The actor who played Ashley Stubbs in Westworld, Luke Hemsworth, has commented on the show’s cancellation. 

The 1973 Michael Crichton film of the same name served as the basis for the sci-fi western television series Westworld, which centered on the namesake theme park and its android hosts’ struggle for independence in the outside world. 

Westworld, created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, was set to end with season 5, and Nolan and Joy were even in talks for a sixth and final season. 

However, HBO decided to terminate the show owing to poor ratings and reviews, leaving many devoted viewers extremely upset. 

Hemsworth expressed his disappointment with the cancellation of Westworld in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Hemsworth acknowledges his gratitude for being part of Westworld but claims that learning of its cancellation on his 42nd birthday caused him the most pain. 

“You hope these things go forever, but everyone’s got their own reasons. I’m very thankful for my part in that series and that journey was a big part of my life, but yeah it was disappointing… I think the idea right from the start was to go full circle and come back to be about loops, to be about human beings and robots being stuck in that trajectory. " Hemsworth said.

Hemsworth claims that, like the Westworld showrunners, he anticipated that season 5 would bring the full series circle and that it would have been appropriate given the tone of the program 

Even yet, the primary Westworld cast (Thandiwe Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Ed Harris, and Aaron Paul) will still be compensated for season 5 

After Westworld was canceled, there was an immediate outcry from the audience, which prompted supporters to establish a petition to keep season 5 alive.
