Westworld ‘s journey ends after four seasons.
HBO has canceled the series, a somewhat unexpected choice, given that we are talking about one of the flagship titles of the network.
which during its journey has collected 54 Emmy nominations (including one won for Best Supporting Actress, Thandiwe Newton).
No ending for the series
Recently, co-creator Jonathan Nolan had talked about the future of the series, his hope was that HBO would renew the show for a fifth and final season, which apparently will not:
A fifth and final season has always been in our plans. We are still talking about it with the network, we really hope to do it.
Words that had found the support of co-creator Lisa Joy:
Jonah and I have always had an ending in mind, and we hope we can get there. We haven’t quite achieved it yet.
In an official statement, HBO said:
Over the past four seasons, Lisa and Jonah have taken viewers on a shocking odyssey, raising the bar with every step. We are extremely grateful to them, along with their cast, highly talented producers and crew and all of our partners at Kilter Films, Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television. It was thrilling to join them on this journey.
Through their production company, Kilter Films , Nolan and Joy said:
Making Westworld has been one of the high points of our career, we are infinitely grateful to our extraordinary cast and crew for creating these indelible characters and these wonderful worlds. It has been a privilege to be able to tell these stories about the future of consciousness – human and not only – in the short window of time that separates us from the moment when our masters of artificial intelligences prevent us.A series that has been lost over time
It should be emphasized that the consensus towards the series had gradually decreased with the passage of time. Added to this is the willingness of Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav , intent on aggressively cutting the company’s costs. However, it seems that there are no economic issues at the basis of this cancellation.
