Westworld, everyone’s favorite nightmare-inducing AI drama, will return next year, HBO has confirmed.

Season 3 casting news is also continuing to come out about Westworld: Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) will join the third season, and Lena Waithe confirmed this weekend that she will too. HBO’s Westworld premiered in 2016 and it’s based on the 1973 movie of the same name. The HBO show is led by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and stars Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson and Luke Hemsworth. Westworld season 2, named The Door, earned six Emmy nominations, including a win for Thandie Newton for outstanding supporting actress, and two best actor nods (for Wright and Harris).
