Westworld is on its way back to Australian TV screens for another dose of science fiction with a cowboy twist. The series is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton film of the same name, where high paying guests head to a wild west theme park to indulge in their wildest fantasies.
Westworld Season 3 TV Preview
Westworld is an amusement park where people pay to create a dream scenario, using androids that are programmed not to harm humans. The series first hit our screens back in 2016, and was an instant global hit.
Viewers of the previous seasons will be fully aware of the insane curveball storylines that this HBO show has created so far. Although there is little known about the upcoming series, the show’s creators have promised something altogether “more crazier and ambitious”, which will have fans salivating in their armchairs.
Starring Evan Rachel (Doll and Em), Jeffrey Wright (Green Eggs and Ham), Ed Harris (The Truman Show) and Thandie Newton (Crash) the much anticipated HBO TV series Westworld has arrived in Australia and using the information in this guide you won’t have to miss a key moment.

Must See TV for Westworld fans
Westworld season 3 runs over eight episodes and airs from March. Until then, you may wish to get your teeth into something in the same vein, so we’ve made a few suggestions below.
Britannia Season 2 (Foxtel & Foxtel Now)
We head back to 42 AD, two years on from the moment General Aulus invaded Britannia. Now his aim is to crush the Celtic tribes throughout the land with the help of Queen Amena. But does Aulus have an altogether different agenda, as his suspicious behaviour suggests? There is more than a little hope, however, in the shape of a young girl named Cait, who has been well trained by Divis, a druid cast aside by his own people. The two have a plan to oust the Romans and take back the prophecy that might eventually save Britannia.
The Outsider (Foxtel & Foxtel Now)
An intense investigation is taking place into the brutal murder of a young boy in Flint, a fictional town in Oklahoma. As the investigation moves forward, it becomes apparent that a local teacher is a prime suspect. But after he comes up with a solid alibi, detectives wrestle with the realisation that he was in two places at once, which leads them to question everything they believe about reality. The original novel was only released at the end of 2018, and the story was so intriguing that it started a bidding war between all major US production companies.
Outlander Season 5 (Foxtel & Foxtel Now)
In season 5, it’s becoming clear that the American revolution is gaining momentum, and that the Frasers will have to put up a fight to keep their place in the New World, with some dangerous challenges and adventures ahead. The story is largely based on Gabaldon’s fifth book, The Fiery Cross, where Jamie is asked to form a militia to protect the Highlanders, but will he risk everything for the wishes of someone else? Catch season 5 from February 17
