USA Network’s Golden Globe® Award-Winning Drama, “Mr. Robot,” returns for a 12-episode season 2 with a premiere night event that includes back-to-back new episodes (presented with limited commercial breaks) and a newly-announced live after show.
“The first season of “Mr. Robot” was everything we hoped for – and then some,” said Chris McCumber, President Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “So it’s no surprise that Sam and team have raised the bar even more in season two. From the first moments of the new season, it’ll be clear that audiences are in for something incredibly special and wholly unexpected.”
"Mr.Robot" follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer who becomes involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, after being recruited by their mysterious leader (Christian Slater).
The July 13 episodes, “eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc” and “eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc,” will pick up 30 days after the now infamous fsociety 5/9 hack on multi-national company Evil Corp. Season 2 will explore the consequences of that attack as well as the illusion of control. The live after-show, “Hacking Robot,” will debut immediately following the season premiere on July 13.
