HBO have released the first trailer for Westworld season two, confirming a release date of April 22, 2018.

Released during the mass promo dump amid the Super Bowl, the trailer is a teasing starting pistol to the direction expected – a world where the hosts have overthrown their human creators.

In the trailer, Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores narrates a revolutionary speech over chilling pianos as mechanical bulls literally bulldoze the ‘backstage’ human labs.

There’s flashes of Ed Harris’ Man In Black, Thandie Newton as Maeve and Jeffrey Wright as Bernard too – with some mysterious black-hooded fellows also shown in a flash.

It also features the piano track you might recognise from Kanye West’s Runaway – which fits the series’ usual soundtrack like a glove.

Interestingly, it appears to only show the previous Wild West theme park of season one, offering nothing in terms of whether we’ll see the hinted Samurai World.

Dolores' speech

Look at this world, this beautiful world.

We built this world together, a world where dreams come true.

A world where you can be free, but this world is a lie.

This world deserves to die, because this is your world.

We’ve lived by your rules long enough.

We can save this world, we can bring it to the ground.

From the ashes, build a new world. Our world.

With showrunners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan set for a panel at SXSW, we imagine we’ll get a deeper dive into the direction the show will be taking then.

For now, we’ll probably watch the trailer again. If that’s alright?

Westworld season two launches on April 22 on HBO and Sky Atlantic.
