Westworld Season 4 Release Date, Plot - Will Westworld Come Back?

UniqueThis 13 October 8, 2021

If you've ever had the misfortune of following along with Esquire's Westworld coverage, you will know that the show is the harbinger of my pandemic nightmares. It once made me spend hours looking at robot gumball brains, wondering who the hell they belonged to, and exists mainly as an alleged television program that has branded the words Rehoboam, Sublime, and The Valley Beyond in my brain with a hot, scorching iron.

After Season Three of Westworld wrapped, I had been induced into a vegetative state where I no longer recognized or admitted that there is a show named Westworld on the channel we know as the Home Box Office, as if I was Bernard after one too many brain wipes, or a pre-radicalized Dolores Abernathy, whose only concern in life was whether or not the cows came home at night.

Now, apparently, there will be a fourth season of Westworld. Not only that, but Westworld is filming new episodes as we speak, wreaking havoc in New York City. Thanks to this news, I have had the great misfortune of awakening from my own Sublime. And since I am a human being with a job—the qualifications of which require that I write about Westworld—I have just taken the regrettable task of learning everything there is to know about Season Four so far, so I will now share with you, reader, everything we know.

When Will Westworld Return? Or Has It Already Returned and Someone Spilled Coffee on Your Brain Orb?

Unless your preferred method of self-torture is rewatching the episode where Rehoboam monologues for 45 minutes, you, my good friend, have been clean from Westworld for a little over a year now. Must feel nice. Enjoy it.

I hate to break it to you, but we'll probably see the next season sometime in late 2022. The new season is filming as you're reading this, which means that poor Evan Rachel Wood is in a trailer somewhere, sifting through pages and pages of robot dialogue, trying to remember who the hell's character her character is inhabiting.

Well, you know, I'm not sure! Normally, I'd tell you that the Season Three finale actually wrapped things up in a Sparknotable way. The Man in Black is a robot now, Caleb will definitely aid and embed in the murder of all mankind, Dolores Abernathy is dead but will probably return in another form (more on that soon!), and my man Bernard went on a vacation to the Sublime. So, again, Vegas would probably predict that Season Four will see the beginnings of the long-teased war between the hosts and the humans, but hey, I've been burned before. Let's kick it over to what the cast and creators—who seem to know just about as much as I do—have said about the show's future:

Thandie Newton (Maeve Millay): "I have no idea what they have planned for me. I'm teamed with Tessa [Thompson], I know. Hopefully, we can do some rightful damage."

Jonathan Nolan (Series Co-Creator): "[The Man in Black] winds up becoming this thing [a host] that he's controlled for so long... And on a visceral level, I just can’t wait to watch Ed kill everyone."

Jeffrey Wright (Bernard Lowe): "Bernard steps into The Sublime and at some point he steps out of it, it seems with a bit more information than he had previously. And perhaps with a bit more clarity than he’s previously enjoyed. Now, the question of when it is that he comes out, I think, is a very simple one. I think we find him emerging from The Sublime after the pandemic has passed [Laughs]. He’s come out of that thing fully vaccinated, OK, and ready to live a new and more free existence going forward. Where he’s going, we don’t necessarily know, but he’s different than he was before he left."

(Serious question: Are you OK, Jeffrey Wright? Blink twice in S4 E1 if you need help.)

Evan Rachel Wood (Dolores Abernathy): "[Nolan] said that [Dolores] was going to die. He was very blunt about it, and slightly cryptic about other questions I had, but confirmed that yes, the Dolores that we know is gone."

Welp, wouldn't you know it! Westworld has taken its talents to New York City, and Dolores is already back. With a new hairdo, no less. Paparazzi caught her waltzing around the Highline, because robots like nature too. Photos also show Hale enjoying the city, so it's possible that the robots are visiting Delos offices in the Big Apple. Whose brain orb do you think is taking up real estate in New Dolores? Do you care?
