‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Gets Additional Episodes, Premiere After-Show

Mr. Robot” Season 2 is getting an upgrade, with USA Network adding two additional episodes to the drama’s episode order. USA has also announced that Season 2 will premiere with two back-to-back episodes, presented with limited commercial interruption on July 13, beginning at 10 p.m., followed by a special live after-show.

The drama will expand from its previously ordered 10 episodes to 12, with “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail directing all 12 installments. The live after-show, “Hacking Robot,” will debut immediately following the season premiere on July 13.

“The first season of ‘Mr. Robot’ was everything we hoped for – and then some,” said Chris McCumber, President Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “So it’s no surprise that Sam and team have raised the bar even more in Season 2. From the first moments of the new season, it’ll be clear that audiences are in for something incredibly special and wholly unexpected.”

“Strap in! The extraordinary ride that is ‘Mr. Robot’ continues with a wild Season 2. It’s a brilliant and immersive journey that demands to be watched again and again,” said Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and President, Universal Cable Productions and Wilshire Studios.

The thriller follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a cyber-security engineer who becomes involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, after being recruited by their mysterious leader (Christian Slater). The July 13 episodes, titled eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc and eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc, will pick up 30 days after the now infamous fsociety 5/9 hack on multi-national company Evil Corp. Season 2 will explore the consequences of that attack as well as the illusion of control.

The drama hails from Universal Cable Productions, writer and executive producer Sam Esmail and Anonymous Content executive producers Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton. “Hacking Robot” is executive produced by Aliyah Silverstein and is a Wilshire Studios production.
