‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Trailer Promises ‘Control Is an Illusion’

USA Network has released the first trailer for Season 2 of breakout hit “Mr. Robot,” along with first looks at the cabler’s upcoming drama series “Shooter” and “Falling Water.” The network unveiled the new promos during NBCUniversal’s Upfront presentation in New York on Monday.

Mr. Robot” Season 2 will premiere Wednesday, July 13 at 10 p.m., and follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a young cyber-security engineer who becomes involved in the underground hacker group “fsociety” after being recruited by their mysterious leader (Christian Slater). In the trailer, the world is still reeling from the group’s last hack — even President Obama is weighing in on fsociety — and Elliot is trying to account for the three days of missing time he experienced after that night.

The drama — which nabbed Golden Globes for Best Drama and Slater’s performance in its freshman season, as well as a Peabody Award — hails from writer and executive producer Sam Esmail, along with Anonymous Content executive producers Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton. The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions.

Shooter,” premiering this summer, is based on “Point of Impact,” the bestselling novel written by Stephen Hunter, and the 2007 Paramount film starring Mark Wahlberg. The TV adaptation stars Ryan Phillippe and Omar Epps and follows the courageous journey of Bob Lee Swagger (Phillippe), a highly-decorated ex-Marine sniper who is coaxed back into action after he learns about a plot to kill the President. The series is executive produced by Wahlberg of Closest to the Hole Productions; Stephen Levinson of Leverage Entertainment; and Lorenzo di Bonaventura. John Hlavin wrote the pilot and will also executive produce, while Simon Cellan Jones directed. “Shooter” is a co-production between Paramount Television and Universal Cable Productions.

Falling Water,” slated for fall, is the story of three unrelated people who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. The deeper they dig, the more they come to realize that the visions found in their common dream just might hold the key to the fate of the world. The series, from Universal Cable Productions, is executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd of Valhalla Entertainment, Blake Masters and the late Emmy Award-Winner Henry Bromell. David Ajala, Will Yun Lee and Lizzie Brochere star.
