When is Westworld Season 4 releasing? Read on to find out.

One of the most anticipated series coming out in 2022 is HBO’s beloved sci-fi series Westworld which will be taking more than two years from the renewal to its eventual release. Westworld started off as a fantasy-based amusement part, operated by extremely advanced humanoid robots. Those with deep pockets can pay and live out their deepest darkest desires without facing any consequences. Initially, the robots were designed in a way that they can withstand any and every kind of violence from humans without harming them back. But who would have guessed that they will become sentient after a while and can wage war against the humans?

Three seasons of the series have been on air in the years 2016, 2018, and 2020, and following the very same timeline, the fourth season is all set to hit the screens very soon. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming sci-fi drama Westworld Season 4:

Westworld Season 4 Release Date

Westworld Season 4 will premiere on HBO and HBO Max on June 26, 2022. 

Westworld Season 4 Trailer

With the release of the fourth season being just a month away, HBO released the trailer of the same. And trust us when we say that the frames are spectacular. There are no dialogues in the trailer, just Lou Reed’s Perfect Day playing in the background with disconnected images playing one by one. The whole plot is a mystery to us but what can be understood is that there is going to be a considerable amount of shift from something serene to absolute chaos. 

Westworld Season 4 Plot

There is no such information regarding what can be seen in Westworld Season 4, but one can still have a basic idea about what might happen. By the end of Season 3, Dolores sacrificed herself in order to defeat Serac and several hosts successfully escaped from the park. Now with the sentient hosts entering the human world, there is a possibility of a huge war between humankind and robots. Bernard might be playing a more pivotal role than before with the information he was able to acquire in Sublime.
