After the tremendous end of season 4, leaving a sense of hope behind, Westworld season 5 is already, and here is everything we know about the show yet.
Westworld season 4 has completely changed the show’s perception after its terrific and unexpected turn in the finale episode, which broke all the previous rules. The latest season of HBO’s (very) vague Michael Crichton adaptation of Westworld charts the extinction of humanity over 23 years, where Westworld has traveled a long journey after its excessively bold season 1.
Only a small number of resistance fighters are left after Tessa Thompson’s Charlotte Hale/Dolores host infects the populace with a parasite to take control of humanity. While an amnesic version of Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores rediscovers her real self, the protagonist hosts Bernard (Jeffrey Wright), Maeve (Thandiwe Newton), and Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) support the rebellion.
In the season 4 conclusion of Westworld (“Que Será, Será”), Bernard reiterates his earlier assertion that humanity could no longer be saved from extinction; by the time the credits roll, both species had perished. The few remaining humans are assigned a limited life expectancy by Dolores, who is fully awakened once again, and every host is either down or eliminated. Granted, it’s not the most upbeat ending, but Westworld boldly foreshadows the future by implying that the end of one world signals the beginning of another.
Although the show has been entertaining viewers since 2016, Westworld’s finest content-delivering approach has won hearts after the success of season 4 compared to Seasons 2 and 3, which didn’t perform well, and “Que Será, Será” will unavoidably leave viewers wondering what happens next. Here is all we currently know about Westworld season 5.
Is Westworld Season 5 Coming?
HBO hasn’t formally announced the release of Westworld season 5 until now. By looking at decreasing audience numbers, there’s no certainty the announcement will ever happen. Still, the outlook is encouraging. In a July 2022 interview with THR, Man in Black actor Ed Harris stated that he anticipated starting production on season 5 in April or May 2023.
The Westworld season 4 ending expressly lays the ground for another season. While Westworld season 5 is supposed to happen, the tragic climax of season 4, which included Dolores hinting at the potential of a “new world,” may serve as the series’ ultimate conclusion. There have undoubtedly been stranger places to discontinue TV series.
When is Westworld Season 5 going to Release?
As per the previous season schedule, Westworld started production around June 2021 and was released in June 2022. However, if we take an estimate according to Ed Harris Calendar, Season 5 seems to be released in April 2024 after taking a longer gap than the previous ones.
Will the Season 5 be the Finale Season?
All indications point to Westworld season 5 being the final one if it happens. Dolores suggests that season 5’s journey in the Sublime will end in Westworld by referring to her new plan for humanity as one last test when she says it is her last. Ed Harris stated in the interview mentioned above that Westworld has “one more season,” but in reality, the show’s current audience numbers certainly wouldn’t let for much more.
What will be the storyline for Westworld Season 5?
The Man in Black’s host causes the end of conscious existence in Westworld season 5. An uprising of human savagery wipes out both species, and even if some rebel forces, including Caleb’s daughter, managed to flee the bloodshed, Dolores reveals that they, too, will die a few months or years later, and humanity is no more. Dolores decides to use her memories of humans to “test” the species within the Sublime, which is the objective Bernard spent all of Westworld season 4 seeking.
To this end, she recreates the original Westworld park. The majority of Westworld season 5 will probably occur in this theme park simulation while Dolores investigates the viability of humanity. However, it is unclear exactly how she will reach that conclusion.
Which characters are expected to appear in Westworld Season 5?
By the time Westworld season 4 finishes, nearly everyone has passed away. The unfortunate hosts are secure in the Sublime, while others are either temporarily gone (Maeve, Stubbs), permanently annihilated (William, Hale), or both.
However, there are no restrictions on which cast members may appear because Westworld season 5 will reportedly take place inside a computerized version of the Westworld park created by Dolores from The Sublime. Anyone Dolores recalls can be created artificially, including all of Westworld’s essential characters.
