The long-awaited final season of “Mr Robot” is getting closer, with USA announcing on Wednesday that the Sam Esmail-created hacker drama will return in the fall.
The network also released a brief teaser, which you can watch above, which sees an offscreen voice asking Rami Malek’s Elliott “how many people have you hurt?” The fourth and final run will take place over the Christmas holiday in 2015 and, according to the network, “will be filled with hacking, splashed with blood and answer the series’ most pressing questions.”
“Mr. Robot” premiered in 2015 and marked the network’s shift from its “Blue Skies” programming aesthetic to darker and edgier fare, which included shows like “Colony,” “Queen of the South” and “The Sinner.”
The series stars Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallström, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer and BD Wong. “Mr Robot” comes from writer, director and executive producer Esmail, as well as Anonymous Content executive producers Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton.
When it returns, it will be almost two years since its last season, which ended in December of 2017. In that time, Malek was filming his Oscar-winning turn as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury in “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Esmail was directing the first season of Amazon’s “Homecoming.”
