After 4 seasons, HBO has determined to cancel the sci-fi drama Westworld. This collection was one among HBO’s greatest tentpole collection, so this appears to come back as a shock to lots of people. I really was questioning how for much longer the collection would go as a result of I observed that there hasn’t been a lot hype on-line for it the previous couple of seasons.
Now, the report has confirmed that the score for the present “fell off sharply for its third season, after which dropped even additional for season 4.” On high of that, the critic critiques have been dropping as effectively. Whereas I loved the primary two seasons of the collection, my curiosity in it began fading whereas watching Season 3. It simply began to get messy, and I’m not stunned that the collection was canceled.
Co-creator of the collection Jonathan Nolan hoped HBO would give the collection a fifth season to wrap up the present’s bold story final month saying: “We at all times deliberate for a fifth and last season. We’re nonetheless in conversations with the community. We very a lot hope to make them.” Co-creator Lisa Pleasure went on to say the story has at all times been working in the direction of a selected ending: “Jonah and I’ve at all times had an ending in thoughts that we hope to achieve. We’ve got not fairly reached it but.”
Effectively, now they’ll by no means get to that ending! I believe the present would have labored greatest as a restricted collection like Watchmen. One or two seasons to inform the story. It actually didn’t should be stretched out to 5 seasons. I haven’t watched Season 4 but, however I’ve heard that it’s ambiguous and will function an ending.
HBO mentioned in a press release: “Over the previous 4 seasons, Lisa and Jonah have taken viewers on a mind-bending odyssey, elevating the bar at each step. We’re tremendously grateful to them, together with their immensely proficient forged, producers and crew, and all of our companions at Kilter Movies, Unhealthy Robotic and Warner Bros. Tv. It’s been a thrill to hitch them on this journey.”
Right here’s a press release from Kilter Movies: “Making Westworld has been one of many highlights of our careers. We’re deeply grateful to our extraordinary forged and crew for creating these indelible characters and good worlds. We’ve been privileged to inform these tales about the way forward for consciousness – each human and past – within the temporary window of time earlier than our AI overlords forbid us from doing so.”
Who is aware of, possibly a number of years from now, it would get a film that may wrap up the story.
