Aaron Paul cast in Westworld season 3

Aaron Paul WestworldBreaking Bad star Aaron Paul has been cast in the third season of HBO’s sci-fi drama, Westworld.

According to a report by Deadline, Paul will be joining the next season of the show but no details have been revealed about his role so far, certainly not if he will be a human or a host. Paul is best known for his role as Jesse Pinkman on AMC’s Breaking Bad. He has recently starred on Hulu’s The Path. He will be appearing on Apple’s upcoming drama anthology series, Are You Sleeping?

The second season of Westworld concluded with many key players reaching the real world, so the next chapter of the story will no longer be confined to the park. In a report by Collider, showrunner Lisa Joy shared some details about the new territory the next season will be exploring. She said:

“It’s going to be a whole new world. And we technically have three [hosts], because Hale is out there, too, or someone who certainly looks like Tessa Thompson! We’ll come to see who’s really there and what that character is in the future. This series is about reinvention and scope. The first season was a more intimate look at the park from within the loops. In the second season, the hosts broke out of their loops and were able to explore more of the park. In the third season, they’ve broken out of the park itself. We’re in terra incognita. From the beginning, when Jonah and I were thinking about the series as far back as the pilot, we knew we wanted to explore other worlds in the park, and we also knew the one world we would start to see little glimpses of throughout the first two seasons was the real world, and that we would get there eventually — and when we did, it would be a whole new experience.”
