Following-up on the release of our first look at Bobby Cannavale's "laconic, no-nonsense used car salesman" Irving, USA Network announced Friday afternoon an official premiere date for Season 3 of the network's hit thriller-drama series Mr. Robot has been set. As a way of "celebrating" the announcement, USA Network has also released a new trailer for the upcoming third season entitled Democracy.
So I guess it's safe to say that Irving's not your average used car salesman?
Mr. Robot's third season will debut on Wednesday, October 11 at 10:00 pm /9 pm Central on USA Network, who will also promote the new season with marathon broadcasts of the previous two seasons as well as making past episodes available across other platforms (on-demand, streaming, etc.).
The third season of Mr. Robot is expected to immediately address the second season cliffhanger that left Elliot (Rami Malek) in a (spoiler-free) "dire situation." USA Network is on record saying that the third season will delve deeper into the personal motivations of each character and and roadmap the steadily disintegrating trust between Elliot and Mr. Robot.
Along with Malek and new addition Cannavale, the series also stars Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday (Angela Moss), Carly Chaikin (Darlene Alderson), Martin Wallström (Tyrell Wellick), Grace Gummer(Dominique "Dom" DiPierro), Michael Cristofer (Phillip Price), Stephanie Corneliussen (Joanna Wellick) and BD Wong (Whiterose/Zhang). Sam Esmail is the writer and exec producer, along with Anonymous Content executive producers Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton.
From USA Network:
"Golden Globe® award-winning series Mr. Robot, will return to USA Network for a third season in 2017. The series follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer who became involved in the underground hacker group fsociety after being recruited by their mysterious leader (Christian Slater), who he later discovered to be the projection of his dead father. Following the events of fsociety's five/nine hack on the multi-national company Evil Corp, Season 2 explored the consequences of the attack as well as the illusion of control."
