HBO Cancels Westworld After Four Seasons
We will not be getting a fifth season of Westworld. This new development is coming to light as HBO has recently canceled the sci-fi series as per reports from Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter.
Season 1 of the series premiered over the summer and it was wrapped up in august. Co-creator of Westworld, Lisa Joy told The Wrap that very month that she was hoping that the show gets a season 5 renewal.
She revealed to the entertainment news website that: “We had always planned on ending the series next season.”
How The Fourth Season of Westworld Ended
The fourth season of the sci-fi series ended on what many may consider a cliffhanger, with Christina who is a brunette-looking or look-alike version rather of blond Westworld protagonist Dolores transforming into what then seemed like the season 1 version of Dolores. And at the end, she hinted at a ‘final test’ against the backdrop of the Westworld theme park.
The very complex yet visually stunning series made its premiere back in 2016. And so far, it has accumulated 54 Emmy nominations along the way and nine wins, Deadline noted.
What HBO Has To Say about the Cancellation of the Sci-Fi Series
“Over the past four seasons, Lisa and Jonah have taken viewers on a mind-bending odyssey, raising the bar at every step,” HBO in a statement provided to Deadline stated. “We are tremendously grateful to them, along with their immensely talented cast, producers and crew, and all of our partners at Kilter Films, Bad Robot, and Warner Bros. Television. It’s been a thrill to join them on this journey.”
