The HBO show producers for Westworld officially announced on April 22 that the show will be renewing for a fourth season.
The creators of the show Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan has previously told Variety that they wanted and hoped that they get at least one more season for the show to wrap up the story of the Westworld and possibly more. “We can’t wait to see where their inspired vision takes us next”, said the HBO programming president Casey Bloys.
The new season is said to have new creative direction and a new aesthetic, after the last season when The Hollywood Reporter spoke with the co-writer of the show Denise about what’s next for the show, the production released a teaser for the next season with a new aesthetic, theme and a feel.
“We felt we had an open invitation to play around, especially at this moment where TV is reinventing itself constantly, to have a show that reinvents itself season after season”, Nolan said. “…So, the idea that next season will feel different and distinct in genre from the previous seasons? Yes, that’s absolutely part of the structure of the show.”
WestWorld Season 4 Plot
The show is not for the light-hearted, the story, sets, and visual effects require an enormous investment.
The devastating news that crushed the fans was when the show writers confirmed that the character of Dolores is dead. “We saw Dolores perish. We saw all of her memories painfully erased…I do think it’s the right time to say goodbye to this Dolores.”
The word ‘this’ in the statement is a hint that Westworld might get her back from the dead as the show is famously known for getting the dead characters back to life. So, there is a high chance that a Dolores will come back, she might not be in the original character as the previous seasons, but she might be in different forms.
Nolan added, “That character is gone. We love working with Evan [Rachel Wood, who plays Dolores]. But we’re a long way out from talking publicly about what that fourth season looks like.”
