HBO’s Westworld Season 3 to Debut in First Half of 2020
Fans may not have to wait long for Westworld Season 3. In a recent interview with The Wrap during the Television Critics Association press tour Wednesday, HBO programming chief Casey Bloys dropped new details about the science fiction western television series. First, we learned that Westworld Season 3 will premiere in the first half of the next year. Then Bloys revealed that he is also talking with the series producers for a Season 4 and 5. Moreover, it won’t affect cocreator Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s other commitments.
“They are 100 percent hands on,” Bloys added. “We have deals with them for a potential fourth and fifth season. So the deal with them [at Amazon] is for, I believe, everything but Westworld. And they’re very committed to Westworld. So I’m not worried about losing their focus; they don’t lose focus.”
Additionally, when asked about what familiar faces we might see in the upcoming season, Bloys said: “If you didn’t see them in the trailer, I’m not gonna respond.”
Newcomers for the series include Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Lena Waithe (Ready Player One), with NFL player Marshawn Lynch, and Vincent Cassel (Eastern Promises). They join Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Luke Hemsworth, Talulah Riley as well as Rodrigo Santoro and Sir Anthony Hopkins in the series.
A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the birth of a new form of life on Earth, the Emmy-winning Westworld was created by Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy. The duo also executive produce with J.J. Abrams, Richard J. Lewis, Roberto Patino, Athena Wickham and Ben Stephenson.
Westworld comes from production companies Kilter Films and Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series is based on the film written by Michael Crichton.
