USA Network will be giving the critically acclaimed dramatic series Mr. Robot one final season to wrap up storylines. The network confirmed the series will be back for a fourth and final season which is expected to air in 2019.
Filming will get underway later this year in New York.
“When I first created the world of Mr. Robot, I thought it would be a niche television series with a small, cult following,” said creator, showrunner and director Sam Esmail. “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 4 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.”
The ensemble includes Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe nominee Rami Malek, Golden Globe Award winner Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallström, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer and Emmy Award nominee BD Wong.
“From the beginning, Mr. Robot proved to be a show unlike any other on television, capturing the zeitgeist of our modern times with a unique point of view and definitive vision,” stated Chris McCumber, President, USA Network. “Working with Sam and the entire cast and crew has been nothing short of incredible – and we can’t wait to reveal the complete Mr. Robot story.”
Commenting on the final season, Co-Presidents of Universal Cable Productions Dawn Olmstead and George Cheeks said, “The story of Mr. Robot is completely original and exhilarating – striking a cultural chord at just the right time. As we begin production on the final chapter of this iconic series, we want to thank Sam for his unparalleled vision, the masterful crew and the passionate cast who breathe life into these rich characters.”
The Plot: “Mr. Robot follows Elliot Alderson (Malek), a cyber-security engineer who, along with Mr. Robot (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.
