Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul joins the cast of Westworld season 3
'Westworld' show-runners said they have been planning the forthcoming season ever since the pilot episode aired back in October 2016
'Westworld' has been renewed and Aaron Paul from 'Breaking Bad' will now be joining the TV show’s upcoming third season. So, there's obviously more than one reason to celebrate the hit sci-fi drama.
Producers of the show have remained quiet about the character Paul will be playing but it’s believed he’ll be a series regular, according to Deadline. Showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy promised a ‘radical shift’ in season three and it appears Jesse Pinkman’s alter ego is the answer.
Paul has earned many accolades for his portrayal of a small-time drug dealer Jesse Pinkman on 'Breaking Bad', including five supporting actor Emmy nominations and three wins. 'Westworld' showrunners have been planning the forthcoming season ever since the pilot episode aired back in October 2016. "Yes, season three of Westworld is definitely going to be a big undertaking," Nolan told TheWrap, while Joy added; "Yes, it is our biggest undertaking as of yet."
Revealing a few more details, she added, "The great thing about season three is, when we were writing the pilot, the major storyline for season three was already something that we had talked about non-stop."
"We’ve been waiting to get to this place and, now that we’ve arrived here, we already have a very strong idea of exactly where we want to go and we can’t wait to go there."
Fans have been trying to decode what she meant by being "there" but have no clear answers. However, with Paul now joinging the show, we cannot wait to find out what the makers have in mind.
