The enigmatic HBO Westworld series has been renewed for some time now for a third season. It will premiere on May 15, continuing the complex narrative of the story inspired by the original 1973 film. See the trailer.
What began as a series based on a futuristic, android-filled amusement park is scaling into a dystopian future. The trailer shows a chronology of events since the impeachment of the 45th president of the United States, a civil war in Russia and various natural disasters breaking out all over the world.
All of these events will culminate in the series’ narrative, which retains some of the characters fans are used to seeing as the Android Dolores and the enigmatic Man in Black. Season two ended to answer many questions but open many more.
Co-creator was inspired by the classic Blade Runner
Jonathan Nolan, one of the creators of the series, said great inspiration for the new season comes from the movie Blade Runner. This science fiction classic tells the story of a dystopian future where synthetic humans are created to work in colonies.
Like Blade Runner, Westworld explores the concepts of artificial intelligence, machine consciousness building, and free will. In the series, androids who live in the park are becoming aware of what they are doing and looking for a purpose in their life, creating a parallel between humans and their creations. So if you’ve never seen Westworld, it’s a highly recommended series.
