HBO surprised its subscribers and the TV industry on Friday by announcing that it has canceled the big-budget science-fiction series Westworld just a few months after its fourth season concluded, Variety reports.
The series, which has received 54 Emmy nominations during its run, was intended to end with its fifth season, according to recent statements from its two showrunners, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.
The husband-and-wife creative couple had a specific ending in mind that now won’t make it to the screen, though many viewers felt that the ending of the fourth season also worked as a conclusion.
Several reasons contributed to HBO’s decision, including high production costs, declining viewership, and sliding critical response amid an overall effort to cut costs at the newly formed parent company Warner Bros. Discovery.
Westworld set records when it first premiered, but its viewership declined with each season, with the recently aired season four experiencing an especially sharp drop.
This dream involved most of my family & I moving into a bigger older house, when it was night time & everyone was getting in bed, I noticed that my brothers KDC & TDC had not locked or closed the security door to their bedroom; and so I locked it, and I went to tell them about this.
The next thing that I remember is that I was in a family TV show inside a house with George Lopez & some of his family members who all spoke Spanish & English, at some point I went to wash the dishes in the kitchen, the sink was missing a few parts, but it did have water; but that is all that I can remember of this dream.
