What’s next for Westworld? Recently, co-creator Lisa Joy spoke with Stuff about the future of the HBO TV show.
Based on the 1973 feature film, the sci-fi drama is set in a futuristic theme park where visitors pay a lot of money to act out their Wild West fantasies while interacting with lifelike robot “hosts.” The cast includes Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, and Jeffrey Wright.
We have an ending in mind; we’ve had it from the pilot. It’s very emotional, I think. I can’t tell you exactly when that ending will come…but I think for every season what we try to do is tell a chapter of the story that gives you closure and then opens a door to a new chapter…The overarching question of the series is, what will become of this new lifeform? So I feel it would be irresponsible to not have an end goal in mind.”
What do you think? Do you watch Westworld? Where do you see the series going?
