USA Network has renewed the hacker drama "Mr. Robot" for a third season, which will premiere in 2017. The number of episodes is not yet known. It was reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
The series, which debuted in 2015, was renewed for a second season a few hours before its premiere on the cable channel. On the same day, production studio Universal Cable Productions signed a new contract with show creator Sam Esmail, according to which, in addition to writing the script, Esmail directed every episode of the second season. As of this writing, it is unclear if he will continue to fulfill these same responsibilities in Season 3.
The renewal brings the show closer to its finale, which Esmail talked about in a media interview this year. "From the very beginning, literally at the stage of selling the pilot, I said, that the series will not last longer than four, maximum five seasons. The channel and the studio are aware that our show must end the way it should, and not just stretch out as hard as we can. I think my opinion is respected and supported, "Esmail said in particular.
Despite the drop in the ratings of the second season by 20 percent compared to the first, the studio management is pleased with the views of the show on the record, on online services and on Amazon Prime.
