Fsociety will return to fight again, as Mr. Robot renewed for a third season

surveillance tool hacked smart devices 2016 emmys outstanding drama series mr robot
Just as fans have begun to get enraptured once again by the hit USA Network series Mr. Robotnow in its second season, the show has officially been renewed for a third, which will air in 2017, according to Deadline.

In the drama series, breakout star Rami Malek plays Elliot Alderson, a reclusive hacker who comes across a mysterious man named Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) and his group called fsociety, who attempt to convince Elliot to help take down the conglomerate E Corp. — or, as they call it, Evil Corp. While Alderson has good intentions, often acting as a vigilante hacker, of sorts, he finds himself mixed up in events that make the story riveting.

Currently five episodes into season two (the first few ran an extra 15 minutes or so), the show has become even more deliciously warped. So, it’s no surprise that the network has already given the green light for a third season.

The show has received numerous accolades — it garnered six Emmy nominations, including one for Outstanding Drama Series, putting it in the company of popular series like Game of Thrones and House of Cards, and a nod for Malek himself as Outstanding Lead Actor.

Created by Sam Esmail and Universal Cable Productions, Mr. Robot has managed to remain strangely topical, exploring what appear to be fantastical issues that end up occurring in real life. The season one finale had to be postponed by a week because of similarities to the shooting of reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward that occurred in Virginia on the same day the episode was set to air.

Season 2, which debuted July 13, will conclude after 12 episodes on September 14. The season 2 premiere was followed by a live aftershow called Hacking Robot, where the events of the episode were dissected by host Andy Greenwald and guests stars Esmail, Malek, and Slater, along with actors Carly Chaikin, who plays fsociety member Darlene, and Portia Doubleday, who plays Angela, an old friend of Elliot’s. A second Hacking Robot will air following the finale.
