Hello, friend. Don’t let my dulcet tone of voice fool you. Mr. Robot Season 3 has an extensive new trailer, and both Evil Corp and what’s left of Elliot’s psyche look to be on the chopping block in the manic new footage.
Hello, friend. You’ve waited long enough for new episodes of Mr. Robot, and a first full Season 3 trailer is here to take the edge off that October premiere. Rest assured, Five/Nine was only the beginning.
Time is all we have after Mr. Robot delayed Season 3 from summer to fall, so it stands to reason time becomes a maddening taunt. See for yourself in the first formal Season 3 teaser, as ticking clocks put Elliot, Darlene, Angela and Mr. Robot himself on edge.
Guest stars are something of an afterthought when it comes to the sci-fi madness of Rick and Morty, but Season 3 won’t be without familiar voices. Not only will co-creator Dan Harmon stage another Community homage of sorts, but Susan freaking Sarandon will also lend her voice.
“The Boogie Nights of gay porn” sounds like a high bar to live up to, but the trailer for King Cobra makes it look like the film will do just that. It’s a true crime drama about a man breaking onto the gay internet porn scene in the mid-2000s, full of sex, intrigue, manipulation, betrayal, Christian Slater, James Franco, and, really, what more could you want?
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.
Wednesday night was apparently the hot one for TV parodies, as the same evening that saw Jimmy Fallon reuniting the cast of Stranger Things also saw Stephen Colbert hooding up for a Late Show parody of Mr. Robot. Still, we’ve got to ask the real questions – are we all just ones and zeroes in a game of Ms. Pac Man? How many Christian Slaters are there, really?
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.
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!
