Birthed from 1973’s “Westworld” movie, HBO’s sci-fi western series “Westworld” heads into its third season next year with a multitude of new twists and characters. Main among the new “Westworld” Season 3 cast are Kid Cudi, Vincent Cassel, Marshawn Lynch, Lena Waithe, and Aaron Paul. 

In an interview with Men’s Journal (via Metro), Paul underscored the ways in which his “Westworld” character, Caleb, invites a fresh face and personality to the HBO series. 

“[Caleb] has a point of view outside of the park,” Paul explained. “He takes the audience outside of Westworld and what it’s like to live amongst the people that created Westworld and sort of where we’re at as a society.”

As an everyday human with a slightly dark side, Caleb may at first appear to be happy and serene, yet as his character says in the “Westworld” Season 3 trailer, “I guess the rough edges are the only things I’m hanging onto.” His dark undertones and human nature will, as the first trailer suggests, be prime pickings for the malignant Dolores Abernathy (Evan Rachel Wood) to utilize in tearing down the real world.

Given that the Season 2 finale saw various “Westworld” characters, such as Dolores, Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright), and the host version of Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson), escape the park, Season 3 will be less centered on the Westworld park itself. Though, with Maeve (Thandie Newton) and Hector (Rodrigo Santoro) left behind at the end of Season 2, there still resides a precedent to explore what Delos has in store for Westworld following its catastrophe. 

Those concerned that the season may be far too confusing to follow, much like its previous two outings, can rest easy as co-showrunner Jonathan Nolan has already confessed that “Westworld” Season 3 is “less of a guessing game.” Despite its toned down mysteries, though, Paul said the upcoming season of “Westworld” is “even more ambitious than last season.” 

“Westworld” Season 3 debuts on HBO in 2020.
