‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Clip Reveals Tyrell Wellick’s Fate (Sort Of)
Of the many questions Mr. Robot will hopefully answer by next week’s Season 2 premiere, chief among them is likely that of Tyrell Wellick, whose mysterious disappearance spurred along a great deal of last year’s finale. Now, our first full clip from the new season takes us back to his and Elliot’s missing night, and let’s just say you’ll want to reach for the popcorn.
Mr. Robot released the new Season 2 clip over Facebook (preceded by a lengthy countdown clock, and an address from *someone* in the fsociety mask, so feel free to skip to 4:57), taking us inside the moment of the “Five/Nine” hack from Tyrell and Elliot’s perspective. Elliot seems more than a little off, given we know he’d lose all memory of the event later, but what’s that? Our old friend Chekhov, hiding in the popcorn machine?
In addition to an extended order, double-premiere and after-show, 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 arrive next week, so watch the first trailer again below, check out some viral promos, and stay tuned for the latest on Mr. Robot Season 2.
