Who better than The Leftoversgreatest scientific mind to decode Westworld? Season 2 is officially gearing up for production of its robot rampage, and new cast member Katja Herbers has signed on to fight back.

Per Entertainment Weekly, Leftovers and Manhattan star Herbers has joined the Season 2 cast as “a seasoned guest in Westworld whose latest visit comes at the park’s darkest hour” (perhaps she’s the one sending distress calls). Not only that, but Season 2 will officially start production this month (we’d guess after Comic-Con 2017), with 2018 still eyed for the second season’s debut.

Elsewhere of Westworld Season 2, producers have kept the lion’s share of details under wraps, though the 2018 “Journey Into Night” is expected to answer practical questions about the park, potentially even a date for the show’s setting. Ed Harris will be back to play Season 2 on extreme mode (no guarantee for William), while both Talulah Riley and Louis Herthum have been upped to series regulars. We’ll also finally get answers on the mysterious “SW” park, and hopefully learn what became of poor Elsie and Stubbs.

We’ll see what other Westworld Season 2 details shake out at Comic-Con, but stay tuned for the latest in the meantime.
