With Season 2 of Westworld quickly approaching, fans of the HBO series are trying their best to figure out just what will be going on this year, by looking at clues left all over the internet by the showrunners. Well, it seems like the minds behind the series are planning on revealing everything, beat by beat, on the internet prior to the show’s airing.
Showrunner Jonathan Nolan took to Reddit today to discuss his plans for the second season and whether or not he would reveal everything that’s going to happen in the upcoming episodes. Because the Reddit community explores every nook and cranny of the HBO series, theories redditors come up with can actually be spoilers. So instead of ignoring and denying what could actually be truths about the new season, Nolan wants to put it all online, as long as the people want it.
“We thought about this long and hard, and came to a difficult (and potentially highly controversial) decision,” explained Nolan. “If you guys agree, we’re going to post a video that lays out the plot (and twists and turns) of Season 2. Everything. The whole sordid thing. Up front. That way the members of the community here who want the season spoiled for them can watch ahead, and then protect the rest of the community, and help to distinguish between what’s ‘theory’ and what’s spoiler.”
Nolan went on to say that if the post gets 1,000 upvotes, they will “deliver the goods.” This message comes on the heels of the Reddit community finding websites with Season 2 details, with URLs to these sites hidden within promotional images for the show.
Fans started getting really excited for the upcoming season when a trailer was released during this year’s Super Bowl. Season 1 left fans with so many questions, especially after seeing a bunch of samurais during the finale; however, we now know for sure that we will be making a trip to Shogun world, and it will be gory. We’ll have to wait and see if Westworld will be taking us anywhere else this season. Maybe Futureworld?
Season 2 of Westworld comes to HBO on April 22.
