Nearly two years after the first season of Westworld premiered on HBO, fans of the sci-fi thriller finally have their first new look at Dolores, Bernard, Maeve, and the whole gang before the April 22 premiere of season two.
Before this, we didn’t know much about what’s to come—just that the robots, also known as “hosts,” are on the edge of world domination. Also, last month savvy fans discovered a new website attributed to the fictional Westworld theme park and its fictional parent company, Delos, that confirmed the theory that there are more parks similar to the saloon-and-gun-slinging Westworld. Now, the new trailer shows glimpses of the show’s characters leaving these parks and visiting the real world—more specifically, what appears to be Japan.
The trailer, released on Thursday morning, opens with Bernard, played by Jeffrey Wright, literally washed up on a beach and, later, describing it to Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) as a “dream,” since, as Westworld fans are already aware, anything shown could be dream, reality, or some murky mixture of the two. We also get glimpses of Dolores riding her horse through the Southwestern terrain with Teddy (James Marsden); Maeve (Thandie Newton) demanding to see her recently discovered daughter; and new characters like geishas and the people of Ghost Nation popping up throughout the two-minute clip.
Season one favorites like Tessa Thompson, who plays Charlotte Hale, “Man in Black” Ed Harris, and Clementine (Angela Sarafyan) also make appearances, though controversial character Dr. Ford (Anthony Hopkins), who had a shocking storyline in the first season’s finale, does not. The entire trailer is almost too much to take in at once, as is the Westworld way, but, of course, theories are already a-brewing in fan forums like Reddit. And if you still can’t keep up, refresh your memory of the events of the first season with this comprehensive guide. The reckoning has already begun.
Watch the trailer, below.
