"We’re not yet discussing publicly the direction the show is taking, but the fun thing about this show is, you know, from the beginning Lisa (Joy) and I wanted to make a show that constantly reinvented itself, that could be a different show every season," says co-showrunner Jonathan Nolan, speaking along with Joy and executive producer Denise Thé, who co-wrote the finale with Nolan. Thé says of the finale: "I think that it was painful, you know? It was painful to watch and perform on set. It was painful to write." ALSO: Westworld producers say this season as an opportunity to "play around" with different genres.
