Stop us if you’ve heard this one before – an actor may have misled us about their return to a major TV series. Yes, despite repeated denials that one Westworld star would be saddling up for another trip to the park, the actor in question now confirms that the Man in Black will return to his greener days.
It’s that time of the year again when we begin to take stock of the best TV of the year and put our heads together to predict who will take home the gold come awards night. On Thursday, the TV Academy will announce their selections for the 2017 Emmy Awards. We already know the usual suspects will pop up, from shoo-in Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Modern Family and House of Cards, but what about the new series and the underdogs?
Westworld bosses wouldn’t give up the ghost of exactly when Season 2 will shoot, but judging by the cast additions of late, we can’t be far off. After all, these violent delights will have doubly-violent ends, now that Season 1 star Louis Herthum is officially among the regular cast.
Westworld isn’t likely to give up many goods until 2018, least of all whether one of its most memorable characters could make a surprise return. Still, Jimmi Simpson thinks the younger version of William might yet have a place in future seasons, even if it takes another year or so to get there.
We’ve barely begun the buildup to Westworld Season 2, but some fresh inside looks should help keep the mysteries at bay until 2018. See for yourself, as the digital release of Westworld Season 1 brings about two new behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Westworld was stingy enough with promotional material before we learned Season 2 would sit out until 2018, so we’ll take whatever 2017 fix we can get. Strangely enough, it’s Billy Crystal and City Slickers to the rescue, as a new Funny or Die crossover parody brings back a number of familiar faces from the Delos corporation.
