Tv Season Info

The third season of the drama series starts about three months after the ending of Season 2. Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) is now out in the real world, carrying the five processing cores she stole from the park's mainframe. Meanwhile, Maeve (Thandie Newton) finds herself stuck in the World War II park, where she reunites with Lee (Simon Quarterman) and Hector (Rodrigo Santoro). William (Ed Harris) also managed to escape Westworld, but has to deal with the guilt of murdering his own daughter. As the season progresses, Dolores befriends Caleb (Aaron Paul), a young man who ends up helping her in fighting for the freedom of all the hosts.

Critic Reviews for Westworld Season 3

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (26)

Westworld wants to generate another existential conversation in Season 3, but even as the show swaps settings and introduces new faces, the details that make it come to life are perfunctory.

Mar 5, 2020 | Full Review…

This is a zanier, sillier Westworld, and much more entertaining for it.

Mar 11, 2020 | Full Review…

This necessary reset looks great, but if the 2nd taught us anything, just watch, don't think.

Mar 11, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The writing can be blunt about it ("They built the world to be a game, and then they rigged it to make sure they always won," Caleb helpfully summarises at one point), but it's a compelling new angle nonetheless.

Dec 22, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With a polished new look and a lethal lease on life, it's an outing best suited for the paranoid androids willing to lean into the mania around us.

Dec 22, 2020 | Full Review…

I don't know, as always, where this show is going, but I wait for Westworld to unveil what kind of future that could be.

Dec 22, 2020 | Full Review…

I'm fully aware that I'm about to go into my closet and dig out my Goldilocks wig when I complain about this, but this new, simpler Westworld is also no fun.

Dec 22, 2020 | Full Review…

When nothing in "Westworld" is reliably real, there's little for viewers to cling to, which makes the entire enterprise more exasperating than cleverly twisty drama.

Dec 22, 2020 | Full Review…

The America of "Westworld" season three is futuristic for its class divides and technological claustrophobia, but its gender politics feel distinctly 2020.

Dec 22, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

While the third season continues to impress with its visual elements and stellar cast, it also continues having issues with its writing, presenting a convoluted, messy, and often sluggish narrative that makes for another bland and forgettable outing.

Westworld has become a bad science fiction movie. A mediocre and boring season of a series that promised much more than what we have seen. [Full review in Spanish]

Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy's biggest merit in Season 3 is there immaculate ability to reinvent themselves and their story. [Full review in Spanish]

Audience Reviews for Westworld: Season 3

  • 5d ago
    I don't know if season 4 will be any good but season 3 still is.
  • Apr 15, 2021
    season 3 was much better than season 2, yet the flaws are still there. it wants us to take it too seriously and dabble with the idea of existential crisis. but the only existential crisis it should have is is about season 4. it was not so fun while it lasted but this show has to end now. Side note: Bernard is the most boring character in television history.
  • Apr 11, 2021
    The only people that don't love season 3 never understood what the show was about to begin with. Those people were thinking too small scale. The Westworld park was our first glimpse into this world and the 3rd season fully reveals it. Your opinion is invalid if you only hated it because you don't have the intelligence to understand it. As usual, the idiotic masses will probably take a few decades to appreciate what the most intelligent of us already do.

    The season started very interestingly and surprising. I like how they interpreted the Cyberpunk genre and how they set up the overall story. The first 3-4 episodes are very convincing. Towards the end, however, they ruined the whole plot by contradicting arbitrary character arcs. Hale and Maeve are completely manufactured as plot armor. There is no consistent motivation visible when it comes to them. Other characters in the season show that it can be done differently. Bernard and Williams continue to impress in a consistent way and regarding their previous arcs. The last episodes seem to be rushed and not thought through at all.

    So to begin with amazing cgi, actor great performance, camara shots/angles some are pretty awsome, but and this is a big but, the story completly lost itself, some of the mais problems in the first season just disapeared, and now there completly other that make no sense, is really bad to a show when the audience feels that they induce drama just to continue the show and not to tell a story. What makes me mad is that there is a lot of begginers problems in this season, for instance the hosts got shot, even when they were free and got injured, in middle of season 3 dolores is a terminator machine that took bullets and kept going like nothing happened. I never feels so impacient watching a tv show, don't take me wrong i loved the show in season 1 thats why i'm so angry, they destroy a show, with beginers problems on writing, and 100 milion budget and they hire this kind of writers. The positive thing is that, i fell much more confident about screenwriting my own projects. Biggest let down in tv show history for me.

    Like a lot of others, I was intrigued with Season 1. Season 2 had moments, but overall I spent most of it confused by the wildly inconsistent storyline, jumping around in time and the alternate realities (especially with Bernard). Just trying to keep straight who was doing what to whom and why they were doing it was exhausting. Far too many plots to keep track of from a too large volume of AI characters, especially when you keep giving them a bunch of different realities. I could never be sure if it was now or thirty years before, or what it meant to the plot. You just hope at some point it all makes sense. The constant nudity and f-bombs are just plain gratuitous. Who's writing this, sniggering teenagers trying to shock and titillate the adults? They sound like they're in a competition to rack up the most swears in a sentence. Is there a weekly prize in the writer's room or something? These are professionals with high IQs and skills far above the norm. Are we supposed to believe they'd be saying f**k every other word and be comfortable with naked life-like robots with their junk in their faces constantly? Everybody swears a bit, but this is just a relentless assault for no good reason. Ed Harris remains the best thing in this show, even though I was more than tired of his relentless violence and cruelty. Heck, it's still Ed Harris, right? The man can command your attention. Anthony Hopkins is always worth watching, even though he's out now. But these long-winded speeches droning on and on reminded me of his Silence of the Lambs character. Both just never stopped with the boring philosophizing. Delores needs to be written far less yappy too. It really gets tedious and self-indulgent when they have these characters blathering on and on about the meaning of everything in their 'look how clever I am' monologs. You need some to propel the story forward and add clues, but tone it down a bit. You're making my eyes glaze over. Then Season 3 comes along. It was so jarringly different that until Dolores popped up I thought I'd mistakenly switched programs. I hated every minute of it from the opening scenes. Seriously, I'm so over Dolores on a mission to teach the humans the errors of their ways. How arrogant she is now. I cared in season 1 and felt sorry for them. In season 3, she just seems like a Terminator. Didn't even make it through the first episode. It was that off-putting. This thing has gone seriously wrong, as the plummeting ratings clearly show. I mean 92% in the first season down to 61% in Season 3? Season 4 needs to get back to the park and the basics. It will, if the producers are paying attention to the viewers.

    Completely waist of time and money. The story line has no direction. You have no idea what's going on. Don't watch season 3

    Men weak, women strong.....Hollywood continues the WOKE mantra .....sad
  • Jan 29, 2021
    Season 1 of Westworld was some of the best TV I have ever seen with complex, compelling characters atempting to decipher the mysteries of the park. Season 3 has traded all of that in to become a dumb, uninspired action show with none of the charm and intrigue of its predecessor. Each of the characters is profoundly unlikable, aside from the Man in Black, who the showrunners ignore then toss aside. The producers of the show need to learn that the draw of the first season was the complicated set of mysteries and philosophies driving each character, this can't be simply ignored and replaced with a larger budget.

    WTF happened here??? I couldn't follow or figure it. So far removed from the original thread. Confusing. I was disappointed.
