A new season of HBO's sci-fi show promises a bloody continuation of the robot Hosts' revenge tour.

The premiere of Westworld season 2 is almost upon us, and HBO released the first trailer for it Thursday.

Starring Thandie Newton, James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Ed Harris, and Anthony Hopkins, the robots-gone-wild series was created by Jonah Nolan and Lisa Joy and won four Emmys for its first season.

Here are 11 things the new trailer revealed.

1. Another Massacre Is Coming

You needn’t have seen the original 1973 film to guess that we haven’t seen the end of the fighting in Westworld. The trailer reveals Bernard on the shores of a beach with bodies floating in the water – but are they human or Host? We then see him with Ashley Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth), a holographic map of the territory, and what looks like an assault team.

2. It’s Official: Robots Are Large and in Charge in Season 2

Bernard is having a philosophical conversation with the Host Dolores Abernathy (Wood), but we see her wandering freely in what looks like the library of Dr. Robert Ford (Hopkins). Harris’ Man in Black says, “Up until this point, the stakes were never real, but now you and the rest of your kind are free.” He’s not talking dogies home on the range.

3. Maeve Will See Her Daughter Again – Or Else (We’re Guessing)

“She’s something we programmed – she’s not real,” Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman) tells Host Maeve Millay (Newton). Maeve: “You’re going to take me to my daughter.” We’re laying bets that’s a threat, not a request and she is deadly serious about it. The bodies strewn about underscore her point. Lee may be a self-interested weasel, but he’s a Delos parks designer, and he has the power to make this happen – in the interest of self-preservation, he will make this happen.

4. New York, New York – It’s a Wonderful Town (Or Is That Chicago or L.A.?)

The trailer shows William (Jimmi Simpson) in one of the labs approaching naked Dolores. Later, we see her in contemporary human clothing against a cityscape and then again sitting beside a piano at a cocktail party. Voiceover: “I know exactly what is out there.” Time for the rogue Hosts to infiltrate the humans.

5. The Dead Shall Rise Again

Dolores tells Bernard, “Here we are – a kind that will never know death,” over a shot of a Host child with a smashed face. “And yet we’re fighting to live.” She says onscreen to Bernard, “There is beauty in what we are.” The next shot is of Maeve caressing a reanimated Hector Escaton (Rodrigo Santoro) in the lab.

6. Unformed Hosts Will Join the Fight

Even half-baked models will be brought to life to join the Hosts’ fight.

7. The Jig May Be up for Bernard

Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) finds a secret stash of Bernards.

8. Westworld Meets Shogun World!

It has previously been reported that what had been “Samurai World” in the feature film will be “Shogun World” in Westworld, and it is one of six parks developed by Delos. The trailer features Shogun warriors, a dancer, and Maeve is shown in traditional dress of the period.

9. Meet the Family

Updated: That’s not Peter Abernathy (Louis Herthum), as we previously thought — damn these eyes! We’re meeting Logan’s (Ben Barnes) dad, James Delos (Peter Mullan) – William’s would-be father-in-law and the founder of Delos. That said, Herthum was promoted to series regular for season 2, so we’ll definitely be seeing more of Dolores’ dad.

10. The Soundtrack Is Awesome

Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” has been reworked for Westworld by composer Ramin Djawadi (also responsible for HBO’s other epic series, Game of Thrones) and plays over the trailer. The soundtrack for Westworld season 2 will be available digitally on March 30.

11. The Wrath of the Righteous Will Rain Down Upon Them

“They wanted a place hidden from God. We had something else in mind entirely. I’m gonna burn this whole thing to the ground.” – Man in Black

Westworld season 2 premieres Sunday, April 22 on HBO.
