Violent delights and surprises greeted the 'Westworld' fans at San Diego Comic-con 2017.

Even though the critically acclaimed Western/Sci-Fi show won’t release until 2018, HBO surprised the fans by unveiling a trailer during the 'Westworld' panel in the Hall H. This was unexpected, considering that the series has only been in production for a week according to the cast and crew. And after a panel that was mostly just the cast having fun and being tight-lipped regarding the details of the second season, they finally revealed the trailer.

Not much was mentioned during the 'Westworld' panel at Comic-con regarding the plot details of the second season.

However, while talking with the Entertainment Weekly, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy said that the second season would definitely not be picking up immediately after the hosts' uprising of the previous season’s finale.

This is not that surprising considering the way the first season’s story unfolded and how it handled its different timelines. Nolan also said on his previous Entertainment Weekly interview that the second season would delve deeper on the construction of the hosts.

The series was based on a 1973 Sci-Fi/Thriller movie of the same name. The story revolves around a futuristic amusement park intended for rich vacationers. The park contains robots called hosts with a sole purpose of serving the visitors’ fantasies (no matter how illicit it may be) without any consequence.

The series was created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.

The season 2 trailer

The trailer doesn’t reveal much plot wise. However, while giving us a quick glimpse at the aftermath of the hosts' uprising on the previous season’s finale, the trailer’s vagueness and strong imagery tell us a lot regarding where the show is headed for the second season.

With a piano intro, the mood is set as Bernard Low, played by Jeffrey Wright, is seen staring down at a dead tiger while an old song titled “I Gotta Be Me” by Sammy Davis Jr. is playing in the background. Then, we see Maeve (Thandie Newton) standing side by side with Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman) staring at a hallway filled with dead people (or hosts).

The trailer also shows a furious Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Teddy (James Marsden) on horseback, remorselessly shooting people running away from them. The trailer ends with a close-up of William/Man in Black (Ed Harris) slightly smiling while covered in blood. You can watch the 'Westworld' Season 2 trailer below.
