We’ve been waiting almost a year for this and finally on July 13th, Mr. Robot, the 2015 Peabody Award and Critics’ Choice Award Winner, returns for its second season! Starring Golden Globe and SAG Award Nominee Rami Malek and Golden Globe Award Winner Christian Slater, the series follows Elliot, a cyber-security engineer by day and vigilante hacker by night, who joins hacker group fsociety and its mysterious leader played by Slater.

If you haven’t seen Mr. Robot yet, I highly encourage you to do so. I was hooked within the first 5 minutes and it’s without a doubt one of the most original and interesting series currently on TV.

Season 2 of Mr. Robot will explore the consequences of fsociety’s 5/9 hack on multi-national company Evil Corp and the illusion of control.

The series also stars Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer and Stephanie Corneliussen. The second season will feature some new recurring guest stars including Craig Robinson (“The Office”), hip hop artist Joey Bada$$, Sandrine Holt (“Fear The Walking Dead”), Michael Maize (“National Treasure: Book of Secrets”), Dorothi Fox (“Run All Night”) and Luke Robertson (“The Americans”).

In case you have forgotten how good season 1 was or just need a quick recap, you can watch the Mr. Robot Season 1 [Spoiler] Recap video below. I have also included the Season 2 trailer, as well as a special episode exploring the authenticity and societal impact of Mr. Robot. Enjoy!

Season 2 of Mr. Robot premieres on Wednesday, July 13th at 10/9c on USA Network.
