At the end of its second season, Westworld teased a new frontier: the world outside the park. Now that fans have gotten their first real glimpse of it, the anticipation for Westworld Season 3 is ramping up. From new cast members to the premiere date, here's what we know about the show's upcoming run.

THE FIRST TRAILER OFFERS A PEEK AT THE SERIES' EXPANDING WORLD.

The trailer is most notable for the fact that you don't realize it's a Westworld trailer until nearly the end. Few familiar faces and an entirely different landscape. We can see that the "real" world (i.e. the realm beyond the park) is a futuristic and sleek, full of flying machines, self-driving motorcycles, and robots (the obvious kind). But there's a distinct dystopic bent—technology hasn't made everything better. The trailer also introduces a new character, played by Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad). His voiceover offers insight into his psyche, while viewers watch him commit a crime or two—then, he finds an injured Dolores walking through the street. "You need help?" he asks, before the preview cuts to black.

PAUL ISN'T THE ONLY NEW CAST MEMBER.

Lena Waithe, known for appearing in Master of None and creating The Chi, has signed onto Westworld season three. Vincent Cassel (Black Swan) has also joined the show.

THE HUSBAND-AND-WIFE DUO BEHIND THE SHOW, JONATHAN NOLAN AND LISA JOY, ARE KEEPING PLOT DETAILS UNDER WRAPS.

But Joy did give a few thematic hints to the Guardian. "We saw some of the heroes stumble [in season two]," she said. "They made sacrifices that they may have found unconscionable before, but the exigencies of the circumstances changed what once was absolute morality into something more subjective. So I think we’ll continue to play with sympathies throughout."

THERE'S NO OFFICIAL PREMIERE DATE.

For now, HBO has only promised that Westworld's third season will bow sometime in 2020.
