Warning: If you don’t want to read possible spoilers about the end of Westworld‘s first season, it’s a good idea to go elsewhere now.
This’ll provide fodder for a few more of your Westworld fan theories: Star Ed Harris has made it clear that he’ll be back for Season 2.

Harris, who plays the HBO series’ mysterious Man in Black, told a BBC Radio 4 host that he’d recently spoken with series co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. (EW.com first noted the news.)
“They’re going to do 10 more episodes, and I will be involved,” he added.

So what does this mean? It doesn’t necessarily indicate that the Man in Black — whom we have been led to believe is human — survives the season; though that is certainly a possibility. But after last week’s reveal that Bernard is, in fact, a host, might Harris wind up playing an android made to resemble the real Man in Black?
