USA Network’s drama-thriller, “Mr. Robot” had two successful runs and the show has been officially renewed for a third season, giving fans a huge sigh of relief realizing that they could learn more about the true identity of lead character Elliot (Rami Malek). In the third offering, fans and observers expect a storyline that can equal or even surpass the intrigue of the first two.
A recent report said that the American series has in fact started production for the third season, even though it only has been barely a week since season 2 ended. Well, USA Network is probably rushing production knowing the potential of the thriller to become a lot bigger in the upcoming seasons.
As far as expectations are concerned, the show’s creator, Sam Esmail, told Deadline in a recent interview that the upcoming season will actually be flavored with some episodes and a plot that are based on actual events, especially in the political aspect.
“The sentiment and the outrage and the support of Donald Trump; the groundswell by which he rose to become the Republican nominee, that sort of atmosphere is going to be used in the ‘Mr. Robot’ universe and amplified by this great economic collapse which is happening like a slow car accident,” Esmail revealed.
Politics is a subject matter that this kind of show can in no way completely ignore or avoid, considering that it relies a lot on technology as it is used in war. Unlike previous conflicts carried out through weapons, “Mr. Robot” puts emphasis on modern warfare involving economics, politics, and information technology.
There also is a possibility that more characters will be showcased in season 3, as this is just a sign that it is growing to a more versatile show than what was previously thought. And with nominations and wins in the Emmys and Golden Globes, “Mr. Robot” is most likely here to stay for a long time.
“Mr. Robot” season 3 should return by the second quarter of 2017.
