It was back in September we first heard that The Purge director James DeMonaco had in mind to develop an “interwoven anthology” series around the franchise, but with few updates since. Now, Blumhouse is reportedly co-producing a Purge series for USA and Syfy, and already writing.
If you thought perhaps we were overdue for Mr. Robot news, you weren’t wrong. Not only do we now know that Elliot and fsociety will be back for Season 3 later than expected, but they’ll also have Bobby Cannavale and a new series regular in tow.
If you thought the cord-cutters’ market was aggressive before, just wait until you get a load of YouTube TV. The online video staple announced the full scope of its live TV bundle, complete with unlimited cloud DVR and a moderate monthly subscription fee.
The second season of USA’s Emmy-winning Mr. Robot took us into a world rocked by economic upheaval and uncertainty, which now bears more than a passing resemblance to our own. As such, creator Sam Esmail “leaked” a new script page from the third season, in which Elliot reacts to the election of Donald Trump.
After a season’s worth of buildup and fake-outs, Mr. Robot capped off its Emmy win with another mind-boggling finale’s worth of light answers and more questions. Perhaps most surprising of all was the “post-credits” scene that saw not one, but three unexpected returns, while creator Sam Esmail lays out both Star Wars and Donald Trump influences on Season 3.
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31. Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
There’s no un-ringing the conspiracy theory bell, and Mr. Robot may be learning that the hard way. After a breakout year with just enough twists to keep voracious Redditors humming, Season 2 has struggled to generate the same mystery, and indeed saw its biggest twist uncovered as early as the premiere. Now. showrunner Sam Esmail chimes in, admitting “we didn’t really hide it that well.”
The world behind USA’s Mr. Robot has gotten just nutty enough that we wouldn’t be surprised by some elaborate video game twist, but the series has done us one better. Telltale enables cans to enter the world of Mr. Robot for themselves, with a new game app keeping in contact with the show’s characters.
USA’s Mr. Robot doesn’t yet have the same universal acclaim in Season 2 as before, but nonetheless remains dedicated to finishing Elliot’s fractured vision. USA confirms Mr. Robot will return for Season 3 in 2017, assuming fsociety doesn’t knock out all our TVs by then.
You’d probably have trouble explaining Mr. Robot to a friend without at least one use of the word “weird,” and last night’s Season 2 midpoint “eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes” may have upped that quotient considerably. As if a sitcom dream sequence featuring ALF and a Full House-type theme song weren’t enough, Mr. Robot actually had their respective creators perform the bits.
