where dreams come true.

The second season of Westworld lands April 22 internationally, and it's shaping up to be a bloody, bruised battle on all sides.

My first thought about the two figures in the center of this frame is that we're looking at the bandit Hector Escaton (Rodrigo Santoro) and a longer-haired host greeter Angela (Talulah Riley, who's been upped to a series regular in season 2).

The trailer then ramps up the action and shows a barrage of stunning imagery from the upcoming season.

Conveniently, Now TV also currently has the first season of Westworld available to stream, so it's also ideal if you missed it the first time around, or just want to refresh your memory of the labyrinthine plotting.

Those are the biggest revelations from the new trailer, and I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments if you spotted anything else that's worth discussing. The first trailer for season two appears to pick up exactly where the first season left us, in turmoil.

Redditor Askin 1 (via Nerdist) decoded various clues in the Westworld Super Bowl trailer and found they lead to the site for Delos Destinations. That doesn't mean there's no way for the actor to return - as the same character or an android replacement - but so far both Hopkins and HBO have stayed silent. Given the revelation of four parks in addition to Westworld and "Samurai World", one can certainly hope the HBO adaptation will follow in the heels of its predecessor.
