Two years after the conclusion of season 3, HBO’s Westworld is finally back. I’ll be honest, I have zero idea where it left off. The show ran into the ground quickly, fueled by creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy getting way ahead of themselves and making a fairly simple concept nonsensical and unwatchable. What connection it had to the original 1973 movie feels like a distant dream.
But, apparently the show is doing well enough to soldier on, at least for one more season. The cast is still tremendous, led by Evan Rachel Wood, Thandiwe Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Aaron Paul, Ed Harris, Luke Hemsworth, Simon Quarterman, Vincent Cassel, Angela Sarafyan, Tao Okamoto, and many more.
Set to the sounds of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day”, the new teaser begins with robotic peacefulness rarely seen in Westworld. Of course, it doesn’t last long and soon a horrific, bloody, bug-filled chaos ensues.
Westworld season 4 hits HBO on June 26th.
