Westworld showrunners Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan had previously said they hoped for a fifth season to wrap up the story.
They said in the joint statement:
“Making Westworld has been one of the highlights of our careers. We are deeply grateful to our extraordinary cast and crew for creating these indelible characters and brilliant worlds. We’ve been privileged to tell these stories about the future of consciousness – both human and beyond – in the brief window of time before our AI overlords forbid us from doing so.”
