Westworld canceled after four seasons | TV series

Despite hopes that Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy would get a season 5 of Westworld to fully wrap up the story – as HBO had made deals with the cast that will now be paid for – the ax fell on the sci-fi series.

Although it was launched to much fanfare in 2016 and had the channel’s highest viewership since real detectiveratings plummeted during season 3 and never really recovered.

The show, which starred Evan Rachel Wood, Thandiwe Newton, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Luke Hemsworth, Aaron Paul, Angela Sarafyan and James Marsden, returned for a pandemic-delayed fourth season this year and s ended on an ambiguity, rather than the giant cliffhanging, note.

“Over the past four seasons, Lisa and Jonah have taken viewers on a breathtaking odyssey, raising the bar every step of the way. We are immensely grateful to them, their immensely talented cast, producers and crew, and all of our partners at Kilter Films, Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television,” HBO said in a statement. “It was a pleasure to join them on this journey.”

“Manufacturing Westworld was one of the highlights of our careers. We are deeply grateful to our amazing cast and crew for creating such indelible characters and brilliant worlds,” said Nolan and Joy through their company Killer Films. “We have been privileged to tell these stories about the future of consciousness – both human and beyond. – in the brief window of time before our AI overlords forbid us to do so.”
