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.
Like the Fight Club that help inspired it, Mr. Robot likely had a tough time explaining its exact premise in Season 1 promotion, but increased visibility for Season 2 is taking fsociety nationwide. See for yourself in two new viral clips from Season 2, as both the news and Obama himself respond to the changing state of world affairs after mastermind (?) Tyrell Wellick’s attack.
Tilt your head and get ready for some weird composition, Mr. Robot is officially back for Season 2! After a long wait, the breakout USA hacktivist drama is back for more mindf—ery than ever, as the official Season 2 trailer picks up with Elliot’s lost days, while President Obama himself is feeling the crunch of fsociety’s deeds.
Fsociety, consider this your call to arms. After all the anticipation surrounding Mr. Robot Season 2 (so big, the first teaser couldn’t include any footage), USA finally has a premiere for Elliot’s new world order. Mr. Robot will officially return for Season 2 in July, but when?
We don’t know when exactly this summer USA’s breakout hit Mr. Robot will see Rami Malek and Christian Slater squaring off again for Season 2, but the wait for a first look is already over. Our first photo from the new season has arrived, along with additional castings that tease new details of the season breakdown.
FX’s Archer made up for a late start to the year with an impressive shot-for-shot remake of the Magnum P.I. opening credits, but it seems the Tom Selleck spoof was more than homage. Our first Season 7 details confirm the former spy team will move to California to start a new agency, with guest turns from J.K. Simmons to Patton Oswalt.
USA’s Mr. Robot cemented its status as one of TV’s best with a drama win at the Golden Globes, but Season 2 still has a world of work ahead of it. Not only has USA firmed up a summer 2016 premiere, but cast and crew also offered details on the second season (and what we missed from the first!) from the TCA press tour.
There weren’t terribly many laughs to be had over the course of USA’s first Mr. Robot season, trading in moody, off-center cyber-noir moreso than gags. Thankfully, you can revisit all those angles in a new light, courtesy of the Mr. Robot gag reel, in which Christian Slater may, or may not fart upwind of Rami Malek.
USA hacker drama Mr. Robot made a tremendous impression throughout its inaugural season, one the Golden Globes clearly shared this morning, and Season 2 may yet prove even more focused. The series’ unique visual style will be in full swing, as creator Sam Esmail has opted to direct the entire ten-episode season himself, a significant increase over last year.
A culmination of its breakout critical success, USA hacker drama Mr. Robot had previously scheduled to air its first season finale later tonight, but has now been delayed. USA issued a press release postponing the broadcast over “similar” depicted events to the tragic on-air shootings that occurred in Virginia early Wednesday morning.
