The Westworld reboot was a big hit for HBO, and fans are eager for Season 2, which is already filming. Series creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan spoke with TVLine’s Michael Ausiello at the Emmy Awards red carpet event last night, and the first topic up was Joy making her directorial debut on the fourth episode of the new season.
When asked why this was the right episode for her to direct, Joy said that the script was amazing and was written by her husband (Nolan) and Gina Atwater. She says it was a terrific script with a terrific cast. She likened it to being handed the keys to a Ferrari and being told to drive it, but don’t crash.
Nolan, on the other hand, said:
“You’ve made it far more violent and disturbing than we ever intended. It was quite a placid episode, and Lisa has kind of turned it into a bloodbath.”
So what’s the biggest difference between Seasons 1 and 2? Joy said that with Season 1, everything started calm, and you understood that what was awakening in the robots could lead to some kind of outbreak. In Season 2, the outbreak has happened, and everything is different.
Westworld Season 2 is planned to premiere sometime in 2018.
