USA Network is teasing the final Mr. Robot season today with a new image and they’re sending fans to WhoIsMrRobot.com/Origin to look for clues. The fourth season will premiere later this year and consists of 12 episodes.
The hit USA Network series Mr. Robot is going to end with its fourth season, according to THR. The show is set to end in 2019 with a reportedly expanded 12-episode order. Mr. Robot, starring Rami Malek (the upcoming Bohemian Rhapsody) will begin shooting the final season in New York over the winter. The expanded season will have the same number of episodes as Season 2, and is up from what was originally thought to be eight episodes.
Producer Sam Esmail previously said the following about the final Mr. Robot season: “When I first created the world of Mr. Robot, I thought it would be a niche television series with a small, cult following. Over the past three years, it has become so much more, and I am continually humbled by the show’s recognition and by the amazing cast and crew that work tirelessly to help bring my vision to life. Since day one, I’ve been building toward one conclusion — and in breaking the next season of Mr. Robot, I have decided that conclusion is finally here. Everyone on the creative team, including the amazing people at USA and UCP, didn’t want to say goodbye, but we ultimately have too much respect for Elliot’s journey to extend past its inevitable ending. Therefore, season four will serve as the final chapter of the Mr. Robot story. To fans of the show: thank you for the past three years, and I can’t wait to share this exciting final season with you.”
Mr. Robot follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer who, along with Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) and fsociety, starts a revolution to change the world. Season 4 will pick up where the third season finale left off, delving into the pros and cons of Elliot hitting “send” on the email that could reverse 5/9.
The series stars Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe nominee Malek, Golden Globe Award winner Slater, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallström, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer and Emmy Award nominee BD Wong. Mr. Robot hails from writer, director and executive producer Esmail, as well as Anonymous Content executive producers Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton.
Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) won an Emmy award for lead actor in a drama series for Mr. Robot and the show was nominated for Best Drama.
