Even as Westworld‘s cast and crew head out to Utah to continue filming the second season, it looks like the show’s presence at California’s Melody Ranch set is by no mean over! Westworld Watchers reader Jeanne was recently able to take some pictures of the set pieces within the Melody Ranch compound, a couple of which lend even more credibility to some popular fan theories.

About a month ago, we reported that metal scaffolding had been added to the exterior town set. It was unclear what this scaffolding was being used for, and if it would appear in front of the camera or would solely be used to help support the crew. This is what the set looked like with the metal scaffolding visible:

Westworld Newcomer Katja Herbers Drops Major Hint About a Possible Season 2 Return!

Katja Herbers Casting

As filming continues on Westworld‘s second season, we have some interesting information to share courtesy of new cast member Katja Herbers. The Dutch actress recently spoke to Veronica Magazine about her filming experience, and – as reported by the site De Telegraaf – the Dutch actress describes the shoot as “physically quite intensive, working days of sixteen, seventeen hours.” She explains that this contrasts to filming in the Netherlands, which typically stops after ten hours. In the United States however, “Everyone gets paid overtime, but it’s working until you drop.”

William_The Well Tempered Clavier

Jimmi Simpson turned out a memorable performance as William in Westworld’s first season. His portrayal of heroic William’s descent into darkness and evolution into the villainous Man in Black was both masterful and heartbreaking. Luckily we will get to see more of his backstory, as Simpson has confirmed he is returning to Westworld for season two.

If you can’t wait until then to catch Simpson on the small screen, he will be appearing in another technologically based drama later this year – Black Mirror. In an interview today with The Cheat Sheet, Simpson shares his thoughts about the show and how it compares to Westworld.

Here’s An In-Depth Look At NYCC’s ‘Westworld: The Experience’

Westworld Experience NYCC_Front Desk

As initially reported late last week, Westworld has set up yet another immersive activation for fans who want to temporarily step out of reality and into the show’s universe. The latest incarnation has been created in conjunction with this weekend’s New York Comic Con, boasting the title ‘Westworld: The Experience.’ While very few people relative to the show’s large fan base will be able to immerse themselves in this experience in person, a group of reporters were invited to walk through the installation. And lucky for us, their descriptions paint quite a vivid picture.

Two reporters in particular provide wonderful accounts of their experiences: Julia Alexander from Polygon, and Proma Khosla from Mashable. We’ve picked the most intriguing parts from both of their articles, in the hopes that we can transport you to New York City and into Westworld‘s installation from the comfort of your computer screens. So let’s jump right in…

Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy Tease New Westworld Season 2 Parks; Evan Rachel Wood Discusses the Upcoming “Twice As Crazy” Season

Samurai World_Season 1

Ever since the introduction of ‘Samurai World’ in Westworld‘s season one finale, fans have been speculating about whether or not the show will explore this or any other new parks in the upcoming second season. It certainly seems promising, especially with the introduction of Samurai character Musashi (played by new cast addition Hiroyuki Sanada) and with the new set pieces that have recently appeared at the Melody Ranch set.

Luckily for us, we have been provided with yet another clue that Westworld won’t be the only park we’ll be spending time in next season. As reported by Deadline, co-showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy recently participated in a panel at the 2017 Vanity Fair Summit, and it was here that they dropped one of their signature vague but promising hints.

Evan Rachel Wood Opens Up about Her Westworld Character at Forbes 30 Under 30

Dolores Waking Up on Westworld

Those who think Westworld is purely just a show about humans and robots playing cowboy and cowgirl in the comfort of an expensive theme park are sorely mistaken. While that element is certainly present in the show, some of the most intriguing storylines delve into complex social issues that could not be more relevant today. Over the first season, we see what it’s like for hosts to be dominated by their human counterparts, and towards the latter half, we witness a flip of the script as the self-conscious robots start taking the power back.

Evan Rachel Wood‘s Dolores finds herself in the middle of this revolution, assuming the role of a courageous leader as the androids take on the people who have oppressed them for so long. It seems there is no better actress than Wood to assume a role like this, not only because of her superb acting abilities, but also because of the personal experiences that have shaped her into the person she is today.
