Westworld Season 4: Everything To Know So Far

After the spine-tingling three seasons, HBO’s original” Westworld” will knock on your doors soon.

HBO’s sci-fi, adventure show, Westworld,  is one of the most awaited HBO’s originals. Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the series is inspired by the  1973 film of the same name by Michael Crichton. Few parts of the show are also based on the film’s 1976 sequel  Futureworld

As the title reflects, the story revolves around a fictional, technologically themed theme park named Westworld. The amusement park was hosted by androids who are programmed to fulfill the wildest fantasies of humans harmlessly. However, soon the situation went another way around.

10-episode season one debuted on October 2 and concluded on  December 4, 2016. The fans went crazy and showered their love with an immense appreciation for the show. The Critics praised it as well for its visual music, character development, and more. 

The series soon became the most-watched first season of any HBO original series ever. 

HBO has produced three mind-boggling seasons so far. Season 3 was concluded on May 3, 2020. And only a month later, HBO gave the green light to the fourth installment of the series in April 2020.

Let’s check out all the updates concerning Westword season 4.

The Cast of Westworld Season 4: Who will be back?

The showrunners have not unveiled the cast of the fourth installment so far. However, I have some guesses based on the finale of season 3.  

Well, we will probably meet the following characters in Season 4.

  • Thandie Newton as Maeve Millay
  • Luke Hemsworth as Ashley Stubbs
  • Tessa Thompson as Charlotte Hale
  • Rodrigo Santoro as Hector Escaton
  • Jeffrey Wright as Bernard Lowe
  • Ed Harris as the man in black
  • Simon Quarterman as Lee Sizemore
  • Aaron Paul as Caleb Nichols

There is a high possibility of the return of dead characters as well in the new host body. We might also see some new faces.

The Plot of Westworld Season 4: What to expect from it?

The creators are famous for reinventing the show every season. In season one, we saw the harmless android host work for the pleasure of humans. 

In season 2, the android host got the sentiments, became rebellious and killed several humans. And in season 3, android and humans were free in the same world. Now, what season 4 has?

Well, season 3 concluded by leaving several questions behind. What did Bernard experience in Sublime? Will Dolores return, or is she dead? Is Charlotte building an army? What does Maeve do next? Is William dead?

The showrunners have teased the fans by unveiling few details about the potential storyline of the fourth installment. Let’s see if we find answers to a few questions. 

The makers have hinted towards The Man in Black by asking the fans their thoughts about the Man in Black in season 4. Well, the post-credit scenes depicted Harloes killed Man in Black, and she replaced him with the host android. 

He further stated about the character of the man in black.

“[The Man in Black] winds up becoming this thing [a host] that he’s controlled for so long.

He further added, “And on a visceral level, I just can’t wait to watch Ed kill everyone.”

It means we will see more killing in the upcoming season. The creators will explore the character of the man in black.

If we talk about Dolares, she is really gone this time. Jonathan Nolan, one of the creators, confirmed it during an interview with Variety. 

The Release date of Westworld Season 4: When will it air?

The confirmation for season 4 came last summer. However, HBO has not officially announced the release date for the fourth installment so far. If we go by the release history, each season took approximately 18 months to arrive. 

Well, the creators have wrapped the filming for season 4, and it is at the post-production stage as of now. But that does not mean the show will arrive any time sooner. The post- production things will take time. Creating the required VFX will take time. I guess the show will hit the screen somewhere in the mid of 2022.
