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 (79) | 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.

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…

[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.

Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

On cultural cue, Westworld series two's first episode - in which hosts have broken free of their programmed "loops" and killed most of the guests and the Delos board - delivers the female "glow up" we've all been waiting for.

Audience Reviews for Westworld: Season 2

    A great follow up to a show that came out blowing the whole world away. Absolutely loving this show and I can't wait to see how far they take this as it progresses beyond the original story into something complex and new.

    Beautifully made but difficult to follow. You never know when you are watching someones memories or current events. Only makes sense at the end. Some say it was to difficult, but finally a series that doesn't cater to the dumbest of us all. Also the episode in Lakota language was a joy to listen to, beautiful sounding language

    Great first season , then went full SJ double W........... Show imploded on itself , nowhere to go.. Al the complex male characters were killed off and now we got mary Sue's 1-5
  • Sep 16, 2019
    For all the good acting and effects.. watching this show was a chore. It felt too wondrously epic and without down to earth characters to keep me invested, I got bored.
  • Sep 15, 2019
    This season isn't as good as the first but it still offers some great characters and twists and turns. The plot is less defined and at times is all over the place with 2 different timelines and some side plots feel very odd and don't sit well. Episode 4 is a real game changer while episode 5 is a bit of a dud. And the last 3 episodes are very well done. The after credit scene...huh? Looking forward to season 3.

    What a load of trash vs. Season 1! A bunch of social justice warrior drivel. Revenge fest for the beset upon Bots. Also more PG rated than provocative first season. Hard to follow, too many ridiculous subplots. Squeezing in Shogun and Native American Indians. All men are bad. All women are good and should kill all the men...

    First season was great, second season killed the franchise for me. All of the characters I cared about were torn down or turned into Mary Sues and the plot essentially went nowhere because they used everything up in the first season.
  • Sep 05, 2019
    The only thing good about this Season was the music, and that one episode with the short story about the native american dude. Other than that this Season was a pile of letdown. Every mystery that Season 1 tried to build up to this great big plan was made either into a complete let down or just went by badly explained. Doubt Season 3 is going to be any better.
  • Sep 05, 2019
    Trash..it's terrible. All the men are boring and all the women are the same mary sue character.
  • Aug 10, 2019
    More annoying, pretentious writing.
