Debuting in 2016, Westworld emerged as one of HBO’s highest-rated and talked-about series. But, there’s been a 21-month gap between the end of season two and the start of season three. Will that long absence help or hinder this show’s ratings? Will Westworld be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
An HBO science-fiction drama, Westworld stars Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Luke Hemsworth, Simon Quarterman, Rodrigo Santoro, Aaron Paul, Vincent Cassel, Lena Waithe, Scott Mescudi, Marshawn Lynch, John Gallagher Jr., Michael Ealy, and Tommy Flanagan. Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the thriller unfolds in a pricey, futuristic theme park, where visitors pay to act out their Wild West fantasies while interacting with lifelike robot “hosts.” In the third season, following the Westworld massacre, Dolores, Bernard, and an unknown host begin a new chapter — outside of the park.
