Robot drama Westworld’s first two seasons were massive strikes for HBO, and while it is not quite the’next Game of Thrones’ that everyone’s been waiting for, it’s undeniably a victory.
The third season is airing now where do you see it, when is the finale, and will it return for a fourth?
When does Westworld season 3 finale air?
Season three of Westworld is airing with episodes Monday falling in the US Now, and in the United Kingdom on Sky and every Sunday night on HBO TV every.
The season 3 finale will air on 3 May in the united states, meaning most other countries get it from 4 May.
What about season 4?
HBO has confirmed that season 4 of Westworld is with the creative team of Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan back accountable, on the way. We do not know when it will air, however – the series is tough to make as is, and with the complications of this coronavirus epidemic to take into consideration it is probably a safe bet that it will be a longer wait than 12 weeks for more Westworld.
Where can you watch it?
Westworld is created by HBO, so that is where you have got to see it if you are in the united states. For the UK, as with most large HBO shows, so it airs on Sky Atlantic.
If you don’t have Sky already that means you’d need to sign up for one of its TV packages to watch the show live, however, there’s another (cheaper) way: Now TV. This streaming service boasts Sky articles – including Westworld – so you’ll be able to watch Westworld season 3 if you want as the show airs, and the Entertainment Pass prices just #8.99 per month, using a 7-day free trial.
Now TV also often has the first two seasons of Westworld accessible to flow, though availability does change, in the time of writing both can be found – check here to understand what’s available at this time and see it yourself.
Watch the trailers
HBO dropped the first teaser for season three just before the Game of Thrones finale, and it is a bit different from what we’re used to from the show so much:
Then there is a fictional ad for a tech firm that seems to be setting up both plot for the series the Incite Anthem, and ARG promo campaign to operate around the launch. It does not give much away, but the Incite website has an email sign-up that can result in more clues.
What can we expect from season 3?
A massive amount isn’t known by us about the third period of the show, but we have a couple of ideas. Spoilers for the first two seasons follow along from here.
How many episodes will there be?
There are just eight episodes in total down in the ten in each of the two seasons.
Which characters will be back?
It seems like the majority of the cast will probably be back in action – at least those whose personalities survived (or could be reconstructed ).
The conclusion of year 2 left Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, and Tessa Thompson’s personalities away from the park so it seems a safe bet those three actors are returning. Meanwhile, the post-credit sting (you did stick around after the credits did not you?) Demonstrated that Ed Harris and Katja Herbers’ characters both have parts to play also.
Of course the series has not stopped before, although Nearly any character got killed off. Dolores stole a host’brains’ if she left the park, and has access to a body, so it stands to reason that she will be bringing a fan favorite back. We would be shocked if Thandie Newton doesn’t return as Maeve, but past that it is anybody’s guess.
Another character likely to reunite is Luke Hemsworth’s security leader Stubbs, who surprisingly revealed that he too is a host since he let Dolores/Hale from this park – no doubt we’ve got to see next season.
The big question mark right now is Anthony Hopkins, whose playground creator Robert Ford was killed in season one, but brought back a couple of times as an electronic version of himself. There is no word yet on whether HBO will be keeping him around, or if Ford is gone for good.
Are there any new characters?
So far we’ve had three brand new (and very exciting) cast members confirmed. The first is of Breaking Bad celebrity, Aaron Paul. Thanks to this very first trailer, above, we now know that he’ll be playing with Caleb, a human construction worker out in the’real world’ who is also caught up in crime, together with Master of None star Lena Waithe, among the series’s other significant additions. It looks like they’ll end up functioning with/for Dolores one way or the other.
The next huge piece of casting is French star Vincent Cassel, but for the moment we do not know anything whatsoever about who he will be enjoying. He looked like he might be playing a Delos exec, also seemed for an instant in the Comic-Con trailer, but we won’t know for sure.
What’s the story?
Right now, naturally we don’t know much, but we can speculate based on the trailers, the next season finale, and a few comments in the showrunners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan.
As we said above, the finale abandoned accompanied by another host played by Tessa Thompson and Jeffrey Wright’s Bernard outside in the actual world, Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores. This is but it is not clear if it comprises a copy of Dolores’s head, or is used to hold the mind of a different character.
“The question of who’s who and what we’re looking at is something we are excited to play,” Nolan said of the installation. “We’re eager to withhold a little from the audience but… it is complicated.”
We are aware that Dolores will be attempting to take humanity from the inside (presumably with the help of Aaron Paul and Lena Waithe’s personalities ), while Bernard will probably be playing some type of moderating effect on her behalf, which might develop into blatant resistance as the season continues. Additionally, it looks like Bernard will be returning to the parks to find someone to help take on Dolores -.
Nolan and Joy have confirmed that the majority of the period takes place outside the park, so expect this to be the main storyline.
“It’s been a very long build-up to acquire beyond the park,” Nolan explained, “and we are incredibly excited about everything looks like and sounds like and what exactly our hosts discover out there.”
That won’t only be large cities. Dolores will eventually find her way into the west, and the show will explore the differences between the dream version and its vision of the true thing.
“Part of this narrative plays out in the Western United States, which is a thematic through-line from the show – the American West as a setting and an ethos,” Jonathan Nolan told Entertainment Weekly. “The idea of the West as a crazy spot, in which just over the next mountain or horizon there are no rules. On this level, Dolores appears to determine what happened to the West that is real. And the answer is: We paved the thing over, and civilization finally caught up with all those people that had been running away from it”
However, do not expect the show to leave Westworld (or other parks) behind completely. Nolan pointed out that”not all of our favorite characters have managed to escape yet,” so it’s safe to see we’ll see a bit more of Westworld itself, and perhaps more glimpses of another Delos parks – it seems an awful lot like we are going to be visiting Naziworld, which will be precisely as grim an idea as we are utilized to from this series.
Ed Harris’s Man in Black is somewhat more tricky. Near the conclusion of the finale we see him onto a stretcher – so we understand he will return to civilization to take care of the park’s collapse, and resides. But post-credit sting revealed something else completely: a bunch version of himself, made far in the future, and working through the ruins of the playground where he undergoes a fidelity’ meeting with a bunch version of his daughter.
