A NEW CHAPTER OF WESTWORLD


(Thandie Newton)

A gorgeous combination of fantasy, desire and desolate dystopia, Westworld immersed fans in a story of artificial consciousness in its premiere season, with colourful, dark and broody characters that quickly gained avid followers.

Now, M-Net channel 101 is bringing the acclaimed sci-fi thriller back with season 2, starting Monday April 23 at 22h00, exclusively Express from the US.

The Emmy-winning and Golden Globe-nominated drama left many questions on the table in its season one finale – the most important being: what happens the day after a revolution? In a season 2 trailer that was dropped in the States during the Super Bowl, fans were treated to teasers of new worlds, more richly designed, more stunning than the last. There were also dark hints of coming violence and chaos for all characters. With a new purpose, Westworld season 2 promises to unfold the mystery of its compelling story one episode at a time.

The series’ ensemble cast includes Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Tessa Thompson, Jimmi Simpson, Shannon Woodward, Ben Barnes, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth and Talulah Riley.

Joining the season two cast are series regulars Katja Herbers, Gustaf SkarsgÃ¥rd and Fares Fares. Season two is created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, who are executive producers, Emmy-winner J.J. Abrams, Athena Wickham, Roberto  Patino, Richard Lewis  and Ben Stephenson.

All ten episodes of this critically acclaimed drama will available on Catch Up and Catch Up Plus and DStv platforms. Note: Because of the extraordinarily fast turn-around time all Express episodes unfortunately do not have a family track or hearing-impaired titles.
