Based on the 1973 science fiction film of the same name written and directed by Michael Crichton, the acclaimed adaptation takes place in a near-future where human guests travel to a variety of resorts recreating different historical periods, including the titular Wild West park known as Westworld, with each environment fully staffed by android residents known as hosts programmed to serve their visitors' every desire.

The Emmy Award-winning series recently saw the hosts begin to gain sentience and try to escape the resort to enter the real-world while hunting the human guests that had imprisoned and abused them for decades all in the name of tourism.
