Westworld season 2 will ‘mess with your mind’

March 27th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Westworld executive producer Roberto Patino has revealed some new details about the forthcoming second season.

Speaking at the PaleyFest event this past weekend, he said the story will mess with your mind by involving the metaphysical.

There will be a story, and it will f**k with the metaphysical at some point,” he said.

At the end of Season 1, it was suggested that Westworld was just one of the places that guests could visit, with another being Samurai World. Asked if there are other worlds in the show’s universe, showrunner Jonathan Nolan confirmed with a laugh: “That would be cool, wouldn’t it?

Also during the PaleyFest panel, Nolan confirmed that the character Maeve (Thandie Newton) was acting on her own free will when she decided to abandon her escape plans to instead stay in Westworld to find her daughter.

If you look at her performance in that moment, that is really the first decision she’s ever made. For me, it’s a very emotional moment in the episode because you see her freewill,” Nolan said.

Nolan said filming on Season 2 will not begin until the scripts for all the episodes are done. It is unlikely to premiere until 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
