James Marsden Expresses Hope for Westworld Season 5 Renewal Despite Cancellation

A few months ago, we learned that HBO has decided to cancel Westworld after four seasons. The decision was met with disappointment from fans and the people involved in the series, especially since there was a five-season plan and we will never get to see it have a chance to conclude the story.

Not only that but the series has also been pulled off from HBO Max so it's not available to watch on streaming at the moment and you can also watch it through its physical media releases for now.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, James Marsden, who played Teddy in the series, opened up about the cancellation of Westworld where he also expressed his disappointment with HBO's decision. He is also hoping that it will still get renewed for a fifth season at some point although he admitted that it's all just "wishful thinking."

"I’d be lying to you if I told you that the way we ended Westworld wasn’t a disappointment. I’m never going to speak without gratitude about any of my experiences, but it would have been nice to be able to complete the story we wanted to finish. I love this Westworld family," he said.

"It was one of those unique opportunities to be part of something where I also would be sitting at home ravenously waiting for the next episode as a fan. I totally understand it’s an expensive show and big shows have to have big audiences to merit the expense, I just wish it was about more than financial success."

The actor concluded, "But who knows, maybe there’s some world where it can get completed somehow. Maybe that’s just wishful thinking, because I know we had plans to finish it the way we wanted to."

It was really unfortunate that the series was never given a chance to have a final season and it sounds like it will never be since it was pulled off from HBO Max, which indicates that the network has far from an interest in the program itself anytime soon.
