The series, which prefers a long gap in between seasons, has hit a halt, and not of its own making. With the ongoing pandemic, season four looks farther than ever, but in the meantime, there’s still plenty for fans to look forward to.
Here is everything we know about season 4.
Westworld season 4: When will we see it?
The one big question that comes along with a series getting renewed is, when will we see it? Given the special effects, a time-consuming concept, it takes longer than your regular average series to produce an entire season.
Season 2 of the show released in 2018, two years after its first season. The third season came out this year-2020, two years after the previous season. By that logic, one would presume that season 4 would be released in 2022 at the earliest.
It’s hard to know when season 4 will start shooting. The pandemic has halted all productions until it is safe to return on set again. Although Westworld is presumably still in the writing process for the newest season, so there is a chance that the production for the series won’t be affected by this. But at this point, we’re looking at an “anything can happen” scenario.
So, what will the upcoming season be about?
Season 4: Plot details
The upcoming season will bring a significant change following the end of the major conflict with Serac, as humanity will face a new enemy following his demise. It seems like the time for a new hierarchy is on the cards now that the humans have discovered that Artificial Intelligence exists and is manipulating them.
The fourth season is already looking great considering how season three ended. The season finale saw the Man in Black being killed and replaced by a host controlled by Halores.
Also ending her time on the show was Evan Rachel Wood’s character Dolores, who decided she wanted to give the humans their free will. She allowed Maeve (Thandie Newton) and Caleb (Aaron Paul) to erase all the data within Rehoboam completely. In doing so, Dolores sacrificed her existence, leaving only Dolores’ body with all of her memory and data stripped away from its core.
Season 4: The cast that will return
Even though Evan Rachel Wood seemingly is not coming back if we go by the script, there is still a chance that she will return to the show. The actress has shown interest in returning to the upcoming season and said that she is “not done with it.”
Other actors including Harris, Thandie Newton, Tessa Thompson and Jeffrey Wright are expected to return. Aaron Paul is will also be reprising his role. New names are also likely to join the cast, but so far no announcement has been made.
Show-runner Jonathan Nolan said in an interview recently that it is always his intention to reinvent the show every season. So, will the show continue on the road to a revolution or go back to visits the parks again, is a topic up for discussion till we get to witness it with our own eyes.
