remember when Western world third season ended and most fans of the series (including io9) shrugged with a big “eh” and moved on to the rest of the hellscape that was 2020. The series hopes to make up for its disappointment with its fourth season, coming next month, with a first trailer here today.
Set to the melancholy strains of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day,” it kicks off with that western landscape we knew so well through seasons one and two—Though, yes, that sleek, ultra-modern cityscape from Season 3 also gets what it deserves. And if the hints in this trailer are to be believed, could that city be a new Destiny Delos in the making?
That trailer doesn’t give us much in terms of plot. But he gives us a crash course in who will come back for more: Thandiwe Newton’s Maeve and Aaron Paul’s Caleb, and it looks like they’ll be teaming up this season. Also, Luke Hemsworth’s Stubbs; Jeffrey Wright’s Bernard; Charlotte Hale as Tessa Thompson; Angela Sarafyan’s Clementine; Ed Harris’ William, who is apparently back in Man in Black mode; and (surprise! Not really… you he knew they would find a way to bring her back) Dolores by Evan Rachel Wood. Also, what have they done with Maeve’s daughter? The callback to season one, episode one with all the flies is a nice touch (and completely terrifying too).
Of course, it remains to be seen which version of these people, particularly the ones who aren’t actually people, we’ll actually see in season four. Never forget Western world he loves to confuse the viewer with flashbacks. Do you remember the second season? If not, now is a good time to look again, because Western world the fourth season arrives on HBO on June 26.
