When will Mr. Robot season 2 premiere? We are waiting for exact start date on USA Network! What about release in 2016?
Before its launch on TV, the series Mr. Robot became the topic for discussions on numerous movie forums, as it had already been featured on different digital platforms. This psychological drama by Sam Esmail has been positioned as one of the main newcomers of USA Network of summer 2015 and now we can say with confidence that the TV-project proved itself as a worthy one and deserved to be broadcast.
The plot follows the story of Elliot Rogers – a young cyber-security engineer in daytime and a vigilante hacker by night. The main character should make a difficult choice when the mysterious leader of the surreptitious hacker group tries to recruit him in order to destroy the corporation Allsafe Security, which Elliot provides his security services to. Due to his personal beliefs, Elliot tries to resist the opportunity to throw down the leaders, who, he thinks, rule the world destroying it.
Rami Malek performs the main role. He could be remembered by the sitcom The War at Home on FOX or by the mini-series The Pacific on HBO. It premiered on June 24, 2015 and the number of viewers, watching the first episode, comprised 1.75 million people.
The debut was quite successful, despite the fact that some critics were talking about a false sense of realism and terrible dialogues. However, most experts’ reviews were positive, which contributed to the good rating on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb. President USA Network in one of his interviews, made on the premiere day of the show, reported that one season wasn’t enough for such an interesting series, so the renewal was already being discussed. Such a rapid renewal for Season 2 became a surprise for both fans and critics; however, they assessed such rights holders’ step positively. At the moment it is known that the premiere date of the second part of the story is scheduled for summer 2016 and it will consist of 12 episodes. Sam Esmail and all the main actors have already extended their contractual agreements with the channel.
Mr. Robot season 2 premiere date – [July 13, 2016] (at 10/9c)
Now we should only hope that the show will keep its fans during the broadcast of the first season and will meet the creators’ expectations. Otherwise, USA Network will reconsider its decision.
