Westworld Season 2 Episode 1-5 Titles, Plot Synopses, Air Dates, and TV Spot
HBO has released the Westworld: Season 2 official episode titles, plot synopses, and the air dates for the April – May 2018 episodes of its science fiction TV series. The Westworld episodes included are 11-15. The first of the April episodes will premiere on April 22, 2018 at 9 p.m.
Westworld is one of the most anticipated series returns of this TV season. Even with that being said and the premiere date imminent, HBO is still playing its cards close to the chest, releasing only spartan information. The plot synopses are minute and cryptic but for the stalwart Westworld fan, they can read between the lines.
Westworld: Season 2 stars Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Ed Harris, Katja Herbers, Thandie Newton, Talulah Riley, Jonathan Tucker, Louis Herthum, Neil Jackson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Luke Hemsworth, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Tessa Thompson, Shannon Woodward, Steven Ogg, Timothy Lee DePriest, and Jeffrey Wright.
The people and the companies behind-the-scenes of Westworld: the series is executive produced and written Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Westworld is also executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, and Bryan Burk. Westworld is produced by Bad Robot Productions.
