Westworld Star Confirms His Season 2 Return

Spoiler Alert!

Season one of Westworld hasn’t even finished, and we’re already receiving big news about the cast for season two! Entertainment Weekly has discovered, after coming across a new BBC Radio 4 interview, that one major star of the series has already confirmed his return next season. 

While appearing on Radio 4’s Front Row to discuss his West End debut in Buried Child, Ed Harris casually announced that he’ll be back for another round of HBO’s sci-fi western hit. 

“I was just talking to Jonah Nolan last night, who’s a creator of this thing with his wife, Lisa Joy, and yeah, they’re doing another season,” Harris says. “They’re going to do 10 more episodes, and I will be involved.”

Harris’s continued involvement with the show doesn’t necessarily mean the Man in Black is guaranteed to survive season one. With these human-like hosts in play, we might never know if a dead character is truly gone for good, and we also have to consider the possibility of multiple timelines. But nearing the end of the first year, it does feel like we’ve only scratched the surface of the complex Man in Black and his connections to Delos, so killing him off now would be a surprising move.

Either way, having Harris confirmed for season two is fantastic news.

      • I do have to ask. I came to this via a link which linked, itself, to your 2008 pr3c;dtions&#82e0iGiven not a single one of those was correct, why on Earth do you believe that you’re correct this time?As a non-American, I find the panic over a centrist politician who would be considered moderately right wing in pretty much any European Country including the UK, to be more than a little… well… odd.

  2. Ed Harris is one of my fav actors. This show has Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright and Evan Rachel Wood along with a bunch of other grade A actors.

    I really hope all 4 of the ones I named return because they are really amazing and make Westworld a top notch quality show.

    I remember a movie that Ed Harris directed and stars in with the actor who played Strider in TLotRs. Really really good western, one of the best. Called ‘Appaloosa’.

    You guys should watch it, Ed plays a no nonsense mercenary that goes to troubled towns in the west to clean up the place. He is basically a hired gun, buy a hired gun that represents the law.

    Here is a good clip of right after he gets the town to pay him to become sheriff, he goes to work right away lol.

  3. That is very good to know. May I humbly suggest trading the term “timelines” for “timeframes”? I think the first tend to invoke something like timetravel which is not the case, anyway, I don’t want to be rude, it’s just a suggestion

  4. Interesting!

    Though it’s a pet peeve for me, so I must point out that you mean multiple timeframes, not timelines. They’re all points on the same timeline.
