‘Mr. Robot’ Goes to Some Dark Places in New BTS Season 2 Trailer
July seems like a criminally long wait for the second season of USA’s breakout drama Mr. Robot, but not nearly as much time will have passed after Elliott’s fsociety hack. A new Season 2 trailer sets the stage thirty days after the “Five/Nine” event, teasing the nooks and crannies of Elliott’s worsening breakdown.
The Hollywood Reporter debuted a new trailer featurette that will hit movie theaters in National CineMedia’s FirstLook pre-show starting Friday, bringing a bit of new footage along with interviews from stars Rami Malek and Christian Slater, as well as creator Sam Esmail.
Now set for a July 13 premiere, Season 2 additions include Aasif Mandvi, Craig Robinson, Grace Gummer as Dominique (Dom) DiPierro, a young FBI field agent investigating the Evil Corp Hack, Chris Conroy as Derek, the new man in Joanna’s life, and rapper Joey Bada$$ as Leon, a new close friend of Elliot’s. Fear The Walking Dead alum Sandrine Holt, Michael Maize, Dorothi Fox and Luke Robertson have also secured guest roles.
Additionally, both Michael Cristofer and Stephanie Corneliussen have joined the cast full time, the former in his role as Evil Corp CEO Phillip Price, and the latter as Tyrell Wellick’s increasingly-frightful spouse Joanna. Ben Rappaport and Tom Riis Farrell will also return as Ollie and Bill.
More details will likely emerge in the coming weeks, so watch the first trailer again below, check out some viral promos, and stay tuned for the latest on Mr. Robot Season 2.
