Mr Robot renewed for series three
Mr Robot has been renewed for a third season on USA Network.
Despite the second season only being halfway through its run, the news comes as little surprise due to the hacking drama being the network’s most acclaimed show ever.
Mr Robot tells the story of cybersecurity engineer Elliot Alderson, who is recruited by an insurrectionary hacking group led by an anarchist known as ‘Mr Robot’. The so-called ‘hacktivists’ aim to take down the large multinational firm where Elliot is employed.
The series was nominated for six Emmy Awards in 2016, including Best Drama and Best Actor for star Rami Malek. It has already won two Golden Globes, including Best Drama, a Peabody Award, three Critics’ Choice Awards and the TCA Award for Outstanding New Program
Chris McCumber, President of Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, said: “We couldn’t be more proud of Mr Robot, a series that has pushed boundaries, captured the cultural zeitgeist, and been honoured as one of the best dramas on television.”
“Midway through its second season, Mr Robot continues to break new ground and open up new opportunities for the network.”
Mr Robot is available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in the UK, where episodes premiere the day after transmission in the States.
