Even when Season 2 just started, a lot of "Mr. Robot" fans are positive that the show will be renewed for Season 3. The drama-thriller series is critically acclaimed, and it has a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The plot of Mr. Robot is unique and the storyline gives challenging opportunities for the cast.
According to Independent, "Mr. Robot" Season 3 filming will start soon, and Rami Malek and Christian Slater will return to reprise their roles. Also, there were some previous reports claiming that the series may return this summer, which is incorrect.
Sam Esmail will direct all Season 3 episodes, and the show will pick up immediately after last season's cliff-hanger. NBC Universal Cable Entertainment boss Chris McCumber said in a statement that Esmail is a "true creative visionary" who continually delivers a show that is boldly relevant to current issues and "leans into the major headlines of the day." He also added that Season 3 will engage viewers in a whole new way.
The series will have an exciting new addition in Season 3. Bobby Cannavale from "Boardwalk Empire" will join the show as a series regular, and he will play Irving, "a laconic, no-nonsense used car salesman." BD Wong, who plays as the Dark Army's leader, Whitrose, will now become a regular on the show.
The official Twitter account of the series teased the air date of the show, in a manner that's intriguing and frustrating at the same time. They shared a series of complex codes that needs to be cracked, but hardcore fans did not have trouble decoding it at all.
Entertainment Weekly reported that the bosses are giving Esmail more time to do "Mr. Robot" Season 3, and so fans can expect for the show's return to be in October yet. The upcoming season will still have 10 episodes, and production will begin this month in New York.
