‘Mr. Robot’ Teases a Changed World in First Season 2 Teaser
Despite having only recently begun production, the second season of USA breakout Mr. Robot will remains under some pretty intense security. Case in point, the first Season 2 teaser promises a very different world and an uncertain future beyond, but will we actually get to see any of it?
Drafted to help spread USA’s new tagline “We the Bold,” a first teaser of sorts for Mr. Robot Season 2 doesn’t bring any actual new footage, but rather returns Rami Malek’s Elliot to deliver some cryptic narration on the divide between the powerless and the powerful. Amid the colorful revolution imagery, so says our fsociety leader:
You see it too, don’t you? There are no guarantees anymore. No easy paths to follow. The future’s never been less certain. They use that to scare us and keep us in line … tell us we’re powerless to do anything about it. The truth is we have more power than they think. The power to take action, to choose to do something -anything.
Anything but blindly following the herd and accepting that this is just the way things are. They can only keep us down if we let them. Together we can change the world, change our future and there’s nothing they can do to stop us.
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 stay tuned for the latest on Mr. Robot Season 2.
