Fans feared that Evan Rachel Wood will no longer be a part of Westworld season 4. However, producers said that she will still appear in the next season.
According to producers, Westworld season 4 will still likely bring in Evan Rachel Wood as a regular cast member. However, she could play a different character when the show returns on HBO.
Wood played Dolores Abernathy in the first three seasons of the series. In the last episode of the third season, Dolores erased herself from existence. This essentially killed off the character in the show.
During her stint on the sci-fi series, Wood received critical acclaim for her portrayal of Dolores. She was such a critical darling that she earned two Emmy nominations for playing the character.
Westworld season 3 finale recap
Last week, Westworld season 3 ended with a bang after Dolores successfully erased the powerful artificial intelligence Rehoboam. According to a recap, Dolores’ actions will cause major chaos in the Westworld universe.
In the finale, Dolores convinced rival Maeve (Thandie Newton) to help her take down Serac and Rehoboam. They then found out that Rehoboam had been controlling Serac all along.
On the other hand, Cal (Aaron Paul) discovered more details about his past. Based on the flashbacks, he used to be a soldier in a U.S. government training program. He realized that Dolores chose him because she believed that he would make good choices.

What to expect in Westworld season 4
The cast and crew of Westworld have remained mum on what is in store for the next season. Based on what happened in Westworld season 3, a few fans have theories about what could happen.
It looks like Maeve and the Dolores/Hale character (Tessa Thompson) will be central to the fourth season’s plot. Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) and Cal may also get expanded storylines in the next season.
Westworld season 4 will hit HBO either in 2021 or 2022. Viwers can stream Westworld season 3 on the on-demand service HBO Go or the upcoming streaming service HBO Max.
