The USA Network has let us know that Mr. Robot is indeed coming to an end. While we won’t see any upisodes in 2018, the series will go out with an expanded season four in 2019. Just how many episodes or when the season will debut is still unknown.
“When I first created the world of Mr. Robot, I thought it would be a niche television series with a small, cult following,” said series creator, showrunner, and director Sam Esmail. “Over the past three years, it has become so much more, and I am continually humbled by the show’s recognition and by the amazing cast and crew that work tirelessly to help bring my vision to life. Since day one, I’ve been building toward one conclusion – and in breaking the next season of Mr. Robot, I have decided that conclusion is finally here. Everyone on the creative team, including the amazing people at USA and UCP, didn’t want to say goodbye, but we ultimately have too much respect for Elliot’s journey to extend past its inevitable ending. Therefore, Season 4 will serve as the final chapter of the Mr. Robot story. To fans of the show: thank you for the past three years, and I can’t wait to share this exciting final season with you.”
“From the beginning, Mr. Robot proved to be a show unlike any other on television, capturing the zeitgeist of our modern times with a unique point of view and definitive vision,” said Chris McCumber, President, USA Network. “Working with Sam and the entire cast and crew has been nothing short of incredible – and we can’t wait to reveal the complete Mr. Robot story.”
Dawn Olmstead and George Cheeks, co-presidents of Universal Cable Productions: “The story of Mr. Robot is completely original and exhilarating – striking a cultural chord at just the right time. As we begin production on the final chapter of this iconic series, we want to thank Sam for his unparalleled vision, the masterful crew and the passionate cast who breathe life into these rich characters.”
Mr. Robot debuted in 2015 and season 3 wrapped up in Dec. 2017. With production on the fourth season not having begun yet, we’ll probably be waiting for some time before we see this come to a close.
