“Mr. Robot” Season 2 will probably return to USA Network either late June or July 2016 and is expected to keep its time slot.
“Mr. Robot” tells the story of computer hacker Elliot (Rami Malek), who gets involved with ag group of hackers led by Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) who want to bring down tech company E Corp. Mr. Robot, co-stars Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin and Martin Wallström. It was created by Sam Esmail who executive produces with Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton.
Vigilante hacker Elliot Alderson, Rami Malek’s character, has been wearing a black hoodie for most of the first season. But he will be trading up for Mr. Robot season 2.
Malek recently said mean that his character is not “unkempt.”
“There is just a level of callousness to the way he treats things, like getting dressed,” Malek told Stuff magazine. “He likely prefers a uniform because it is one less thing to think about!”
Malek suggested the look to show creator Sam Esmail.
“They initially came to me with sketches from the designer that included this very loud and colorful backpack,” Malek told Stuff.
“I am, like, ‘I cannot wear this. This guy would not wear this.’ I, kind of, had this mild panic attack inside, like, ‘This is not the way I see things. Where are we going with this?'”
Esmail said the ‘Mr. Robot’ season finale will bring on new challenges for the hacker. He is trying to damage “Evil Corp” but is going up against the two villains played by Michael Cristofer and BD Wong.
Esmail says he can see USA Network’s TV series “Mr. Robot” running five years. He also spoke about the upcoming season 2.
“I think the first season, there’s a lot of character development. To me, none of the thrilling elements work if you don’t have a character that’s fleshed out, that feels real, that you can relate to or empathize with or understand,” Esmail told ET.
“So we’re always doing both. But at the end of the day, what a good story is, for me, is really about a person and how they’re growing and how they’re evolving. The emotional journey is 100 percent the heartbeat of the show. And that’s something that we’ll never lose.”
