HBO is ramping up their marketing for the upcoming sophomore season of Westworld. After setting up the town of Sweetwater 17 miles outside of South By Southwest (SXSW) this year, it seemed like it would maybe be a while before the next big push by the cable network.
This morning, a new poster for season 2 was released, stating “Chaos Takes Control”:

The link takes you to a bot who answers questions about the park, and responds in a live chat format:
“Experience the first vacation destination where you can live without limits. Westworld is a meticulously crafted and artfully designed park offering an unparalleled, immersive world where you have the freedom to become who you’ve always wanted to be—or who you never knew you were. Exist free of rules, laws or judgment. No impulse is taboo.
Our hosts are here to fulfill your every desire. They look forward to serving you.”
It’s a little disconcerting, but fans should definitely check it out.
There was also a tease posted today by Jimmi Simpson, but the timing would signal the ‘news’ was about Aeden:

My personal favorite thing on the new site is this map of Westworld:
The HBO series returns on April 22nd for its second season, and we’re pretty excited to see what happens next.
