Westworld Season 3 Details – The Westworld Creators Dropped a Hint About Season Three That Could Explain the Finale’s Twist
It hasn’t even been two months since Westworld Season Two ended and already I’ve forgotten what exactly happened to all the robots and their human friends. According to what I wrote in June, Dolores and Bernard are now adversaries who have finally escaped to the real world, where each of them are focused on preserving the race of hosts. Some other stuff happened, I’m sure, but that’s essentially the gist of it that we need going forward.
Because, yes, there will be a third season of this show, and creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have already begun dishing out hints about where it’s heading. As Jonathan told The Hollywood Reporter this week:
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. 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.
As we know in this show, the hosts don’t age. And that has allowed Westworld to use the same characters and actors over a plot that’s told over a span of 30 years of the park simultaneously. Now that they’ve escaped the park, this is indeed a bigger scope, considering this story could take place over hundreds or thousands of years.
Let’s talk also about that closing scene with Old William, in which William enters the Forge in some post-apocalyptic version of the park that looks like it’s been abandoned for many years. He runs into his daughter, who tells him, “This isn’t a simulation, William.” This is the park “or what’s left of it.”
Okay, so that should give you an idea of the timeline the Nolans are exploring in Season Three. We’re looking at potentially hundreds of years—or maybe more.
