Westworld Already Confirmed For 4th Season

HBO’s sci-fi western Westworld isn’t due back for another year, but the premium cable network isn’t wasting any time. They’ve already renewed the show for a fourth season.

Wait, Which One Is Westworld Again?

In case you missed it, Westworld the TV show is loosely based on Westworld the 1973 movie. The movie was written and directed by Michael Crichton and the plotline may remind you of his Jurassic Park. To wit, things in an amusement park get a lot less amusing once the attractions start running amok. In Westworld the movie, it’s the robot denizens of a western-themed park.

The TV show has a similar setting–an adults-only theme park where visitors can interact with android hosts. You can play a hero or a villain, saving hosts or killing them. It doesn’t matter, because they’re robots and they don’t remember anything after a cycle has completed.

Or at least, that’s what’s supposed to happen. What’s actually happening is that some of the hosts are retaining memories of their past “lives” and are starting to think they’re getting a raw deal. As you can imagine, that may not bode well for the delicate humans in the park.

What To Look For In Season 3

Now that season 1, subtitled “The Maze,” and season 2, “The Door,” have completed, it’s time to look forward to season 3, “The New World.” While details are still few and far between, we do know that we’ll see some hosts interact with people outside the park. In addition, Delos, the company that owns Westworld, will unveil a new park, set during WWII in Nazi Germany. These details were revealed in the trailer shown at Comic-Con. (It doesn’t look like anything to me.)

The Westworld season 3 trailer introduced new characters played by an eclectic array of actors, including Aaron Paul, Lena Waithe, Vincent Cassel, Kid Cudi, and Marshawn Lynch. Yes, Beast Mode.

Westworld creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan already have deals for the fourth and fifth season, so it’s probably only a matter of time before the show’s renewed once more. Will you be watching?
