Earlier this month, the HBO officially canceled the series’Westworld‘ after four seasons, and fans were shocked to learn of the decision.
The news also came as a surprise to the show’s cast, who reportedly still get paid for what was poised to be the show’s fifth and likely final season.
In an interview for the Entertainment Tonightthe interpreter of Ashley Stubbs, Luke Hemsworthcommented on the cancellation, which happened precisely on his birthday.
“I was like, ‘What the fuck#! What the hell! When you love what you do, you hope these things last forever, but everyone has their own reasons. I’m grateful for the character I’ve lived and that journey has been a huge part of my life, but this cancellation was disappointing.”
“From the beginning, I think the idea was to come full circle and come back around loops, about humans and robots trapped in this trajectory. Unfortunately, we are isolated, but it is the nature of the world. You can’t be depressed about it. You move on and open new doors.”
Reports released by THR revealed that the cancellation was motivated by the low rating of the series, which had been falling every season.
Previously, co-creator Lisa Joy had also expressed his desire to end the narrative of the series in the fifth season: “We have an outcome in mind that we want to achieve. [na quinta temporada]🇧🇷 We haven’t seen the end of the story yet.”

There, customers can do whatever they want, without obeying rules or laws.
