Over the course of three seasons, the universe of Westworld has expanded from a simulated amusement park to a futuristic Los Angeles in the 2050s where questions of free will and revaluation abound. The first two seasons of Westworld received a combined 42 Emmy nominations and three wins. Based on the film by Michael Crichton, Westworld was created for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, who are executive producers with Denise Thé, J.J. Abrams, Athena Wickham, Richard J. Lewis, and Ben Stephenson.
