Luke Hemsworth calls Westworld cancellation ‘disappointing’

“Unfortunately, we’re getting cut off, but that’s the nature of the world,” Hemsworth said. “You can’t get depressed there.”

Luke Hemsworth opts to see the beauty in the cancellation of critically acclaimed HBO series Westworld.

Since its premiere in 2016, “Westworld” has received 54 Emmy nominations and features a star-studded cast including Evan Rachel Wood, Thandiwe Newton, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Anthony Hopkins, Aaron Paul, Angela Sarafyan and James Marsden, Ariana DeBose, Aurora Perrineau, and Daniel Wu.

HBO announced that “Westworld” received the ax in November 2022 after concluding Season 4 in August.

“You hope these things stay that way forever, but everyone has their own reasons,” Hemsworth told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m very grateful for my role on this show and this journey has been a big part of my life, but yeah it was disappointing.”

In fact, Hemsworth received the news on his 42nd birthday: “I was like, ‘Fuck! Damn it!’” he said.

Hemsworth continued, “I think the idea from the start was to come full circle and go back to talking about loops, about humans and robots getting stuck in that trajectory. Unfortunately we will be cut off, but that is the nature of the world. You can’t get depressed there. You move on and it opens new doors.”

Based on the 1973 novel by Michael Crichton, the sci-fi series Westworld centered on a themed playground for the elite, filled with human-looking robots that were deployed to fulfill the wishes of all paid guests. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy created the series, with JJ Abrams as executive producer.

“Over the past four seasons, Lisa and Jonah have taken viewers on a mind-boggling odyssey, raising the bar at every step,” HBO said in its cancellation statement. “We are immensely grateful to them, along with their immensely talented cast, producers and crew, and all of our partners at Kilter Films, Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television. It was exciting to join her on this journey.”

Westworld’s cancellation follows HBO’s parent company Warner Bros. Discovery, which is deferring taxes on the films Batgirl and Scoob: Holiday Haunt. HBO also canceled The Time Traveler’s Wife as a result of the Warner Bros. Discovery merger. CEO David Zaslav has announced that the company is trying to cut its overall spending by $3.5 billion.
