‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Previews Elliot’s Dark New Reality in Cast Featurettes
Mr. Robot Season 2 anticipation will soon reach a fever pitch now that Amazon has the first full season available to stream, but why stop there? A full five (!) new featurettes from cast and creator Sam Esmail offer a wealth of new footage and small teases for fsociety’s return.
TVLine debuted five new featurettes for the forthcoming July premiere, including insight from Esmail and stars Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday and Carly Chaikin. Perhaps most intriguing, Esmail previews the transition from Elliot’s viewpoint into a more ensemble-based show, particularly point-of-view from the law enforcement investigating the “Five/Nine” hack.
While we wait for embeddable versions of all five (others available at the link above), here’s the Rami Malek featurette:
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.
