HBO released the first trailer for the upcoming third season of Westworld starring Aaron Paul.
Paul has joined the show as a series regular for this season, but his exact role is still yet to be officially announced. The new trailer also gives a first glimpse at Season 3’s other new cast members, including Lena Waithe, Vincent Cassel, Scott Mescudi (aka rapper Kid Cudi), and NFL player Marshawn Lynch (yes, really).
According to TV Line, Cassel will play a Westworld villain, but no details about the other characters have been revealed. The trailer does show Waithe, Lynch, and Paul on what looks to be some sort of high-tech heist, which could be a strong clue about who they play in the show. But as with everything in Westworld, we don’t know what’s actually real and what’s not. Sure, they might be criminals in the “real world.” But they might also be hosts in some elaborate scheme.
The third season of Westworld will premiere on HBO sometime in 2020
