Westworld is adding three new cast members ahead of the show's second season premiere.

The western-themed sci-fi welcomes two new series regulars in the form of Gustaf Skarsgård (Vikings) and Tyrant actor Fares Fares.

Deadline reports Skarsgård will play Karl Strand, a white-collar guy who's comfortable in the field, while Fares takes on the role of a tech expert with an objective perspective called Antoine Costa, so maybe things don't look so good for Elsie (Shannon Woodward) after all.

Westworld will return to HBO in 2018 – and is steadily in the process of adding new cast members for its second second season.

Last month, it was revealed that series two will also welcome Neil Jackson and Jonathan Tucker as recurring characters in the show's second season.

British-born Jackson, known for roles in Sleepy Hollow and Make It or Break It, will play Nicholas, a charming, resourceful man who finds himself in uncharted territory, while American Gods star Tucker will play a character called Major Craddock, described as a commanding military officer.

The Leftovers actress Katja Herbers has also joined the cast as Grace, a "seasoned guest in Westworld whose latest visit comes at the park's darkest hour".

The new recruits will join season one regulars Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright.

The second series will also see recurring cast members Talulah Riley and Louis Herthum bumped up to series regular status.

Oh, and Jimmi Simpson (Young William) will also be back, for reasons that remain yet to be seen.

Westworld will return to HBO in 2018.
