There is no official release date for "Westworld" season 2 yet but there are many rumors on what may happen when the series returns. Previously, it was revealed that the second season will be full of chaos. There are speculations the new season will feature an entirely new set of characters.
"Westworld" season 1 concluded with Dolores shooting Ford, meanwhile, an army of reactivated hosts emerge from a nearby forest. According to a report, the finale hinted that the season 2 might be set in another park, therefore, a new set of the cast will be introduced.
During Maeve's escape, fans can't help but notice the letters "SW" on the wall. In a previous interview, with "Westworld" showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, it was hinted that the new season will feature a Samurai World. There are also theories that many other theme parks exist.
On the other hand, some characters from season 1 are also returning. Confirmed cast members to return include Ed Harris, who plays the Man in Black (also known as the Gunslinger) and Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, who portrays a bandit host, Armistice. Jeffrey Wright will also be back as Bernard Lowe as well as Evan Rachel Wood who plays the role of Dolores Abernathy.
Other characters that might possibly make an appearance in season 2 include Ford and Elise. Nolan previously dropped a hint on Ford's return. He said that version of Ford Dolores shot in the finale is definitely dead, however, nobody knows in a robotic world. There might be other versions of Ford popping out. Another apparently dead character who might appear is "Westworld" season 2 is Elise according to Joy.
"We've well established we're playing in a more advanced ruleset in terms of death and resurrection than other [projects] I've worked on. So I would say: assume nothing," Nolan said in an interview hinting even dead characters can return in the second season. "Westworld" season 2 is expected to return sometime in 2017.
