The critically loved and award winning Mr Robot will soon be back on our screens and the teaser trailer has appeared online. The ending of season 1 has left us with more questions than answers and we’re dying to know what happened during Elliot’s blackout, where is Tyrell and who was at the door!
Sam Esmail returns to direct all 10 episodes of Season 2 and Rami Malek returns as Elliot Alderson. Christian Slater will be back even after his character’s secret was revealed. Alongside the other reoccurring cast members, the second season will also see some new characters including an FBI agent investigating the hack, a new love interest for Joanna Wellick and Elliot’s friendship group expands to a couple of neighbourhood locals.
The synopsis doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know:
MR. ROBOT is a psychological thriller that follows Elliot (Rami Malek, “24”), a young programmer, who works as a cyber security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader (Christian Slater, “The Adderall Diaries”) of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the corporation he is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world. The series also stars Portia Doubleday (“Her”), Carly Chaikin (“Suburgatory”) and Martin Wallström (“Simple Simon”).
The Mr. Robot season 2 premiere date is confirmed as July 13th 2016 and will be on Amazon Prime in the UK, on a weekly basis, hours after.
