James Marsden, who plays Teddy in Westworld, has recently come out registering his disappointment with the cancellation of the series. “I'd be lying to you if I told you that the way we ended Westworld wasn't a disappointment,” he puts it succinctly.

The Emmy-winning sci-fi series was cancelled by HBO in 2021 after just 3 seasons. The cancellation was a part of the change in leadership at Warner Bros, which is currently the parent company of HBO. The dwindling readership numbers and the mounting production cost were given as the reason for its cancellation. The series creators Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan had previously stated that they were planning to wrap up the story with two more seasons.

Westworld stars Evan Rachel Wood, Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Wright, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton, Tessa Thompson, and Aaron Paul alongside Marsden. 

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the actor said, “I'm never going to speak without gratitude about any of my experiences, but it would have been nice to be able to complete the story we wanted to finish. I love this Westworld family. It was one of those unique opportunities to be part of something where I also would be sitting at home ravenously waiting for the next episode as a fan.”
