“Westworld” showrunners and married couple Lisa Joy and Jonah Nolan have left Warner Bros. Television, both previously having individual overall deals with them. The pair have instead inked a rich nine-figure, four-year overall deal with Amazon said to be worth upward of $30 million per year.
The pair will continue to oversee “Westworld” as writers and executive producers for the life of the series and there reportedly are no plans to bring in a new showrunner for a potential fourth season or beyond as remaining at the helm of “Westworld” is a top priority for the pair.
The show’s third season is currently in production for a likely 2020 airing and the drama has yet to be renewed beyond that. Joy & Nolan are expected to create original series to premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video worldwide, including the already announced adaptation of William Gibson’s “The Peripheral” which has a script-to-series commitment.
