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!”
“Mr. Robot” follows the story of Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek, “The Pacific”), a cyber-security engineer who becomes involved in the underground hacker group, fsociety, after being recruited by their leader (Christian Slater, “Nymphomaniac”). Following the events of fsociety’s five/nine hack on the multi-national company Evil Corp, the second season explores the consequences of that attack as well as the illusion of control.

And also stars Portia Doubleday (“Her”), Carly Chaikin (“Suburgatory”), Martin Wallström (“Simple Simon”), Grace Gummer (“The Newsroom”), Michael Cristofer (“Ray Donovan”) and Stephanie Corneliussen (“Legends of Tomorrow”).
