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 (81) | Top Critics (29)

In its second season, Westworld's special effects remain impressive and bursts of violence juice the narrative just when things get tedious.

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.

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…

The very good news is that Westworld now feels like more of a journey instead of just a puzzle box waiting to be solved. And I can't wait to see where we're going.

Apr 18, 2018 | Full Review…

While there are a few slight missteps, there is no denying that Westworld loves telling a grand, epic story.

[T]he show remains one of TV's boldest and smartest offerings.

Oct 17, 2019 | 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

    Westworld still is the Masterpiece it was in its first Season, although some People may find it a bit confusing you gotta admit that it has some really brilliant Storytelling especially the Arc from some of the Characters. And the Gore they have is maybe one of the Best on TV. And the Performances are still darn good, I don't know why but I just love Evan Rachel Wood. RATING: 4,86

    Not as good as season 1 but you still have to watch it.
  • Sep 12, 2020
    Is this the same show?!
  • Aug 30, 2020
    Disappointed loved season 1
  • Aug 14, 2020
    The second season surprised me by the positive. The viewer is taken to the limit through scenes of violence and suspension. I advise to see. The protagonists have a good performance.
  • Aug 04, 2020
    After an incredible first season, despite some good shows, season 2 just couldn't match up. Why? There are way too many idiotic things to list, but ridiculously complicated plots that often made no sense, constant flashbacks/memories intertwined with reality to the point where you didn't know what was reality (and by the end, didn't care, just wanted it to be over), numerous violations of logic and 'rules' that gave the original show plausibility, etc. This season slowly but surly climbed the big ski ramp ramp and JUMPED the SHARK! Finally, watching the making of the shows at the end was annoying... the interviews of the producer and many of the artists felt like listening to rock stars bragging how great they are. Blah.

    4.5. Westworld season 2 understands the complexity within season 1 and tries to replicate it. While it does stick to gory storylines and intriguing stories, it simply doesn't work like the first season. Too many storylines cause it to be much too complicated, hard for someone who understood the first season pretty clearly. On top, unlike the final episode of the first season, the ending of season two is unable to satisfy every storyline within the season.
  • Jul 06, 2020
    Looks like the franchise is going in a direction that has been chewed already 500 times. Very disappointing compared to season 1.
  • Jun 30, 2020
    A great continuation!
  • Jun 26, 2020
    What can I say, just as strong as the first. Incredible acting, intense plot, interesting new directions and fantastic character development (one character especially!!)
