USA Network released the first teaser for the second season of ‘Mr. Robot;’ Sam Esmail’s show was the surprise hit of the 2015 summer. ‘Mr. Robot’ won two Gloden Globes last year, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series (Christian Slater), and Best Television Series – Drama.
From the trailer, it looks like Elliot has some more chaos to unleash. It will be interesting to see who the show handles Slater’s character in season two.
MR. ROBOT is a psychological thriller that follows Elliot (Rami Malek, “24”), a young programmer, who works as a cyber security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader (Christian Slater, “The Adderall Diaries”) of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the corporation he is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world. The series also stars Portia Doubleday (“Her”), Carly Chaikin (“Suburgatory”) and Martin Wallström (“Simple Simon”).
Mr. Robot is expected to return to USA Network this summer.
