Mr. Robot is a drama about a young programmer, Elliot, who suffers from a debilitating anti-social disorder and decides he can only connect to people by hacking them. Elliot finds himself in the intersection between a cyber security firm he works for, his hacking exploits at night, and the underworld hacking organization trying to recruit him to help bring down the 1 percent.
USA Network announced today that Mr. Robot has been renewed for a fourth season. The good news comes ahead of tonight's Season 3 finale and just days after star Christian Slater picked up his third Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actor in a TV series.
The perennially low-rated drama has continued to impress both critics and its core fan base across all three of its seasons. Despite its small audience, USA Network obviously sees value in sticking with such a highly-regarded series that always seems to be included in the conversation around most television-related awards shows.
There is no word yet on a premiere date for Season 4, but a late 2018 return appears likely. Earlier today, series creator Sam Esmail took to his Instagram account to announce that the writers' room has officially opened for next season.
