Trailer for Westworld season 2

With Game of Thrones absent from TV screens this year, HBO have filled the void with another ground-breaking series: Westworld.

The second season of the science fiction Western returns viewers to the robotic park where the hosts are currently beginning their uprising, led by Delores (Evan Rachel Wood).

So, when does the show return? How do you watch the show? And what are the critics saying about the first few episodes? Here’s what you need to know before Westworld’s return.

When does the show return?

Westworld returns for season two tonight (22 April) and will run weekly for ten weeks.

How to watch in the UK and US

US viewers can tune into Westworld on HBO at 9:00pm EST. The show will also be simulcast in the UK on Sky Atlantic, which is a broadcast time of 2:00am BST. The episode will then be broadcast on Sky Atlantic later on Monday at the much more reasonable hour of 9:00pm.

For those in the UK who can’t stay up late but can’t wait all day, the episode will be available on NOW TV as well. US viewers can stream on HBO GO.

What are the critics saying?

Reviews for season two have once again been solid, The Independent saying: “Episode one you might find a little anticlimactic, it mostly just establishing the lay of the land and the beasts within it, but episode two is one of the show's best episodes yet.” Entertainment Weekly, Variety, RadioTimes, and many others have also given similarly positive reviews.

What do I need to remember from season one?

A lot happened in season one. Mysteries about the maze (which led to robots finding inner conscience), the man in black twist (Mcpoyle was Ed Harris all along!), and Bernard not being human (Ford created him). Here’s the visual recap HBO have released.

Anything else?

Now you’re caught up on season one and know how to watch season two, you’re ready for another season of Westworld. So chose which cowboy hat you want and saddle up for another mind-bending, time-twisting ten episodes.
