Preview Westworld Seasons 1 and 2
For Waithe fans who are planning to jump on the Westworld wagon, be prepared: It's a complex drama with a lot of twists. It's not as exciting to see if the main points of the plot are ruined, so here's the bottom line:
In season 1, we discover Westworld, a kind of adult amusement park in the near future, in which wealthy guests can come and play their fantasies of life in the wild west among the "hosts" – very androids humans, programmed to play specific characters. Of course, where there is money, energy and technology, many problems can occur.
In season 2, other worlds are displayed, including Shogun World and The Raj. Employees work around the clock to deal with the consequences of a recent disaster, while guests find themselves in unexpected places. And it becomes increasingly difficult to determine who lives at what time.

For the moment, nothing is known about Waithe's role in the upcoming season, including the number of episodes she will be in and the type of character she will play. Here's what we do not know: first, Waithe is not the only new Westworld member of the cast. It was announced in September 2018 that breaking Bad the star Aaron Paul had joined the series. According to later information, the shooting of the third season would begin in March 2019.
As for when we can hope to see Westworld Season 3 is the bad news. It's a show that takes a lot of time to shoot. So do not expect a promotion in a few months, maybe in the fall of 2019. Many people believe that the first will take place in early 2020 if we are lucky.
