It's likely they are making new characters for new storylines. It's also possible that a host was completely destroyed during a storyline (such as burned to ash or blown up) and required a complete rebuild.

There are generations of hosts. There are some that have been present since the park opened. These old hosts are more glitchy, robotic and mechanical in nature. The current generation of hosts are made of synthetic blood and bone. More cyborgs than robots. It is likely when a host gets upgraded, they simply upload their personalities in to the new model.

The show has one of the highest budgets per episode of a television series ever produced. With an approximate budget of $100 million for season one, each episode is said to cost around $10 million to produce, almost twice what HBO spent of Game of Thrones.

The score is written by Ramin Djawadi, who also created the Game of Thrones music. An official soundtrack was released on December 5, 2016.

In the season one finale, we learn that the sinister Man in Black is the same person as William, the first time visitor to the park whose adventure with Dolores forms one of the major stories of season one. There are several clues that the two are, in fact, the same person.

*The Man in Black says that he's been coming to the park for thirty years and William's story takes place at a different time than that of the others. When William arrives, the logo used for Westworld is different than the one used in the modern version of the park. The same logo can be briefly seen in a flashback which Ford has to the early days of the park. This shows that William's storyline is taking place at a different time and probably in the early, troubled, days of the park.

*Robert Ford tells a story about how the park was in financial trouble after Arnold's suicide and that it was rescued by outside investors, the Delos board, who Theresa works for. Logan tells Williams that the park is losing money and that their company is looking to invest more heavily in it. Later, when Ford and the Man in Black talk, it becomes clear that he's the one who provided the financing which bailed out the park.

*When William first visits the park he is given an orientation by the host Angela. Later, the Man in Black meets Angela, this time riding as part of Wyatt's gang, and recognizes her, expressing surprise that she's still around after all this time. He also tells Angela that he's been to "the city swallowed by sand". This is the buried Escalante, which William and Dolores visited on their adventure.

*The Man in Black indicates that he has long term and significant relationships with both Dolores and Lawrence. Both of these hosts play important roles in William's first visit to the park.

*The Man in Black tells Lawrence that, in a sense, he was born in the park. This echoes comments which William makes to Dolores about how he feels reborn.

*Both the Man in Black and William make similar comments about how the park reveals the true nature of a person.

*The Man in Black says that on his first trip to the park he cut open a host to see how it worked. This is a distorted memory of when Logan cuts open Dolores to prove to William that she's just a machine.
