Uh oh. The creepy world of “Westworld” looks like it’s going to get even creepier when season two premieres on HBO next month.
The studio shared a new poster/GIF on Twitter on Thursday under the banner “CHAOS TAKES CONTROL,” with an android vulture standing over a bloody hat in the desert.

HBO also retweeted several of the show’s stars, who served up plugs for the premiere and links to a Discover Westworld website. Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Jimmi Simpson, Thandi Newton, Ben Barnes, Luke Hemsworth, Louis Herthum, Shannon Woodward and Angela Sarafyan were among those tweeting.
The show chronicles the drama inside a Wild West-themed “park” for high-paying visitors. Season one ended with the violent realization that the androids who are central to the experience have become too smart for their own good — or, rather, for the good of the humans who hope to control them.
On the website, fans can “chat with Aeden,” a Westworld host who will answer questions about their upcoming trip to the fantasy land.

Tweets on Thursday warned “the loops are branching onto a new path,” in reference to the narrative or storyline programmed into hosts that are supposed to continuously reset in the artificial beings.
Entertainment Weekly has more from the “Westworld” team on how season two “promises to blow the barn doors off the mysterious futuristic world established in the show’s debut season, with a larger scope, more intense violence, and an even more labyrinthian, M.C. Escher-like narrative.”
“Westworld” returns to HBO on April 22.
