Westworld season 4: James Marsden returns as Teddy Flood

Last Updated on June 7, 2022


Season 4 of the Westworld television series will begin airing on HBO on June 26th, and during an ATX TV Festival panel this past weekend it was revealed that James Marsden (X-Men) will be reprising the role of Teddy Flood on the new season. The Hollywood Reporter notes that this is a big deal because Marsden’s character hasn’t been on Westworld since the penultimate episode of season 2.

Based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 film Westworld, the TV show has the following synopsis: 

Westworld isn’t your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park — which is looked after by robotic “hosts” — allows its visitors to live out their fantasies through artificial consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park’s guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged. 

Marsden’s season 4 co-stars will include fellow returning cast members Evan Rachel Wood, Thandiwe Newton, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Luke Hemsworth, Aaron Paul, and Angela Sarafyan, as well as new addition Ariana DeBose, who recently won an Oscar for her performance in Steven Spielberg’s take on West Side Story.

Some of these characters have appeared to be killed off before, but death isn’t always permanent when a story is about robots.

The Westworld series was created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, who executive produce the show with Alison Schapker, Denise Thé, J.J. Abrams, Athena Wickham, Richard J. Lewis, and Ben Stephenson.

I still haven’t watched anything Westworld-related other than the ’73 film and its 1976 follow-up Futureworld, but I am going to get around to checking out this TV show one of these days.
