The secret and unofficial title for Westworld season 2 holds details regarding what to expect from the show’s future plot.
Westworld, the hit HBO sci-fi series, already has plenty of mystery to it, keeping its audience guessing right along the way throughout its debut season. But things aren’t going to get any more straightforward in the future.
Season two is right around the corner and co-showrunner Jonathan Nolan has teased details regarding this season’s title, ‘The Door’.
“If the first season was a journey inward, this is a journey outward,” Nolan explained to EW.
“This is a search for what else is beyond the park, and what else is in the park. Are there more parks? How big is the park? What’s beyond the park? We think of our seasons as discrete components in the series, to the point where we’ve named our seasons. The first season was called ‘The Maze.’ The second season is called ‘The Door’.”
‘The Door’ could refer to a great many things, of course, but most obviously this is a tease that the park’s inhabitants, having broken their chains, will finally leave the confines of their prison.
What else do you think the title could be referring to?
Live without limits in a world where every human appetite can be indulged. Created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, comes this dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin.
Westworld season 2 premieres on April 22nd on HBO.
