The first season of “Westworld” is now said and done, and while it would certainly be incredible to be able to watch the second season sooner rather than later, the reality remains that it won’t likely be coming back until se get around to 2018. In some ways, that is obviously still a difficult pill to swallow.
Ultimately, we do still have the same stance that we did when the show first decided to wait until 2018 to come back on the air with new episodes, and it’s in part that it is better to wait for quality than toss out something now that is good, but at the same time a shell of your first-season self. You want to try to match the expectations as much as you can, even if that proves to be extraordinarily difficult.
In speaking a little bit further about one change the show has planned for the upcoming season, executive producer Jonathan Nolan said (per TVLine) that the show may take a little bit more time focusing in some other aspects of their next park (wherever that may be); specifically, they “will spend a little bit more time next season shining a light on those aspects of the park — what does it feel like to come to it as a guest? — just a little bit before the mayhem starts.”
Nolan also said in the same piece some of the reasoning behind the decision to not show this particular experience as much in the first season, and to focus on some of the hosts more so than the guests:
“We talked a lot about how the experience would feel for a contemporary guest going into the park. We laid out a lot of that logic in the writers’ room … it didn’t feel appropriate to spend too much time illuminating how unreal this place is, because the hosts believe in it so much up until that horrifying moment when they realize that it’s an artificial world. So we didn’t get bogged down in it.”
