WarnerMedia has renewed the Emmy-winning drama series Westworld for a Season 4, as announced Wednesday by Casey Bloys, president, HBO Programming.
No details were given or an episode amount, but the first two seasons had 10 episodes each, with its current season, Season 3, consisting of 8 episodes, so it's safe to assume Season 4 will be around a similar number of episodes.
The next episode, "Passed Pawn," airs this Sunday, with the Season 3 finale airing on May 3 with "Crisis Theory."
WarnerMedia also recently announced HBO NOW subscribers will also get access to the new HBO Max streaming service at launch for no extra cost.
