‘Westworld’ Creators Dish About Robert Ford’s Return, Fan Theories, Golden Globe Nominations, And More
It is no big surprise that "Westworld" ended up with three Golden Globe nominations this year following an ultra-successful pilot season that brought viewers to a stunning, technologically-advanced amusement park of hosts. In celebration of the series' overwhelming feat, creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy recently spilled some details of what's coming up in "Westworld" season 2, which include the revelation of a returning character.
Golden Globe Nominations
With the recent announcement of nominees for Golden Globe awards, the HBO series was nominated under TV series and drama category-Maeve portrayer Thandie Newton for best supporting performance by an actress and Dolores portrayer Evan Rachel Wood for performance by an actress.
In an interview with LA Times, both Nolan and Joy had expressed how it is working with Newton and Wood. "Both of them have such amazing range and heart and strength and, honestly, not just in their performance but in real life too. You could not ask for better collaborators in every way. I feel that way about our entire cast," Joy said.
Fan Theories, Ford's Return
After "Westworld" ended last week, a ton of fan theories about the next season has started to surface since. One prominent speculation pertains to Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins). Apparently, he died at the hands of host Dolores as the last episode ended. However, theories suggest Ford was able to create a doppelganger robot to die in his place that, as a creator, Ford is capable of.
For Nolan, he did not directly confirm that Ford will be coming back in season 2, but what he said suggests so. In fact, he appreciated how fans engage with the discussion about the show saying, "To have any kind of conversation around your show is exciting, but the level of engagement the fans brought to it, it's very, very gratifying."
Nola further detailed that he is not surprised that fans were able to see even the minutest pieces they painstakingly laid into the narrative.
"Westworld" season 2 is slated to return in 2018 on HBO.
