Westworld returns for Season 3 next month on Fox Showcase

The critically acclaimed sci-fi drama series Westworld returns for a third season that is more enthralling and timelier than ever before next month.

The Emmy-nominated series about the dawn of artificial intelligence and the birth of a new form of life on Earth features new series regulars Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Vincent Cassel (Black Swan).

Following the aftermath of last season’s Westworld massacre, Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) begin a new chapter – outside of the park – exploring the “real world”.

Since its 2016 debut, Westworld has garnered 43 Emmy nominations, including for Outstanding Drama Series two years in a row. In its second season, critics continued to praise the daring series.

Joining Aaron Paul and Vincent Cassel as new cast members in Season 3 are Lena Waithe (Master of None),  Scott Mescudi (How to Make it in America), John Gallagher, Jr. (The Newsroom) and Tommy Flanagan (Sons of Anarchy).

Inspired by the 1973 film of the same name, Westworld was created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Among S3’s other executive producers are J.J. Abrams, Athena Wickham, Richard J. Lewis, Denise Thé and Ben Stephenson.

Westworld Season 3 is an HBO series and is exclusive in Australia to Foxtel. The 8 x 60-minute series will air on Mondays from midday AEDT with a primetime encore at 8.30pm AEDT.
