Westworld returns on 15th March on HBO in the US. The assassination of the president-elect of the United States, thermonuclear incidents in Paris, the start of the second Russian civil war, and much more. March 15 happens to be the "Ides of March", which was known in Roman times as a deadline for settling debts - it was also the day the soothsayer warned Julius Caesar about in William Shakespeare's play because of, you know, that whole death thing.
New cast members this season include Aaron Paul, Vincent Cassel, Lena Waithe, Scott Mescudi, Marshawn Lynch, John Gallagher Jr., and Michael and Tommy Flanagan. HBO is calling it "A dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the birth of a new form of life on Earth".
Returning cast members include Evan Rachel Wood as Dolores, Emmy® victor Thandie Newton as Maeve, Ed Harris as Man in Black, Jeffrey Wright as Bernard, Tessa Thompson as Charlotte, Luke Hemsworth as Stubbs, Simon Quarterman as Lee Sizemore and Rodrigo Santoro as Hector Escaton.
