Westworld season 2 primarily rebooted the complete present, transferring past the park and introducing a complete new world for characters to discover. Meaning you possibly can anticipate a brand new expertise with Westworld season three, and a brand new important character, too – performed by Aaron Paul. A brand new Westworld season three trailer arrived in the course of the SDCC panel, and you may glimpse it beneath.
On the finish of Westworld season 2, Dolores (Evan Rachel Wooden) managed to flee the park in a fashion so difficult that I gained’t even trouble to recount it right here. Simply know that she’s out. Which suggests the present has opened itself as much as new issues. Aaron Paul is now a part of the forged, and the primary teaser was principally a showcase for him, hinting that he is likely to be the brand new lead. That’s to not say previous forged members aren’t returning. Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, Tessa Thompson, Evan Rachel Wooden, and Jeffrey Wright are all again as effectively.
One factor you possibly can anticipate from this season: much less thriller field mayhem. “That is season is rather less of a guessing recreation and extra of an expertise with the hosts lastly getting to satisfy their makers,” co-showrunner Jonathan Nolan instructed EW. Season three may even decide up instantly after season 2. “We’re wanting on the aftermath of the bloodbath within the park,” co-showrunner Lisa Pleasure mentioned. “In any case they went via to get out of the park, Dolores lastly bought what she needed, so we needed to see how she interacts with the world and what her plan is. That’s part of the story we have been excited to inform.”
So if the collection now seems to be principally out of Westworld, does the title even make sense anymore? Nolan has a solution for that:
“A part of the story performs out within the Western United States, and that’s a thematic through-line within the present — the American West as a setting and an ethos…The thought of the West as a wild place, the place simply over the following hill or horizon there are not any guidelines. On that thematic degree, Dolores emerges to determine what occurred to the actual West. And the reply is: We paved the factor over, and civilization ultimately caught up with all these individuals who have been working away from it.”
I used to be principally a fan of season 2, however I’ll admit the previous couple of episodes started to develop a bit tiresome. Hopefully this new season works out higher.
Westworld season three debuts on HBO in 2020.
