HBO has revived Westworld to get a fourth season, with only two episodes to go from the next season’s run. The dystopian sci-fi series, created by husband-wife duo Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, is based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the identical name. Though it resembled the film for the very first two seasons, since it had been set in the futuristic theme park, Westworld has largely transported itself to the human world beginning with the continuing third season.
In a prepared statement on Wednesday, HBO’s president of programming Casey Bloys noted as much as he declared that the Westworld season 4 renewal: “From the western theme park to the technocratic metropolis of this near future, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed every twist and turn from the minds of master storytellers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. We can’t wait to find out where their inspired vision takes us .”
With Game of Thrones off atmosphere as the prequels continue development, Westworld is arguably HBO’s flagship series at the moment. Nolan and Joy have alluded to some six-season run several times previously, which ought to keep Westworld in the atmosphere for several decades, considering the long differences between consecutive seasons of the show. Season 1 premiered in October 2016, season 2 began in April 2018, and season 3 followed March 2020.
Even though Westworld has failed to level up itself season-on-season or collect viewership anywhere near Game of Thrones, it boasts one of the most gifted acting ensembles on TV. Westworld season 3 stars Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Aaron Paul, Tessa Thompson, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Luke Hemsworth, Simon Quarterman, and Vincent Cassel.
Westworld is available on Disney+ Hotstar in India. New episodes arrive Monday.
