With a third season of HBO’s stunning Westworld on the way next year, now comes word on a new addition for the jaw-dropping series.
As first reported by Deadline, Lena Waithe has signed on in a role that’s believed to be tied to a critical plot point of the show’s third year. Waithe is likely best known to genre fans for Ready Player One and This Is Us.
This is the second major new addition for Season 3 of Westworld, with Breaking Bad’s Emmy-winning Aaron Paul having previously been confirmed to be joining the series.
Plot details remain thin on the ground for Westworld’s third season, although we know that Season 3 won’t be arriving until some point in 2020.
