Editor Note: I would say that there’s a slight chance this could actually someday receive a 4K UHD Blu-ray release, considering that the distributor recently announced plans to bring their first title to that format. That film announced for 4K also stars Anthony Hopkins (“Hannibal“) so it would be fitting.

The HBO series “Westworld” is receiving home video release of its second season, according to an early alert to retailers. “Westworld: Season Two – The Door” is coming to both 4K UHD Blu-ray and Blu-ray Disc on December 4th via HBO (Warner). Tech specs and bonus materials have not yet been detailed by the studio, that I have seen, so stay tuned for an update on that. They should be identical to the tech specs on the first season, you would think. Just speculating there, though.
