The Super Bowl came and went Sunday night, and there was no advertisement for season three of “Westworld.”

Despite the fact the hit HBO show had aired a promo in the past during the big game, there was no new look at season three when the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers. (RELATED: The Trailer For ‘Westworld‘ Season 3 Has Been Released. It’s Absolutely Insane)

I had speculated prior to the game that fans could be in for another preview. Unfortunately, as the minutes ticked by, we got nothing.

I don’t fault HBO for not airing an ad during the Super Bowl. Spots were going for more than $5 million for 30 seconds.

At the same time, “Westworld” is one of the most successful shows on TV, and it feels like it’s been a lifetime since we last got new episodes.

Dropping a new promo for season three during the Super Bowl would have amped people up in a major way.

Instead, we’ll have to wait a little longer before we see another preview for the third season of the HBO hit with Ed Harris.

Life doesn’t always give you what you want! Hopefully, we get a new trailer sooner or later for season three, which returns at some point in 2020.

Until then, we’ll just have to keep guessing.
