HBO renews ‘Westworld’ season 4, season 3 finale happening amid COVID-19 pandemic


The popular dystopian sci-fi TV drama, Westworld is officially coming back to the big screen.

The show’s network, HBO had made the announcement ahead of the finale of its third season. Currently, Westworld season 3 is still in its sixth episode.

Described as a theme park, Westworld was one of the most talked series since its initial release due to the show’s complicated storyline. With the series’ upcoming sequel,  Showrunners, Lisa Joy, and Jonathan Nolan will continue to thrill viewers with more actions and mind-bending plots.

Westworld season 4 release date and plot

Although the return of Westworld is already secured, HBO and the rest of the production team have not yet released any statements on what will happen in its fourth season.

Since Westworld season 3 is yet to conclude, the plot for the fourth season remains to be confirmed.  Viewers and curious spectators alike will have to wait on how the third season’s finale will turn up. President of HBO Programming, Casey Bloys stated,

“From the Western theme park to the technocratic metropolis of the near future, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed every twist and turn from the minds of master storytellers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. We can’t wait to see where their inspired vision takes us next.”

With the continued battle against the coronavirus and lockdown protocols,  the network has not yet confirmed the release of Westworld season 4. However, based on the interval of the time of the release of the three seasons, it takes two years before it can be broadcasted to the public.

Hence, Westworld season 4 will likely air sometime in 2022. Furthermore, due to the pandemic, the shut down of the movie industry have caused inevitable delays in the filming.

Who will reprise their role for the fourth season

As season 3 is nearing its final episode, there are already hints of which roles will reprise on the fourth sequel.

Evan Rachel who plays Dolores Abernathy is said to return on set, together with some of the original cast members, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, and Ed Harris. Aaron Paul who is a newcomer to the series is said to return for the fourth season.

Westworld season 3 finale to air amid COVID-19 pandemic

Unlike the finale of the Walking Dead season 10  which was canceled because of the pandemic, but will air quickly after the coronavirus lockdown, Westworld season 3 finale will be airing on its scheduled date, May 3, 2020.

Now in its sixth episode, the remaining three episodes of Westworld season 3 is said to focus on Los Angeles as its filming location. Westworld season 3 is currently streaming to 800,000 viewers, a small fraction of streaming traffic received from the HBO’s Go and HBO’s Now apps.
