HBO will take viewers back to Westworld in the first quarter of 2020. 

The premium cabler network announced Sunday that Westworld Season 3 will debut Sunday, March 15, 2020, at 9/8c. 

By the time the series returns, it will have been off the air for 21 months. The production demands of such a high-concept series makes it difficult to commit to airing one a year.

As you may recall, Westworld Season 2 came to a thrilling conclusion with the Dolores and the rest of the robots fighting for their freedom. 

When Westworld Season 3 picks up, the robots will be in the real world, and that will only continue to ramp up the drama. 

A previous trailer released at San Diego Comic-Con last year teased many new locations, giving the series a different tone. 

The first two seasons did get a terrific response from fans, but the common consensus was that the world needed to expand, and that's exactly what is on tap in the new installments.

We have a futuristic Los Angeles in which humans and aliens coexist.

That's very different from anything we've seen on the show to date.

Dolores, once again, takes center stage and is worried that the end is fast approaching for her kind, and that will present some more issues. 

Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) is a new addition to the cast, and he will be an integral part of the Los Angeles storyline.
