The thriller Mr Robot was one of the breakthrough TV hits of 2015. The show premiered on the USA Network in June last year, and went on to win both critical acclaim and a variety of awards. A new trailer has been released for the second season–check it out below:
The show stars Rami Malek as cybersecurity engineer and hacker Elliot Alderson, who is recruited by a mysterious activist group. Christian Slater co-stars as an anarchist who uses the pseudonym “Mr Robot.”
The first season of Mr Robot was a notable success at this year’s Golden Globes, claiming the prize for Best Television Drama Series, as well as Best Supporting Actor for Slater.
In a recent interview with Digital Trends, the show’s creator Sam Esmail spoke about what fans could expect from the upcoming season. “Season two gets really dark, really fast,” he revealed. “It’s even darker [than season one]. We’re still nervous with every episode. We’re afraid people are going to hate it and call us out as frauds, or whatever. But we definitely love the attention.”
Mr Robot season two premieres on July 13, 2016.
