Tessa Thompson Teases 'Westworld' Season 2 at The Emmys

"The future is female."

One of the best parts of the Emmys red carpet is watching out for spoilers during those generally bland pre-ceremony interviews. Tessa Thompson, who plays the high-powered Charlotte Hale in Westworld, dropped a tantalizing hint about Season 2 of the HBO drama.

"The next season feels really like 'The future is female,'" Thompson told ET this evening.

This feels pretty appropriate, given that the Season 1 finale saw Maeve (Thandie Newton) become the first host to exhibit true free will, while Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) finally reached consciousness.

Creators Jonah Nolan and Lisa Joy have described Season 2 as "twice as ambitious" as the first, delving into the question of "what's really happening in this place?" The new season will air in 2018.
