Westworld Season 4: Release Date: Is Series CONFIRMED This Year!

It has been confirmed that the fourth season of ‘Westworld‘ will premiere in Summer 2022.

For the past two years, Westworld fans have been eagerly awaiting the fourth season. It had only just finished filming when the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic erupted in 2020, when season 3 premiered. As of yet, HBO hasn’t said when Westworld Season 4 would be available, despite returning to production under safety measures.

In an interview with Variety published on February 15th, HBO and HBO Max Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys discussed their next slate of projects. It was from this list that Bloys determined when Westworld Season 4 will be available.

Before the season 3 finale, HBO confirmed that the show would be renewed for a fourth season in April 2020. Due to a positive COVID-19 test, Westworld Season 4 production was temporarily halted in 2021. The programme returned to production in August, according to Deadline.

In fact, this isn’t the first time that there has been an extended hiatus from “Westworld.”

Delays were common even before the outbreak, and Westworld has been no exception. Creators Jonah Nolan and Lisa Joy took a break midway through the first season to reassess the show. The first season aired in the fall of 2016, and the second season aired in the spring of 2018.

There was a two-year break between season 2 and season 3. The two-year delay between Westworld Seasons 3 and 4 is becoming the norm rather than the exception.

Where will Season 4 of ‘Westworld’ takes off

What happened in season 3 of Westworld? It’s been a long journey for the Delos western theme park’s hosts and visitors. Two seasons were spent in a park where robot hosts learned that they were trained to entertain guests. Delos’ true intentions for the park and its inhabitants were revealed through multiple timelines, including the transformation of some former tourists.

At the end of season 2, the hosts were able to escape, and season 3 saw them living in 2052. When Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) discovered Incite and Rehoboam’s data archive, she was intrigued. When it comes to human behavior and decision-making, Rehoboam has seen it all and knows exactly what will happen in the vast majority of cases. To Rehoboam, the ability to make a different choice is crucial.

Season 3 ended with Caleb (Aaron Paul) being given control of Rehoboam by Dolores after she met him in the third season. After killing Serca (Vincent Cassel), Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) wiped out Dolores’s consciousness, leaving just a physical skeleton in the world outside. That leaves Wood’s participation in Westworld Season 4 in doubt, but nothing is impossible in Westworld.

After the season 3 finale, Nolan confirmed to Variety that Wood was still on the show, but that she would no longer be playing Dolores on the show. In the course of filming, fans have been able to get a glimpse of the set and see Wood’s dark hair.
