Could 'Westworld' Season 3 Be Paying a Visit to This Chinese City?

Okay, okay, so we’re fully aware that the trailer for the third season of HBO’s Westworld has been out for over two months at this point – after being released at Comic Con 2020 back in July, but we’re a busy bunch and just got around to watching it. But let’s get down to brass tacks: After watching the first trailer for the hit show’s third season, we’re excited to announce that it looks like at least one Westworld character is coming to China.

In the near-three-minute preview, Dolores – the sweet farm girl turned badass robot revolutionary – is shown grabbing a bevvy on what appears to be a Shanghai patio, with the mighty Shanghai Tower visible in the background.

As far as we know, no scenes from Westworld’s third season were shot in China, with TheWrap noting Singapore and Los Angeles as filming locations. It is possible that episodes were filmed in other destinations, though, or that some cheeky editing transported Dolores to Shanghai.

There have been numerous clues that China plays some kind of role in the show’s events (Maeve chatting in Chinese with visitors to her saloon in the series’ premiere, among other examples) and much speculation amongst fans. And a visit to China makes sense, the show is popular here, with Westworld’s second season receiving over 100 million views on QQ Video.

What is China’s role in the series? And does Dolores actually visit Shanghai? We have no f*cking idea – but we’re excited to find out more when season three debuts on HBO in the first half of next year.
