Game of Thrones may be over for good, but don’t cancel your HBO subscription just yet because we’ve still got Westworld.


The trailer for the new season dropped before the very last episode of GOT aired, starring none other than Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, Bojack Horseman) and rapper Kid Cudi, who goes by Scott Mescudi in his acting roles.


The new season looks like it’s going to be different from what we’ve seen so far, this time focusing on Paul’s new character living in a sci-fi city. Not much is revealed about him other than he’s involved in some criminal activity. At least he’s no longer cooking up meth in a janky RV.


Soundtracked by Pink Floyd’s Brain Damage, the trailer gives us a glimpse of Mescudi about a minute in, dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit. At the end of the trailer, Paul’s character meets a familiar face to all Westworld fans – Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood).



This will be the second time Paul and Mescudi have worked together, after Need for Speed (2014). Kid Cudi was also recently cast in Dreamland, alongside Armie Hammer and Evangeline Lilly.


The third season of the HBO sci-fi drama will premiere in 2020.



Looks like Kid Cudi’s been keeping a busy schedule lately, with his collab with Adidas set to drop some time soon.
