Lest you have enough trouble distinguishing the reality of USA’s Mr. Robot, one of the series’ most important mythologies has a real-world counterpart. Following this week’s revelatory hour (or so), watch the full Careful Massacre of the Bourgeoisie that inspired fsociety for yourself!

Just the other day, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s long-awaited Pump finally seemed to move forward with an exploration of bodybuilding culture’s origins, but will cultural successor Dwayne Johnson beat him to the punch? The Rock has his own Muscle Beach drama greenlit at USA, and there’s bound to be some overlap.
Gun violence in America was enough of an issue without USA frantically trying to schedule its Shooter adaptation around mass shootings, and it seems another rash of destruction has the network on edge. Following an already-delayed premiere, Shooter will now move to fall 2016 in deference to the Baton Rouge attacks, potentially even changing its title.
Crazily enough, it’s getting harder and harder to schedule violent TV in between mass shootings. Where weeks ago TNT opted to reschedule The Last Ship Season 3 over its depiction of a nightclub shooting, USA’s aptly-named Shooter will now hold off a week in deference to the Dallas sniper attack.
Early expansion of Mr. Robot Season 2 guaranteed that the second chapter of fsociety’s big hack bursting at the seams, and we needn’t wait longer for any actual evidence. The revolution is on, as USA releases the full Mr. Robot Season 2 premiere days ahead of schedule!
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.
Boy, if ever you thought Mr. Robot Season 2 needed a stronger push into its July premiere, today is your day. Not only has the new season expanded to 12 episodes, but USA has a new trailer and your requisite Talking Dead-style after-show to boot!
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.
Even with some of its biggest twists already unraveled, Mr. Robot left off its first run in a tantalizing spot for Season 2, the economy in shambles after fsociety’s “Five/Nine” attack. Now, three new teasers reveal a world of work ahead, as Darlene laments not having finished Evil Corp off for good.
Fans of USA breakout drama Mr. Robot are already anxious enough to find if Season 2 can capture the same cerebral madness as its predecessor, let alone what to make of a third season, or the two mapped out beyond that. Ahead of Season 2 at least, we know Season 3 will target a fairly imposing figure, with an eye toward casting Michael Shannon in the role.
