Westworld Season 3 Trailer – What Do You Need To Know
The highly anticipated HBO series Westworld is finally returning soon with its season 3, as the trailer reveals. It has been 16 months since the last season ended, and now “Westworld III” is ready for release on March 15. So, what are some of the important things we have noticed in the recent trailer that came out only a few days ago?
What Does Westworld Season 3 Trailer Mean?
The season 3 teaser trailer released back in San Diego Comic-Con focussed more on new characters, for instance, Aaron Paul’s Caleb. Having only Evan Rachel Wood‘s Dolores is the only established characters, perhaps this season will be a fresh one for the development of other character’s storylines.
In the second trailer, however, the Dolores kick things off with talking about each person having some role to play. “There are machines in this world, but not like us. You and I have no mother, no father. We’re alone. Outnumbered.” Dolores talks about exposing the true nature of this other world. However, the scene quickly shifts to Caleb holding a fallen Dolores in a dark night.
A revived Maeve comes on, giving Bernard hopes that she will be able to stop Dolores, who has escaped with five control unit pearls. In this new trailer, we actively see that Maeve has been tasked to stop the runaway, with specific orders to “find her and kill her”. In the season 3 trailer of Westworld, we will see Dolores teaming up with Caleb, some explosions and a final-looking showdown against Maeve.
Who Is Returning In The New Season?
Tessa Thompson, Rodrigo Santoro, Luke Hemsworth and Ed Harris are all back for Westworld Season 3, as the trailers show. Ed Harris’s Man in the Black looks to be in a frail and even seems to be in a captive position, however. Things don’t look good for the mystery man. Katja Herbers will return as well, but as Grace and not Emily.
The New Season Will Depart From Traditional Storyline
IndieWire reports that Westworld Season 3 will depart from its previous seasons’ storyline. There doesn’t seem to be any time jump (for now) and will continue directly from the ending of season 2. In fact, Jonathan Nolan claimed that this season will be “less of a guessing game and more of an experience with the hosts finally getting to meet their makers”.
Even the setting has changed, as you can notice that Maeve starts off in a World War II setup. However, the Nolan continues to defend the title of the series and how the season 3 storyline still links with the title. Here is what he said:
“Part of the story plays out in the Western United States, and that’s a thematic through-line in the show — the American West as a setting and an ethos. The idea of the West as a wild place, where just over the next hill or horizon there are no rules.”
Westworld Season 3 will consist of only 8 episodes, as opposed to 10 in previous seasons. We do not yet know if the series will continue for more seasons, however, the director does have a deal to make fourth and even fifth season of the show. Season 3, for now, is coming to HBO on March 15.
