In a very smart move, USA has officially announced that “Mr. Robot” will return for a third season. The series was recently nominated for six Primetime Emmys and consistently voted one of the best shows on the air.
Mr. Robot follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer with mental health problems, who becomes involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, after being recruited by their leader (Christian Slater). Following the events of fsociety’s five/nine hack on multi-national company Evil Corp, the second season explores the consequences of that attack as well as the illusion of control.
The series also stars Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallstrom, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer and Stephanie Corneliussen.
Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, said,
“We couldn’t be more proud of Mr. Robot, a series that has pushed boundaries, captured the cultural zeitgeist, and been honored as one of the best dramas on television. Midway through its second season, Mr. Robot continues to break new ground and open up new opportunities for the network. We can’t wait to see where Sam Esmail and the entire brilliant Robot team take us next.”
Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and President, Universal Cable Productions added,
“Being the home studio for this wonderful, completely original show is an exhilarating experience. Sam and company just keep taking it to another level. We can’t wait to get going on Season 3… as soon as we finish Season 2!”
