We finally have more Westworld news to share! No, they haven’t started filming, but we may be getting closer as four of the main cast members – Jeffrey Wright, Evan Rachel Wood, Ed Harris, and Thandie Newton – have secured considerable salary increases ahead of season three. This also confirms we will be seeing their characters again, so expect Bernard, Dolores, William/Man in Black, and Maeve to return to our screens next season.
As we await production news for Westworld season three, we aren’t the only ones anxious for information. Most of the cast is also in the dark about the upcoming season. In a new interview, Thandie Newton admits she doesn’t know where the story is headed but is dying to find out her character’s future on the show.
Westworld news is few and far between these days, but we do have some tidbits to share after last week’s Emmy Awards. Thandie Newton admits her surprise at her Emmy win, and she and several other Westworld actors share their feelings about Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul being cast for season three. Luke Hemsworth also calls out his siblings for not watching the show and remarks on the secrecy surrounding next season.
It was a star studded affair at last night’s 70th Primetime Emmy Awards, and the Westworld cast shined on the red (sorry, gold) carpet. While the show only brought home one of the awards for which they were nominated – bringing the total Emmy count to four for season 2 – the cast all dressed like winners. Check out their gorgeous looks below!
Filming for season 3 of Westworld is months away but we already have our first new cast addition!
Last night the 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards were presented at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, during night one of a two night event. With a total of 21 nominations (16 for creative arts), hopes were high for the Westworld crew to bring home some trophies – and they did! Facing tough competition in all categories – including from fellow HBO series Game of Thrones which garnered 7 wins – Westworld still managed to snag three awards for season two. Check out the winners below!
Hello, Westworld Watchers!
Season 2 is behind us and now the agonizing wait for Season 3 is well underway, but there is still plenty of Westworld to talk about! The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards are upon us and as expected, Westworld and Game of Thrones are leading the pack for HBO. While Best Drama Writing and Best Drama Directing are missing from the Westworld lineup (that may have something to do with Westworld submitting five episodes for directorial consideration), there’s still plenty of nominations to parse through.
Note: The Creative Arts Emmys are taking place over Saturday and Sunday, September 8th-9th. Unsurprisingly, Westworld has a slew of nominations in the technical and guest acting categories. Those categories, regardless of which ones Westworld wins or loses, will be covered in an upcoming post. Expect it to arrive at your fingertips as soon as Monday!
Westworld Roundup: Pushing Boundaries in Season 2; Setting Shogun World to Music; Bernard’s Awakening; William’s Transformation into the Man in Black
The Westworld news is few and far between in the long wait between seasons, and production is likely still months away. Although we may not have any new information about season three, we do have several interviews to share to help ease the pain. Showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy explain their approach to making an Westworld an enjoyable and relevant show, Sean O’Meara discusses Westworld’s Emmy nomination for music supervision, and Jeffrey Wright and Jimmi Simpson reflect on their Emmy worthy season two performances.
Emmy Nominees Evan Rachel Wood and Jimmi Simpson on Their Westworld Experience and Character Evolution
Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and William (Jimmi Simpson) have had quite a complicated relationship on Westworld. Going from travelling companions, to lovers, to enemies in season one – then making an uneasy truce before turning on each other in season two – it’s been a roller coaster journey for these two. All that drama has helped the actors turn in excellent performances, however, as both Wood and Simpson are up for Emmys this year. In separate interviews, they discuss their characters’ transformations and how grateful they are to be part of a show like Westworld.
Westworld‘s second season was at times exciting, moving, shocking, and (unsurprisingly) complex. The confusing time shifts upset many fans, while others enjoyed putting the puzzle pieces together. As the finale came to an end, however, the stage was set for a very different Westworld – with a number of characters dead, many more locked away in a virtual world perhaps never to be seen again, and a few lucky escapees. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy reflect on season two and tease where the story is headed next.
