The upcoming third season of the American science fiction western television series Westworld (subtitled The New World) was announced by HBO in May 2018. Westworld, from executive producers Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy, and J.J. Abrams, returns for its third season this month. Here’s what to know so far about the upcoming season and what you need to know to catch up on the sci-fi drama.
WESTWORLD SEASON 3 WHEN WILL IT PREMIERE ON HBO?
If Westworld season 2 didn’t scramble your brain a little bit, we’d think you were some kind of up-to-no-good host ready to take on the world. The finale was pretty drastic, but we’re keen to see what comes next. HBO has announced that season 3 of Westworld will premiere on March 15, 2020. The reveal arrived with a cryptic teaser that lists several global “divergences”, including real-life events such as political protests in Hong Kong.
WESTWORLD SEASON 3 CAST: WHO’S IN IT?
We know that Dolores Abernathy (Evan Rachel Wood) and Maeve Millay (Thandie Newton) will likely return for a new series. The pair have spoken out about having equal pay with their male co-stars for the show and said that for Season 3 they will be paid the same as Ed Harris and Anthony Hopkins.
- Jeffrey Wright as Bernard Lowe / Arnold Weber.
- Tessa Thompson as Charlotte Hale.
- Ed Harris as William / The Man in Black.
- Luke Hemsworth as Ashley Stubbs.
- Simon Quarterman as Lee Sizemore.
- Rodrigo Santoro as Hector Escaton.
SEASON 3 STORYLINE?
“Westworld III” promises to be a departure from its first two seasons not just because of the absence of the Wild West theme park (the Westworld, if you will) but also because it will tell more of a linear story than the series is known for. And there won’t be a time jump — at least not to start, though the William epilogue certainly suggests otherwise, picking up directly after the events of Season 2.
“This season is a little less of a guessing game and more of an experience with the hosts finally getting to meet their makers,” Jonathan Nolan told Entertainment Weekly. Premise. The third season takes place immediately after events of the second season, with Dolores having escaped Westworld along with the cores of a few hosts, including Bernard’s.
