Westworld is an American Science Fiction television series by HBO. The series is a prequel to the 1976 film Futureworld. Written and directed by Michael Crichton and created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, this series has currently premiered three seasons as of now. The story is based on a fiction technology-based wild west theme amusement park in Westworld, which is populated by android hosts. This park is an exclusive theme park where people who can afford the ticket can live without any kind of limits. It includes hosts who are lifelike robots that can pass off as human beings. They bleed; they feel pain and show emotions just like any other human.
The story takes a twist when the bots start to remember their identities, start remembering things from the past, which they are not supposed to. This is a place for the customers where they can do whatever they want to, no matter how brutal. This place allows for discovering one’s true self. The season 1 DVD was available in the market starting from 7th November, allowing fans to watch the series in 4k Ultra HD and new special features.
A trailer was launched on 20th February to give a glimpse of what is Season 3 going to be about. It consisted of footage clips from previous episodes. The trailer includes events that HBO described as “Dark Odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and birth of a new form of life on Earth.”

Johnathan said in an interview that there would be no more time jumps in the upcoming Seasons, rather they will be focusing on the aftermath of the massacre that took place at the end of Season 2. Season 3 started with a leap of three months after the second season ended where Dolores had escaped Westworld with the processing cores, including Bernard’s. They took residence in Neo-Los Angeles in 2058.
Bonding could be seen between Caleb and Dolores, and then she realizes the real value of artificial beings and the lower-class humans in society. Besides this, Maeve found herself in Delos Park, which was ironic since it’s based on the Fascist Italy of World War 2. Apart from all this William was also haunted by visions of his daughter Emily and Dolores in this season after he left the Westworld at the end of the second season According to the interview session with Jonathan, it is said that Season 3 will consist of 8 episodes, unlike the last two seasons which ten episodes each.
