The hacker drama will continue in 2018.
December 13, 2017
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.
Mr. Robot follows a young, anti-social programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer during the day but spends his nights as a vigilante hacker. He finds himself in a quandary when the anarchist leader of an underground hacker group recruits him to take down the powerful corporations that he believes are running, and ruining, the world.
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.

The Verge reports that Mozilla (Firefox web browser) has surreptitiously inserted a Mr Robot plugin (called Looking Glass) into the latest Firefox web browser. This was done with the help of USA and the Mr Robot team. The plugin causes popups providing clues to some lame Mr Robot game which annoys unsuspecting users (most users). So this browser baggage is courtesy of a real life Evil Empire - the "Mr Robot team" at USA network - another good reason not to watch this show.

I enjoyed the show until I found out Mr Robot wasn't real. I still watched season 2 despite that. However, the psychological aspect bored me and I quit watching after season 2.

I have been watching since Episode 1 and love the internal fight. That was such a great revelation. I am enthralled by the computer work and the realism of how weak our security is. While the realism of Evil Corp does not work for me the characters and writing are amazing. Living in this kids head is the most stressful place to be. Can wait to see what they do next.

I stopped watching after season one even though it was barely ok. Its setting and dominant characteristic or feel was the haze of a drugged out stupor. Simultaneously, the can't-get-any-higher hero was a thoroughly active computer genius. The creators, along with the USA network, constantly reminded us how brilliant the show was, and how realistic it was. It was no more realistic, probably less realistic, than any other TV show, with gratuitous doping and perversion. All of which made an otherwise barely ok show, with its self-congratulatory creators, definite things to avoid. Nevertheless, I'm curious to hear how those who continued to watch it, enjoyed it, or not really?

Good show but hard to watch if you have young kids or are on the phone a lot. I save it for rainy days
