Westworld creator addresses whether season 4 finale is show ending

The co-creator of Westworld has spoken out on whether or not the present is ending after final evening’s climactic season finale, hinting that there are extra tales to come back for the dystopian sci-fi drama.

It took greater than two years for season 4 to get right here, due largely to the pandemic slowing down manufacturing, but it surely was most positively well worth the wait, with followers applauding among the largest twists within the present’s historical past.

However, the story has escalated to such a determined level now that followers are questioning if Westworld could possibly be coming into its endgame, a query to which co-creator Lisa Joy had this response (by way of Deadline).

“Jonah [Nolan, co-creator] and I have always had an ending in mind that we hope to reach,” she started. “We have not quite reached it yet.”

That cryptic assertion could possibly be interpreted in any variety of methods, however it seems that there are hopes for no less than another season from senior members of the inventive workforce.

Ed Harris beforehand informed The Hollywood Reporter in July 2022 {that a} fifth and remaining season was deliberate.

He revealed: “I have no idea what they’re planning. We have one more season, which will start filming next April and May. I have no idea where that’s going to end up.”

It stays to be seen whether or not that may come to fruition, although, given Westworld’s appreciable funds and the present restructuring occurring at HBO’s guardian firm Warner Bros Discovery.

The merger has already seen the cancellation of Batgirl and stories of much less scripted programming for HBO Max, but it surely’s unclear at this stage the way it will affect the status US broadcaster – if in any respect.

Actor schedules could possibly be one other issue, with Westworld having to accommodate a high-profile solid that features Evan Rachel Wood, Thandiwe Newton, Jeffrey Wright, James Marsden, Ed Harris and Aaron Paul, amongst others.
