The trailer for season two of Mr Robot is here!
In case you’re new to the series, here’s the quick sell: Sam Esmail’s Mr Robot stars Rami Malek as Elliot Alderson, a brilliant-but-troubled computer hacker, and Christian Slater as Mr. Robot, a mysterious agitator who enlists Elliot’s help.
SEASON ONE SPOILER WARNING:
Season two picks up after fsociety’s 5/9 hack on Evil Corp and will explore the consequences of the attack, as well as the illusion of control. In addition to Malek and Slater, Portia Doubleday (Angela), Carly Chaikin (Darlene), Martin Wallström (Tyrell), Michael Cristofer (Phillip Price), and Stephanie Corneliussen (Joanna) return in season two, which is currently shooting in New York City.
Esmail, who in an unprecedented move is also directing all 10 episodes of the new season, is introducing the character Dominique “Dom” DiPierro into the story this year. Grace Gummer will play Dom, a young federal agent investigating the hack. Also joining the cast this year is Craig Robinson as Ray, a neighbourhood local who reaches out to Elliot in his time of need; rapper Joey Bada$$ as Leon, a new friend of Elliot’s who philosophises on the meaning of life; and Chris Conroy as Derek, the young and attractive new man in Joanna Wellick’s life.
Season Two of Mr Robot will launch on Presto on 14 July.
