Get ready for more Westworld, HBO is bringing the hit series back for a fourth season!
With the Westworld season 3 around the corner, HBO has given the series a renewal for a fourth season. The third season saw a major creative revamp but continued to draw in a substantial amount of viewers. The Westworld season 3 premiere aired on March 15 and drew in over 9 million viewers across all platforms.
However, the series did see a drop in live viewers. According to Neilson, the season 3 premiere garnered 901,000 viewers in Live+Same Day viewing, which is a 57% drop from the season 2 premiere. The series is down about 50% in Live+Same Day viewership compared to last season.
The Westworld season 3 finale is set to air on May 3, and HBO is already looking forward to where next season will bring fans.
“From the western theme park to the technocratic metropolis of the near future, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed every twist and turn from the minds of master storytellers Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy,” said Casey Bloys, the president of HBO Programming. “We can’t wait to see where their inspired vision takes us next.”
Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, and Jeffrey Wright returned for Westworld season 3 and were joined by additional cast members Tessa Thomspon, Aaron Paul, Vincent Cassel, Lena Waithe, Scott Mescudi, Marshawn Lynch, John Gallagher Jr., and Michael and Tommy Flanagan. The series is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton film of the same name.
The show was created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy who also serve as executive producers. Other executive producers on the series include Denise Thé, J.J. Abrams, Athena Wickham, Richard J. Lewis, and Ben Stephenson. Kilter Films and Bad Robot Productions produce Westworld in association with Warner Bros. Television. Creator/executive producer Jonathan Nolan also directed the season 3 premiere.
