It’s been a long time now since we’ve heard any news on a Westworld season 4 premiere date — so what’s the reason for that? Is there a chance we’ll get the series back at any point in the near future?
We know that long hiatuses can be hard, especially when you think about this show. It is, after all, known for taking rather long breaks as it is! Things are different this time around because of the global health crisis. Even recently, the show had a production shutdown over a positive test; such is the way of things in this industry right now, and it will probably be this way for the near future.
At this point, it feels safe to go ahead and rule out a Westworld season 4 at some point this calendar year. In addition to taking a long time to film, this series also has a lengthy post-production process that goes along with it! We’re going to be waiting until 2022 at the earliest to see it back and because Succession is premiering this fall, there’s no reason for HBO to rush things along here. Make sure that you have the best product possible, especially since there are so many viewers who look through these episodes with a fine-toothed comb.
If there is one thing we’re expecting before the end of the year, though, it is at some sort of teaser suggesting what the future of the show could look it. We don’t expect anything particularly revealing, but it’d be a bit of a shame if HBO completely squandered their Succession platform by not hyping up one of their other hits. It’s the only thing that makes sense as a way to get the promotional train rolling.
