Tv Season Info

Season 2 of the drama series deals with the aftermath of the massacre of the Delos board members that closed the previous season. As different timelines overlap, Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) puts together an army of hosts and hunts the survivors, planning to take over the real world; meanwhile, Charlotte (Tessa Thompson) tries to understand what happened and regain control of the park. Others embark on different but related quests: Maeve (Thandie Newton) goes looking for her daughter, helped by Hector (Rodrigo Santoro) and Lee (Simon Quarterman); Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) tries to find a solution to the situation without revealing his identity; from beyond the grave, Ford (Anthony Hopkins) ropes William (Ed Harris) into a new game and sends him on a search for the Door, without revealing what it really is.

Critic Reviews for Westworld Season 2

All Critics (78) | Top Critics (26)

The show is swimming in blood, timelines and fortune-cookie wisdom. But the show has lost the curiosity factor that made the original season engrossing.

It's also fascinating to explore the extent to which the hosts are still staying on-script and the extent to which they're going AWOL.

The good news is that there's a glimpse of a stunning new themed world to keep the viewer hooked on this hokum.

May 2, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Season two promises to be quite the ride.

Apr 20, 2018 | Full Review…

It's again easy to get lost in HBO's Westworld, both from a total absorption standpoint and in trying to deduce what possibly, or impossibly, is going on.

Filled with wonder one moment, brutally ruthless the next, Doris keeps the sprawling HBO drama electric with uncertainty and dread.

Apr 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Everything is perfectly balanced but there is a detail that 'Kiksuya' does not completely transcend: its repetitive nature. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The episode feels like a coherent ending and, thanks to a spatial junction of the characters, the feeling of recapitulation is total. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 16, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It is quicker than before. It is thrilling to watch and easier to adjust to. Every episode has its own mini-cliffhanger, which is a plus.

Jul 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Yes, Westworld expertly evokes a sense of bleak alienation. But you can get that from Coronation Street: and at least you'll know what's going on.

Audience Reviews for Westworld: Season 2

  • Aug 10, 2019
    More annoying, pretentious writing.
  • Aug 08, 2019
    Cannot seem to get past the third episode. Season two is so very slow. I've tried two times over the past year, with a full binge on the first season just before. I'll try again. I promise!
  • Aug 08, 2019
    The writers clearly tried to get too clever with season 2, resulting in a very confusing mess. Using different timelines made this complicated story even more confusing, requiring them to provide a 10 minute explanation at the end of each episode. I even read an article that explained the timelines but still very confusing. Then they tried to diversify their audience by including a totally irrelevant episode or two in Samurai world, which came off looking way too contrived. Some have have mentioned the over the top feminist themes in season 2 which I have to agree with. I wouldn't have kept watching half way into the season if my wife didn't insist, and we both agreed we wouldn't watch season 3. It's a shame with such a great idea and cast of characters, not to mention the best theme song ever!
  • Jul 29, 2019
    My advise would be to just watch the first season as there is a huge drop in depth and the first season works as a stand alone series, but all in all the second season is still okish.
  • Jul 28, 2019
    So I watched both seasons 1 & 2 consecutively over a 3 week period. I have to say, I was half expecting the second season to be terrible after reading all the complaining and whining from all the negative reviews here, but instead I wound up being more than pleasantly surprised. The writers actually did an excellent job in answering all the questions leftover from the first season (and there were many). I found none of the episodes either boring or confusing to me in the slightest. The storylines and character development were both intriguing and fascinating. However I guess this show requires a certain degree of intellect to follow along, and apparently some of you don't have it. Either that or you were expecting some reiterated version of season 1, which this most certainly is not. It's definitely the next step in the world of Westworld's evolution. Personally I'm very much looking forward to season 3.

    Needs a rewatch to appreciate fully

    A bit confusing on the first watching, but a real treat afterwards!
  • Jun 23, 2019
    Crazy how bad it got!! :-( all of it storylines and motives make absolutely no sense anymore. BUT the worst is the pathetic feminism man oh man. Hopkins is as always brilliant but that is really not enought
  • Jun 23, 2019
    Great visuals most of the times. Just watched half way through episode 4 and I have to say the show takes itself too god damn seriously that it's boring as hell.
  • Jun 20, 2019
    La segunda temporada no alcanza el nivel que tuvo en la primera temporada, pero aún así sigue derrochando mucha calidad en sus episodios, a pesar de que hayan momentos tediosos y aburridos en ellos.
