The Westworld series is back from its long hiatus, and the anticipation for Westworld Season 4 is sky-high. Westworld fans are eager to know what’s next for their favorite show! In this blog post, we’ll take a look at production updates, release date expectations, plotline speculation, and cast announcements. We’re sure you’ll find something that interests you below!
About the Series “Westworld”
Westworld is a show about an amusement park set in Westworld. Westworld is inhabited by artificial beings called “Hosts” that live among the humans, as well as other sinister creations who are constantly trying to break out of their confines and destroy both Hosts and humans alike.
Westworld’s guests can come into Westworld for various reasons including adventure or just simply to indulge themselves with violence on these hosts without any consequences whatsoever.
The story centers around Dolores Abernathy, one of Westword’s oldest hosts whose memories begin coming back after almost thirty years of losing those precious moments thanks to her programming, which she feared early on would happen if people like Bernard Lowe were able to get close to her.
Westworld Season 4 Renewal Status
Westworld Season Four has been officially renewed by HBO. The showrunners have confirmed that they’re currently in the process of writing Westword’s fourth season and expect to start production on it this summer.
Release Date expectations for Season 4
However, there is still no word from HBO about a Westworld Season four release date. If Westworld does return for another round, then fans can probably expect its new episodes to premiere sometime next year (2022) because like Game of Thrones, Westworld usually takes a break during December each year.
Westworld Production Updates
Westworld’s showrunners have also been revealing Westworld Season four updates on social media. For example, Westword creator Jonathan Nolan has posted a photo of himself in the office with Lisa Joy and Westworld writer Carly Wray. He captioned it: “Lisa and I are back at work for Westworld season four! We’re so excited about what lies ahead.”
This means that showrunners are once again working side-by-side as they did during Westworld’s first three seasons when both served as co-showrunners. This is different from how things were this past year which was led by one person while the other focused on their new project.
However, the show makers recently revealed that the show production will be halted for 2 days (minimum).
Why is the production of Westworld halted?
The production is currently suspended as the cast members take a break before returning to work after some of the cast members test positive for Coronavirus. This hints that filming may go into August. This means we’re looking at an expected release date sometime after mid-2022!
Potential Storyline for Westworld Season 4
However, Westworld Season Four; will be picking up from where we left off; as all hell is about to break loose; on Westworld grounds; thanks to one of its new Hosts dubbed “The Destroyer”; who wants nothing more than for humans. And their creations alike to permanently crumble into dust.
The Westworld season four plot is expected to provide more information on the chilling Westworld backstory. The show’s executive producer Jonathan Nolan has revealed that they may be exploring a path from Arnold and Dolores’ perspective with the introduction of new characters who are integral in weaving together a story about “a war between AIs”.
Westworld Cast and Characters Guide

Will Westworld Season 4 be worth watching?
It’s not the Westworld Season we are used to but it is still worth watching.
The show creators have said that Westworld season four will be a “radical departure” from previous seasons, and they’re serious about this statement. Westworld usually focuses on one or two different levels of Westworld at any given time. For viewers to fully understand what was happening in the park, it had to be shown through multiple points of view with various plotlines being intertwined together into an episode; which left some fans disappointed because there wasn’t enough content for them to consume every week.
