Hey, Mr Robot fans! Guess what? Mr. Robot season three is set to premiere on the USA network in October… OCTOBER! Look, I love this show, and I’m pumped up for what season three of the crazy hacker thriller is going to bring us.
The news comes from Variety, who also reports that Bobby Cannavale (Ant-Man, Vinyl) is joining the series as a character named Irving, described as “a laconic, no-nonsense used car salesman.” BD Wong has also jumped on board as a series regular. He was previously a guest star as a transgender hacker named Whiterose, who is part of the Dark Army hacker group.
Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBC Universal Cable Entertainment had this to say in a statement:
“Sam Esmail is a true creative visionary who continues to deliver a series that boldly tackles timely issues and leans into the major headlines of the day. We’re eager to share the next phase of Elliot’s journey with fans this fall.”
Jeff Wachtel, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment’s chief content officer added:
“Season 3 of ‘Mr. Robot’ will engage viewers in a whole new way, with Sam and team continuing to find ways to surprise, challenge and delight the audience. And adding Bobby Cannavale and BD Wong to our cast makes one of the tightest acting ensembles even stronger.”
The series stars Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallström, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer, and Stephanie Corneliussen.
