About Westworld Season 4
Westworld is an HBO sci-fi series created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. The series has secured 9 Prime Time Emmy Awards out of 43 nominations which put it on the top shelf of HBO’S hit shows.
Since the successful departure of Westworld Season 3, fans have been eagerly waiting to see what else is in store for season 4 renewal. Considering how the show wrapped up its latest season finale, many viewers were left with various questions. Henceforth, this article is written to answer all of your questions according to the latest updates.
Westworld Season 4 Release Date
The HBO team revealed that the show is already officially licensed for its Season 4 renewal in April 2020. As a matter of fact, Westworld 4 is presumably in the writing process for the newest season; However, there are two main restrictions concerning the production process. Firstly, Westworld is known for its two-year gap delivery; thus, it will be a long time for season 4 to air since the previous season was released recently.
Second, the coronavirus pandemic has been hindering the filming for all shows including this one. This resulted in a delay; i.e., the fourth season shooting will not start until 2021 according to reliable sources. Given that these conditions would get better, then the fourth installment of Westworld is expected to begin airing episodes by mid-2022.
Westworld Season 4 Plot
In Season 3’s finale, Dolores stopped Serac and Rehoboam with the help of Maeve and Cable as she gave the humans their free will from godlike A.I. puppet master. By doing so, she sacrificed her existence while Charlotte began her own revolution with an armed man in black.
The show also ended with the death of William, aka the Man in Black. Taking all things into consideration, Season 4 will certainly explore the fate of Dolores Abernathy and the clues she left Bernard during the valley.
Westworld Season 4 Cast
Nothing official has been announced concerning who will be in Westworld season 4. Although it should be noted that Serac sadly did not make it in season 3. Also, Rachel Evan Wood, the lead actress playing Dolores, did not survive either. Nonetheless, the actress stated that she would love to return to the show, wishing this is not the end of the road for her role.
Yet, the executive producer, Jonathan Nolan, claims Dolores is rather definitively “gone,” which leaves everyone in a state of confusion. Though, given how things operate in this show, there might be a chance she could come back in future episodes. Besides that, everyone else in the cast from season 3 is expected to be back for the upcoming one in addition to few new arrivals and familiar faces.
Exciting Fan Theories About Westworld Season 4
Though season 3 was the most straightforward season, it still had few final twists in the end. In fact, there are two scenes that led viewers to make speculations. The first one is the extended sequence showcasing the death of human William’s death and the rise of Host-William, whereas the second showed Bernard leaving the Sublime in some distant future.
