HBO has renewed the Emmy(R)-winning drama series WESTWORLD for a fourth season, it was announced today by Casey Bloys, president, HBO Programming.
“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,” noted Bloys. “We can’t wait to see where their inspired vision takes us next.”
WESTWORLD returned for its eight-episode third season Sunday, March 15. A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the question of free will, the show was created for television by Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy, who are also executive producers. Nolan directed the season’s premiere episode, which has surpassed nine million viewers across all platforms.
The third season finds Dolores recreating her host body and the host copy of the other androids, including Charlotte, a new host. Dolores wants new information about Rehoboam, the AI system at Incite. She looks for its creator Engerraund Serac.
Bernard, whom humans still believe to be one of theirs, is blamed for the massacre in Westworld so he takes on a new identity to understand Dolores’ plans. Serac uses Maeve to go after Dolores.
