Premiering June 26, the new season picks up in the wake of the events of Season 3, which took the AI uprising out of the theme parks

into the real world and saw the evil AI Rehoboam plotting to destroy humanity.

Android Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) had appeared to overpower the supercomputer but in the process she had her own artificial intelligence deleted.

So as the eight-episode season opens, the fate of humanity hangs in the balance but the apocalypse, if the season’s trailer is any indication, is not yet upon the planet.

In addition to Wood, cast returnees include Ed Harris, Thandiwe Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Aaron Paul, Tessa Thompson, Luke Hemsworth and Angela Sarafyan.

And Ariana DeBose (“West Side Story”) appears in a recurring role as an undisclosed human character.

Few other details were available about the new season, other than the one-line HBO description, “A dark odyssey about the fate of sentient life on Earth.”

But Lisa Joy, the series’ showrunner, co-creator and executive producer (with husband Jonathan Nolan), was willing to offer some illumination.

“This season, humans have their freedom,” she said, “but the hosts still exist, albeit a little more under cover.

So the question is: Will they once again vie for control? Will they compete to control the world or is there some other way in which they can cohabitate?
