What To Expect From Westworld Season 3

HBO’s Westworld season 3 is happening, but when will it release? The Westworld TV show is one of HBO’s biggest hits and is their long-term replacement for the soon-to-be-ending Game of Thrones. Westworld, which debuted back in 2016, has received great acclaim for its stunning visuals, approach to A.I., and twisty stories, which will undoubtedly continue in season 3.

Based upon Michael Crichton’s movie of the same name, Westworld takes place at the titular park, where guests can intermingle with the robotic “hosts” and live out whatever Wild West fantasy they wish, no matter how dark or twisted. Westworld season 2 released back in April 2018, with Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s show leaving things nicely placed for additional Westworld stories.

It’s been off the air for a while now, and although fans will have to wait a bit longer for Westworld season 3, it’ll be exciting when it returns. But what can fans expect from Westworld season 3? What’s the story going to be, and who’s joining the cast? Westworld has only started to scratch the surface of its world and themes, and there’s a lot more to come in season 3 and beyond.

Last updated: April 15, 2019

Westworld season 3 doesn’t currently have a release date, although we do know it won’t be in 2019. Filming was expected to get underway on March 25 and is currently scheduled to last for around 27 weeks, with production expected to end in October. While that does mean that, like in 2017, there’ll be another year without new Westworld episodes, it does leave Westworld season 3 well placed to return in 2020. This was confirmed by HBO.

Filming for season 2 didn’t begin until summer 2017, and despite delays, it was able to hit an April 2018 release. To that end, there’s more than enough time for Westworld season 3 to meet a similar slot in April 2020. April is typically when HBO releases Game of Thrones, and they’ll need something to replace that. As with last year, Westworld season 3 is the logical choice.

While few details have been revealed about Westworld season 3’s story, the ending to season 2 did leave things tantalizingly poised. The Reddit-baiting season 2 finale offered up a number of twists and turns that will be explored in Westworld season 3. Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) has smuggled Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) out of the park and into the real world. Along for the ride is someone in the body of Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson), although it’s unclear who. Maeve (Thandie Newton) ostensibly sacrificed herself to save the hosts, but she’ll return in Westworld season 3 as well. And then there’s the final stinger with William (Ed Harris), which takes audiences far into the future.

Westworld season 3, then, will have to pick up all of these plotlines. It’s going to venture into the real world, but also show viewers more of that much further along timeline. And, on top of that, there are still a number of parks just waiting to be revealed. The showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have also promised we’ll see a “radical shift” in the story, which fits with those elements mentioned. Even with all that, there’s a chance there’ll be less Westworld when it returns, with a recent report suggesting Westworld season 3 will have only eight episodes instead of the usual 10.

It’s expected that the vast majority of leading cast members will return for Westworld season 3. That includes Wood, Wright, Newton, and Harris, who together serve as the leads of the show. Wood and Newton have both been vocal about their return, as they’ve secured new deals that will see them have equal pay to their male co-stars. Tessa Thompson is also expected to return. One actor who isn’t likely to feature in Westworld season 3 is Jimmi Simpson, who portrays young William, with Simpson previously suggesting that story’s no longer a focus. It’s also unclear whether or not Anthony Hopkins will make another return as Dr. Robert Ford.

It’s quite likely that more Westworld season 3 casting announcements will be made once production is fully underway, but we do already know two big names joining the cast for Westworld season 3: Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul has signed on for a major role, although who (or what) he’s playing is being kept under wraps for now. Ready Player One and Master of None star Lena Waithe is also joining Westworld season 3 in an unknown role. Furthermore, Antonio Banderas is being eyed for a villain role; however, that has yet to be made official. Regardless, Westworld season 3 is shaping up to be yet another huge season.

HBO Confirms Westworld Season 3 Won’t Premiere Until 2020

Westworld season 3 won’t premiere until 2020, HBO has now confirmed. Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy and based (very) loosely on the 1973 Michael Crichton film of the same name, Westworld was a huge hit for HBO following its premiere in 2016. Largely set within a futuristic, Wild West-themed amusement park populated by androids known as “hosts,” Westworld follows a select group of the park’s guests and staff as they gradually come to realize that the hosts’ intelligence is far more advanced than it should be.

While Westworld season 1 was certainly well-received, its complex narrative and multiple time frames compelled viewers to pay close attention for fear of getting lost within the show’s literal and figurative mazes. Season 2 doubled-down on this approach, introducing more real-world scenes, multiple timelines, different versions of characters and several brand new parks. The complexity of Westworld‘s second season didn’t draw as much favor as its debut outing however, and many accused the series of being abstract for the sake of it, rather than to serve the story. Westworld‘s showrunners have since suggested a different approach will be taken in season 3, and Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul has also been cast in a major role.

However, fans will have to wait a while longer before seeing the continuation of the Westworld story, as HBO has now confirmed (via Deadline) that the show’s third season won’t premiere until 2020. While that’s a long break between seasons, it won’t be the first such lengthy break Westworld fans have had to endure.

Given that there was approximately a 16-month wait between Westworld seasons 1 and 2, its perhaps fair to assume that most viewers weren’t expecting a quick turnaround with season 3. That said, the confirmation of a 2020 premiere means that the gap will be even longer this time, with fans looking at an 18-month hiatus at least between the season 2 finale and season 3 premiere. It’s perhaps somewhat strange that this additional gap comes despite previous reports that season 3 would actually feature less episodes.

The size and scale of Westworld perhaps explain why such an extended production period is necessary. The series is one of the most visually impressive TV properties in recent memory and between the characters, music, story and location, Westworld‘s attention to detail is second to none. On the other hand, it could be argued that the long breaks between seasons contribute to the criticism that Westworld can be overly-complicated. Often, Westworld relies on viewers remembering small moments from previous episodes, or indeed previous seasons, and long periods offscreen are a huge hindrance in remembering these key elements. If a pre-return catch-up binge wasn’t a necessity ahead of season 2, it certainly will be when season 3 finally arrives.

Westworld Season 3 Adds Lena Waithe in Mystery Role

HBO adds Lena Waithe to the Westworld season 3 cast. Last September, the science fiction western series cast Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul in a main role, while Antonio Banderas may potentially appear in a villain role, according to reports.

In 2014, Waithe co-produced the dramedy feature Dear White People. Directed by Justin Simien, the film received numerous accolades and was adapted into a Netflix series of the same name. For Netflix’s Master of None, Waithe wrote the season 2 episode “Thanksgiving,” for which she become the first African-American to win a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. While Waithe has acted in series such as Transparent and This Is Us, along with the aforementioned Netflix productions Dear White People and Master of None, she’s also the creator of Showtime’s The Chi; a drama series about characters living in the southside of Chicago. The Chi season 1 aired from January to March 2018, and The Chi season 2 premiered on April 7. Waithe was born and raised in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles to pursue career opportunities.

Per EW, Waithe has been cast in Westworld season 3. At this point, the details are unclear, and the series isn’t expected to return until 2020. Westworld is based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 novel of the same name, and concluded its latest 10-episode run last June. Westworld season 3 will reportedly consist of fewer episodes, and began filming last month. Last August, showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy promised a “radical shift” for Westworld season 3, this coming after Westworld season 2 had been criticized for being overly complex with multiple timelines, On Westworld, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, and Jeffrey Wright have main roles, along with James Marsden and Tessa Thompson. 

In 2014, Thompson and Waithe collaborated for the original Dear White People film, which created more industry opportunities for both women. Thompson went on to deliver acclaimed performances in Ava DuVernay’s Selma, Ryan Coogler’s Creed, and Taika Waititi’s MCU film Thor: Ragnarok. Meanwhile, Waithe became a staff writer on the Fox series Bones. In 2018, Thompson and Waithe reunited for Netflix’s Dear White People season 2, as they appeared in the episodes “Volume 2: Chapter V” and “Volume 2: Chapter X.” Now, they’ll collaborate once again for Westworld season 3. 

While Game of Thrones and Barry are HBO sensations for completely different reasons, Westworld hasn’t quite found its place after two seasons. And though the casting of Paul will organically attract loyal fans of the actor, Westworld’s collective performances don’t seem to be the main issue. Just as showrunner Jonathan Nolan and brother Christopher Nolan are known for creating complex narratives, a writer-producer like Waithe excels at telling complex stories based in reality. For now, though, it appears that she’ll be in front of the camera for Westworld season 3, rather than working on new scripts.

Exclusive Westworld Video Explains The Truth Behind Delos & The Show’s Theme

Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the creators of HBO’s Westworld, explain the idea behind the show’s theme in an exclusive video from the season 2 Blu-ray and 4K UHD release. The reimagining of Michael Crichton’s pre-Jurassic Park theme-park-run-amok story has taken on a distinct life of its own on the premium cabler, one that, for some, makes watching the show a much less passive experience. That is, of course, in reference to the many fan theories that pop up online from week to week while the show airs. It’s an interesting corollary, one that is a direct result of the show’s intentional obfuscation of certain plot details and use of multiple timelines to tell its story. 

But while the show’s efforts to make a mystery out of its season’s respective story line turns each episode into weekly events, a meeting of the “minds” (mostly on Reddit) if you will, that particular storytelling formula raises a certain question of its own — namely: What is Westworld ultimately about? The show’s creators have been open about discussing the ideas behind the series’ structure and plotting, and they’ve even offered up numerous postmortems to clarify or confirm certain goings-on in the series itself, and here Nolan and Joy offer up a fairly succinct idea as to what the show is ultimately trying to say.

In an exclusive clip from the special features for the Westworld season 2 home video release, the show’s creators offer up their take on what Delos’s grand plan is for the company’s tech ( i.e., the Hosts) and how that can be filtered down into an understanding of what the series is trying to say about how humankind as a whole. Check out the video below:

Nolan’s explanation as to what Westworld is getting at makes for an interesting talking point, especially with regard to the major revelations from season 2. Those revelations, that Delos was trying to turn humanity (or the ultra-wealthy, anyway) into Hosts, not the other way around, and that the Man in Black, aka William (Ed Harris or Jimmi Simpson, take your pick) came very close to realizing that potential by recreating James Delos (Peter Mullan) again and again for decades, helped bring some clarity to the show’s otherwise labyrinthine plot line. 

Where the show will go from there is anyone’s guess, but Nolan asking the question “Do we last? Or do our creations eventually leave us behind?” offers some idea of what the bigger picture of the series will be. How that will impact season 3 remains to be seen, but for fans of the show’s mystery box appeal, it should offer plenty of opportunities for weekly online theorizing.

Westworld Season 3 Casts Aaron Paul as Series Regular

Breaking Bad veteran Aaron Paul has joined the cast of HBO’s Westworld for season 3. The sci-fi TV show started out as a small screen re-imagining of Michael Crichton’s 1973 film about a futuristic adult-theme park gone rogue, but has since taken on a life all its own. Westworld season 2 only just aired this past spring (two years after its first season premiered) and – depending on who you ask – was either an ambitious attempt to seamlessly weave together multiple plot threads set in different timelines… or an unnecessarily convoluted exercise in trying to outsmart TV viewers in the age of Reddit fan theory forums.

Either way you cut it, Westworld is one of the more narratively complicated shows on television right now and will undoubtedly continue to be just that when it returns with its third season sometime within the next 1-2 years. Showrunners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan have described Westworld season 3 as being a “radical shift” – albeit, one that will continue to explore the lives of the Hosts that reside within the eponymous park in new and (hopefully) exciting ways.

According to Deadline, Paul will be playing a new series regular on Westworld season 3 – though whether he’s a human, a Host, or a Host who mistakenly believes themselves to be a human, remains to be seen. Since his days playing Jesse Pinkman, the actor has found room for a handful of movie roles in-between his guest-starring stint on the animated BoJack Horseman comedy series and his recurring role on the Hulu drama The Path (which finished its run this past spring). Paul will continue to build his TV acting resume with his upcoming roles in not only Westworld, but also the Apple anthology series Are You Sleeping?.

Westworld left some tantalizing story threads dangling in its season 2 finale, including a post-credits scene revealing that William aka. The Man in Black (Ed Harris) will finally become a Host himself, at some point in the show’s future. Meanwhile, although the Host rebellion within Westworld has been quelled for the time being, the season 2 finale indicated that it won’t be long before Hosts like Maeve (Thandie Newton) are up and running again… and who knows what they will remember, upon their return. If that wasn’t enough, the season ended with Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) escaping the park disguised as Westworld boss Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson) and bringing several Host control units with her, Bernard’s (Jeffrey Wright) included.

While it’s possible Paul will play a new human addition in Westworld season 3, he could just as well end up playing one of the many Westworld Hosts (or a Host from another park) that viewers haven’t been introduced to yet. He could even be playing a brand-new Host that’s incorporated into the Westworld park to serve as the replacement for Teddy (James Marsden), who may be permanently gone after passing through The Door in season 2… or not. Whatever his role winds up being, Paul is very much a welcome addition to HBO’s mind-bending murder robot series.
