‘Mr Robot’ Season 2 To Explore Character’s Past, Present And Future | TV News
Coming off its recent Golden Globes win, US hit show Mr. Robot is ready to kick off its second season, with creator Sam Esmail sharing some details on what we can expect of the story. He told reporters at the Television Critics Association (via IGN): “The series is filling in the blanks of the past and the present and even the future of this character… You’re this close to the painting, you take a step back and then you see more of it”.
The end of season one saw drug-addled, hacker extraordinaire Elliott Alderson (Rami Malek) finally come face to face with the reality of his delusions, resulting in a shocking twist surrounding the character of Mr. Robot, and the coming season, according to Esmail, seeks to explore how Elliot comes to terms with these revelations, as well as the various mysteries surrounding the shows other characters.
As for the the twists that were prevalent in season 1, Esmail says he wants to explore deeper into Elliott’s mind, resulting in more organic character driven developments and isn’t interested in “…gotcha moments, or trying to shock the audience or surprise you – even though it happens…It’s not my agenda to keep shocking you. It really isn’t”. Season 2 is expected to premiere in the summer of 2016.
