Sadly, as of January 2022, Westworld season 4 does not have a confirmed release date. It’s good to know that filming took place in June 2021 thanks to Jeffrey Wright.
HBO shared teaser clips of upcoming episodes as part of its massive advertising video for streaming service HBO Max, so it appears the episodes will be released this year.
Seasons one, two, and three, which were released in 2016, 2018, and 2020, respectively, have a two-year gap between them.
Seasons two and three premiered in late March and early April, while season one was released in the fall. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for around that time, seeing as that’s the show’s current trend.
Who are the cast members of Westworld season 4?
The actors and actresses of Westworld have a better lot in life than the average person. When people are killed off in season 3, it’s not out of the question that they’ll reemerge in a new host body later on.
We already know for sure that some of our favorite actors will be returning thanks to the HBO sizzle reel. Thandiwe Newton plays Maeve Millay, and Jeffrey Wright and Aaron Paul play Bernard Lowe and Arnold Weber, respectively.
Other stars expected to return are:
- Tessa Thompson as Charlotte Hale / Dolores Abernathy
- Luke Hemsworth as Ashley Stubbs
- Simon Quarterman as Lee Sizemore
- Rodrigo Santoro as Hector Escaton
It’s deja vu all over again for Ed Harris. Thompson’s “Halores” killed the Man in Black, but he was replaced by a host under her control, which means Harris will be back for more in round four of the tournament.
“According to Newton, “I’m matched with Tessa [Thompson], I know. I don’t sure what they have in store for me. Hopefully, we’ll be able to inflict some legitimate harm.”
That being said, she’s clearly enamored with the scripts for season four.
“It’s so good, man,” Newton said (via ComicBook). “For me, no truly, for me, it’s got all the best elements from one, two, and three are here. It is so rich and there’s something about the pandemic.
“It’s not literally, but I just think it’s fed us all in a way, as our lives depend on art now in a different way. I mean, literally, our lives depend on art because art is being removed from us.”
As for Evan Rachel Wood, who played the original Dolores Abernathy, her future feels uncertain.
“I found out halfway through, or towards the end,” Wood said of her character’s fate on the Variety and iHeart podcast The Big Ticket.
“We really find out the arc of our characters episode by episode. We get a general idea at the beginning of each season; they tell us where our characters are at, what their mission is, and then go.
“Then we learn as we go. It’s one of the reasons why I think it’s challenging to work on, but also what makes it exciting,” she continued. “So [co-creator Jonathan Nolan] called me up and broke the news to me.
“He said that she 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.”
According to Nolan’s statement to Variety: “I can’t find Dolores. Evan Rachel Wood is one of our favourite actresses, but we haven’t started discussing the show’s future in public yet. But it appears to be completely different.”
However, this does not rule out the possibility of a future encounter with Wood.
“I think it’s important with a show in which death can be impermanent – these are robots, after all – to mark the occasion with Dolores,” said Nolan, adding: “That version of that character is gone.”
According to Deadline, Aurora Perrineau from Prodigal Son has joined the gang and will appear in at least five episodes.
And could a Hugh Jackman cowboy cameo be on the cards?
“You’re going to see some new worlds that I think are really fun and you’re going to see someone who I kidnapped from Reminiscence in a funny way,” Joy told Deadline.

What is the season 4 plot of Westworld?
Season four of Westworld, which could mark the final season for our favorite sentient machines, has been planned out by creators Joy and Nolan since the show’s inception.
As the fight against mankind nears its conclusion, all bets will be off and the final episodes of season four may expect even greater twists.
As previously reported, Christopher Nolan discussed the season three themes with The Hollywood Reporter, and these ideas may also apply to season four:
“I think it’s a radical shift. What’s compelling and appealing about these characters is that they’re not human. As we said in the show, humans are bound by the same loops the hosts are, in some ways even smaller,” he explained.
“You couldn’t expect human characters to withstand and survive the kind of story that we’re telling. The hosts have a different version of mortality, a different outlook.
“I think clearly with Dolores, as she’s laid out, there is a longer view here, a larger set of goals. They’re existential. They span eons. And that’s a fascinating level of story to engage in.”
A trailer has yet to be announced. If you don’t believe us, just wait for us to tell you. We’ll keep you updated on all the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
In the United States, Westworld airs on HBO in the United Kingdom, Sky Atlantic, and NOW are the only options.
