Luke Hemsworth is speaking out about the cancellation of Westworld. Since the start of the science fiction series in 2016, the actor has played the head of security Ashley Stubbs. On Tuesday, he spoke with Entertainment Tonight about HBO’s shocking announcement that Westworld had been canceled after four seasons.
At the Limitless premiere for his brother Chris Hemsworth’s new Disney+ series, Hemsworth said, “You hope these things go forever, but everyone’s got their reasons.” “I’m grateful for my involvement in that series, and the voyage played a significant role in my life. However, it was depressing.
Hemsworth said that the fact that the cancellation came on his 42nd birthday only made things worse: “I was like, ‘Fuck! Dammit!'”
He continued by saying that he was optimistic about what a fifth season may have offered viewers. “I think the premise was always to come full circle and be about loops, to be about people and technology being bound in that trajectory,” Hemsworth concluded. We occasionally lose contact, but that’s just the way things are. You can’t let it make you depressed. As you progress, other doors open up.
Following a steep decrease in linear ratings for season three, HBO decided to cancel the expensive Emmy-winning series from co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. The fourth season’s last episode, which was broadcast in August, continued this trend. HBO expressed its “tremendous gratitude” to Nolan and Joy and the “very talented cast, producers, and crew” in a statement regarding the cancellation.
Evan Rachel Wood, Thandiwe Newton, Tessa Thompson, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, and James Marsden were among Hemsworth’s series co-stars.
