HBO just surprised 'Westworld' fans by unexpectedly releasing the highly anticipated trailer for season 4 of the series. The surprise paid off as fans closely examine the details-rich trailer.

Created by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, 'Westworld' was developed as HBO's next big thing after 'Game of Thrones'. The first season was based on a story around theme park allowing rich people to fulfill their Western ambitions by riding horses, drinking in saloons and casually killing androids programmed to serve them. Fans loved the concept, so the showrunners' decision to leave the park in subsequent seasons was not taken lightly. Seasons two and three were poorly received by the fandom, but it looks like season four may reverse this unfortunate trend.

This recent trailer revealed a lot about what to expect in the upcoming season, with the series' famously great cinematography highlighted by the classic Lou Reed song 'Perfect Day'. In a discussion on Reddit, fans of the series collected all the clues about the upcoming events, revealing quite a few interesting moments.

First of all, Ed Harris's Man in Black is back, appearing in several scenes in the trailer, proving that he wasn't killed off in season three. This is great news for many fans of the character, desperate to see more of his chilling charisma in the future.

Second, it looks like there will be a brand-new theme park dedicated to the Roaring Twenties in the upcoming season. Two sequences in the trailer depicted something like a '20s boardwalk with old cars and period costumes, and Tommy gun firing relentlessly. Perhaps the introduction of a new park is what fandom really wanted to see in every following season?

Fans clearly got excited when they found out the release date for the fourth season of 'Westworld', which is just a couple of months away, on June 26.
