Westworld Season Three Launching in Mid-March

Westworld season 3 release date

HBO has just dropped a new teaser for the third season of Westworld, which is set to debut in March.

The trailer offers little in the way of concrete information, instead highlighting notable events in the history of the show’s world as an unidentified voice over talks about the chaotic nature of human progress.

The teaser ends with the revelation that the series will return on March 15, 2020. Season three will feature eight episodes, a reduction from the ten of previous seasons.

This new season will pick up where the previous one ended and continue to expand its scope. This time, Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) has arrived in the real world, in neo-Los Angeles, where she meets with a new character played by Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul. Meanwhile, Maeve (Thandie Newton) finds herself in a theme park modeled after World War II-era Germany.

In addition to Wood and Newton, Tessa Thompson, Jeffrey Wright, and Ed Harris are all set to return.

Westworld is based on and a kind of sequel to Michael Crichton’s 1973 film of the same name. The show follows a group of androids in a futuristic theme park as they acquire sentience and eventually rebel against their creators.
