Westworld is by far one of the most anticipated series returning this year. Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the series made its debut in 2016. The first two seasons of the show received a warm reception from fans. With the series going on to win multiple awards in the process. The third season came out in May 2020 and helped the fans get through the lockdown period a little bit. The third season comes in with power-packed action.
The science-fiction drama has become a pop-culture legend. With fans waiting for the third chapter of the series dearly. The third season of the show had left the fans with a lot to think about. Making the return of Season 4 even more pivotal. With so much to discuss the upcoming season, lets jump right in.
Westworld Season 4: When is Releasing?
The third season of the show is all but a masterpiece of a season by Jonathan and Lisa Roy. The announcement about the fourth season was made even before the release of the third season in April 2020.
Filming for the third season kicked-off April 2019 and was released in May.
With the creators going all around the globe to finish the shows filming.
The third season was initially announced to release on March 15, 2020. However, unlike the other two seasons, West World wasn’t ten episodes long this time. Instead, Season 3 was eight episodes long. But that doesn’t mean that the story feels incomplete.
Anyway, the release date of the fourth season is a wild guess to make right now. However it takes one year to shoot and release the show, so the best guess would be sometime in 2022. Till then if you haven’t seen the show, just binge it.
Westworld Season 4: What is the Cast?
The cast for the upcoming season is not going to get altered much. With most of the fan favourite members of the cast set to return this time as well. Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright, shall all return as a part of the main cast.
In season 3, there were some new faces like Aaron Paul, Lena Waithe, Marshawn Lynch, Vincent Cassel, Scott Mescudi, Jefferson Mays, John Gallagher, Tommy Flanagan. All of them playing a crucial role in the plot of the series.
The returning cast of the show is Tessa Thompson, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Ed Harris, Luke Hemsworth, Simon Quarterman and Rodrigo Santoro.
Anyway, the cast for season 4 isn’t sure yet. So we may just assume by season third’s ending that the main cast will surely be coming back.
As Ed Harris is killed at the end of season 3 and replaced by a host, we will still see Ed Harris in the show, but will we see more of the Man in Black? That’s more of a question.
Westworld Season 4: What will be the story?
Talks about a Season 4 is already making circulation in different spheres. This makes it imperative for the creators to set up the story of the next season this time round. The creators have remained very secretive of their work. But it is sure that Season 4 will follow right after where the third season left off.
In the third season, the story was quite an eye-opener for Dolores. She makes her way out of West World into the real world in 2058. There she meets Caleb and comes to understand the treatment of artificial beings in the real world. On the other hand, Maeve escapes to Italy of the 20th century. There is a lot of mess to look after. We may also see Aaron Paul coming back in the fourth season playing his character Caleb. Nothing is concrete right now about the story of the fourth season.
In conclusion, the series by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Roy is one of the greatest sci-fi shows in the industry. And with each new season, the story gets more complicated and interesting to watch. With such a great cast and twists at every unexpected minute. This show is one hell of a watch.
