Westworld Season 3: Photos & synopses for first four episodes revealed
Ahead of Westworld’s highly-anticipated return next week, HBO has released new photos and official details for the first four episodes of their critically acclaimed sci-fi drama series’ upcoming third season, offering us mysterious log lines on what the episodes will be about. Featuring a new look at Evan Rachel Wood’s Dolores, Aaron Paul’s Caleb and more, you can check out the full photos in the gallery below!
The official synopses of the four episodes are described as follows:
Episode 3.01 titled “Parce Domine,” directed by Jonathan Nolan from a script he co-wrote with Lisa Joy: If you’re stuck in a loop, try walking in a straight line.
Episode 3.02 titled “The Winter Line,” directed by Richard J. Lewis from a script co-written by Matthew Pitts & Lisa Joy: People put up a lot of walls. Bring a sledgehammer to your life.
Episode 3.03 titled “The Absence of Field,” directed by Amanda Marsalis from a script by Denise Thé: If you don’t like what you see in the mirror, don’t blame the mirror.
Episode 3.04 titled “The Mother of Exiles,” directed by Paul Cameron from a script by Jordan Goldberg & Lisa Joy: The truth doesn’t always set you free.
Westworld Season 3 will be shorter than the previous seasons of the series, with eight episodes instead of the usual 10. However, it is still unclear if the new episodes will have a longer run time in order to make up for the season’s shorter episode count.
Newcomers for the series include Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Lena Waithe (Ready Player One), with NFL player Marshawn Lynch, and Vincent Cassel (Black Swan, Eastern Promises). They will be joined by returning cast members Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Luke Hemsworth, and Rodrigo Santoro in the series.
A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the birth of a new form of life on Earth, the Emmy-winning Westworld was created for television by Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy, who are also executive producers with J.J. Abrams, Richard J. Lewis, Roberto Patino, Athena Wickham, and Ben Stephenson.
Westworld comes from production companies Kilter Films and Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series is based on the film written by Michael Crichton, with the third season set to premiere on March 15!
