Westworld Season 3 trailer: HBO sends the show into the unknown

Westworld | Official Season 3 Trailer | HBO

HBO’s Westworld ventures into a brave, new world in its third season, and the stakes have never been higher.

The season 3 trailer for Westworld arrived online Thursday in advance of the show’s return in March, and it offers a preview of the war to come between the android hosts — now free of the confines of the titular, high-tech amusement park — and the unsuspecting human world.

Over the course of the series’ first two seasons, the park’s androids achieved a form of sentience and eventually rid themselves of human control, staging an uprising that swept across the park and left more than a few human bodies in its wake. In the second season, several hosts managed to find a way out of the park, and the third season picks up in the aftermath of their departure from the park’s borders.

Along with chronicling the androids’ experiences in the human world, the season is also expected to introduce another new theme park — this time, with a World War II theme. The latest trailer offers a preview of some of the environments and tense events the new park holds for its visitors, whether android or human.

Season 3 of Westworld brings back many of the show’s regular cast members, including Evan Rachel Wood as Dolores, Thandie Newton as Maeve, Jeffrey Wright as Bernard, Tessa Thompson as Charlotte, and Ed Harris as William.

The series also adds a few familiar faces to the third-season cast, including Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul, Master of None actress Lena Waithe, Black Swan actor Vincent Cassel, musician Kid Cudi, and professional football player Marshawn Lynch.

Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and executive produced by the aforementioned duo along with  J. J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, and Bryan Burk, HBO’s Westworld series is based on the 1973 film of the same name that was written and directed by Michael Crichton. Westworld consistently ranks among the premium cable network’s most-watched shows. The series’ first season still holds the record as the network’s most popular first season of any original series produced by HBO so far.

Season 3 is scheduled to premiere March 15.
