Mr. Robot renewed for season four at USA Network
USA Network has announced that their hit drama series Mr. Robot has been renewed for a fourth season. Series creator and executive producer Sam Esmail posted on Instagram that the writer’s room for the series is officially open. Esmail also directed every episode of the second and third seasons of the series (in addition to three episodes in the first season).
The show’s season three finale airs tonight on the network and star Christian Slater recently nabbed a Golden Glob nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Television series.
Mr. Robot stars Rami Malek (the role for which he won an Emmy) alongside Slater, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallstrom, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer, Bobby Cannavale, and BD Wong.
Mr. Robot follows Elliot Alderson (Malek), a former cyber-security engineer who became involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, after being recruited by their leader (Slater). The group successfully pulled off their five/nine hack on multi-national company Evil Corp in the first season, causing a global catastrophe and sending the world into a spiral in the second, with season three Mr. Robot has focused on the manipulation of people as White Rose and Elliot battle for control in their own respective ways.
