Aaron Paul: Westworld season 3 is “even more ambitious” than seasons 1 and 2

Breaking Bad and El Camino star Aaron Paul will have a major role in Westworld season 3. He’ll be playing a character named Caleb who is a construction worker who comes into contact with Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), and who seems to have some sort of criminal side-business, as he and his crew — consisting of Lena Waithe and Marshawn Lynch — were seen denotating the front of a building in the first teaser for season 3.

Westworld will travel a different path than it did in its previous two seasons, as Dolores and the hosts she brought outside the Delos parks will have to encounter the real world, albeit a futuristic version of the one we live in today. Robots are crude machines tasked with security and manual labor, as seen in the San Diego Comic-Con trailer.

Maeve, however, will basically be the queen of a new Delos park called War World, a World War II-era theme park filled with Nazis occupying an Argentian town.

Anyway, Paul spoke to host Carson Daily on TODAY, and talked about his role as Jesse Pinkmen in the Breaking Bad movie, El Camino, and the conversation ended on some exciting soundbites about Westworld season 3. Check it out:

Paul confirms that filming for Westworld season 3 had just wrapped, and he gushed about how much of a fan he was of the show. “The first two seasons were so big and so ambitious, and this third season is even more ambitious and crazier,” he said. “And it comes out sometime next year.”

I’m just so excited for people to see the world outside of the parks.

There is no hard date announced by HBO for the premiere for season 3, but when it does make its debut, it will consist of only eight episodes, instead of 10 as the previous two seasons had.

The main cast consisting of Evan Rachel Wood (Dolores), Thandie Newton (Maeve), Jeffrey Wright (Bernard) and Tessa Thompson (formerly Charlotte Hale), and Edd Harris (the Man in Black) are all set to reprise their roles in season 3, among others.
