Hello, friend. The wait is over. The revolution begins today at 5pm AEST when Presto streams the first two episodes of Mr. Robot, the same day as the U.S. broadcast. Following the Australian premiere, new episodes of Sam Esmail’s ground-breaking series will be available to stream every Thursday at 5pm AEST, express from the U.S.
In today’s double episode season premiere titled eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc and eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc, the consequences of the now infamous fsociety 5/9 hack on multi-national company E-Corp begin to emerge. We also see Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer who has become involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, thanks to their mysterious leader (Christian Slater) manage an internal struggle with the illusion of control.
Season 2 arrives following a global Facebook Live rant by fsociety which featured a direct message to Australians to “open their eyes to what’s really going on in the world”.
