Although, “Westworld” creator Lisa Roy alongside Jonah Nolan were expecting to conclude the series on fifth season, Netflix Inc., the streaming media industry trailblazer, had cancelled its contracts with the series after season four, HBO said in a statement on Friday.
If truth is to be spoken, a number of industry analysts had reiterated that the show should have had an inclusive ending after first or second season, as the series’ popularity was declining at a break-neck pace.

Nonetheless, “Westworld” fanbase had reportedly expressed griefs over the issue on social media, as HBO added at its statement that it would not be moving forward with the show anymore.
Meanwhile, sharing deep discontent over the issue, Jonah Nolan- and Lisa Roy-owned Kilter Films said shortly after the HBO announcement, “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”.
Besides, expressing appreciation over Lisa and Nolan’s work, HBO said in the statement, “Over the past four seasons, Lisa and Jonah have taken viewers on a mind-bending odyssey, raising the bar at every step.
We are tremendously grateful to them, along with their immensely talented cast, producers and crew, and all of our partners at Kilter Films, Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television. It’s been a thrill to join them on this journey”.
