Westworld Canceled at HBO

Westworld had a season 5 planned to wrap up its story, but HBO has other plans. The series has been canceled following season 4’s release earlier this year. Check out a statement from HBO here:

“Over the past four seasons, Lisa and Jonah have taken viewers on a mind-bending odyssey, raising the bar at every step. We are tremendously grateful to them, along with their immensely talented cast, producers and crew, and all of our partners at Kilter Films, Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television. It’s been a thrill to join them on this journey.”

And Kilter Films:

 “Making Westworld has been one of the highlights of our careers. We are deeply grateful to our extraordinary cast and crew for creating these indelible characters and brilliant worlds. We’ve been privileged to tell these stories about the future of consciousness – both human and beyond – in the brief window of time before our AI overlords forbid us from doing so.”

I’m sad to say it, but I’m honestly relieved. I loved season 1 and enjoyed season 2, but season 3 and season 4 have been an absolute train wreck. The worst part is, both seasons started out strong and progressively got more convoluted and unfocused. Westworld was one of the best shows of 2016, but I have to say, I won’t miss it.
