Prodigal Son star Aurora Perrineau is set to have a recurring role in Westworld's fourth season, Deadline reports.

While specific details about her character haven't been revealed, it's thought that she could be in a minimum of five episodes.

The third season of Westworld had a lot going on and it followed on from three months after season two's stories.

Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) managed to escape Westworld, but she didn't leave empty-handed as she had several processing cores, including the one belonging to Bernard (Jeffrey Wright).

Based in futuristic Los Angeles in 2058, Dolores fell into a relationship with Caleb (Aaron Paul), and from this connection Dolores was able to learn about how artificial beings and lower-class humans are treated in the real world.

Elsewhere, Maeve (Thandiwe Newton) was in a different part of the Delos park and ended up in Italy during WWII

The main cast starring alongside Newton, Wright, Paul and Wood include Tessa Thompson (Charlotte Hale), Ed Harris (William / The Man in Black), Luke Hemsworth (Ashley Stubbs), Simon Quarterman (Lee Sizemore) and Rodrigo Santoro (Hector Escaton) amongst others.

The third season also introduced us to Vincent Cassel, who played the role of Engerraund Serac – his character became the main antagonist introduced in the most recent series.

Westworld was created by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, who both executive produce on the series. It is based on the 1973 movie of the same name that was written and directed by Michael Crichton.

Westworld airs on HBO in the US, and on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
