‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Gets Additional Episodes, Double Premiere, New Trailer and More!
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!
Ahead of its July 13 premiere, Mr. Robot Season 2 has officially upped its order from 10 episodes to 12, simultaneously expanding the premiere to two hours (those episodes gotta go somewhere). The premiere will be followed by hourlong after-show Hacking Robot, though it remains unclear if the series will air weekly.
And hey, why stop there when BuzzFeed has a brand-new trailer?
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 watch the first trailer again below, check out some viral promos, and stay tuned for the latest on Mr. Robot Season 2.
