The real name for Westworld‘s mysterious feudal Japan-themed land has been revealed.
Entertainment Weekly reports the theme park, hinted at in the Season 1 finale, isn’t called Samurai World as many fans thought. Instead, its actual name is Shogun World.
In the final episode of the first season, the Japan-themed section can be seen labeled with the initials SW. It seems the show went with shogun over the much-assumed samurai. According to EW, the precise spelling is most likely ShogunWorld/SHOGUNWORLD, as its written like that in the Season 1 finale script. Shogun is a term applied to military commanders in feudal Japan.
Westworld: Season 2 premieres on HBO on April 22 at 9pm ET/PT. Be sure to read about the origins of the show and movie and check out our breakdown of the Season 2 trailer. Also find out about the Westworld theme park coming to South by Southwest.
