“Mr. Robot” Season 3 will not come out until next year, but a few details about the next installment have already been teased by series creator Sam Esmail.
During a panel attended by Screen Actors Guild (SAG) voters, Esmail said the theme for the upcoming installment of the critically acclaimed USA Network series is “disintegration,” according to Deadline. Esmail added that the show features different stages of Elliot’s (Rami Malek) battle with a mental disorder.
“The Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) character has to reflect what stage Elliot is in, and how to handle that disorder,” Esmail said. “The second season was about the battle.” He explained that since Elliot didn’t want to have Mr. Robot in his life anymore, this made Mr. Robot extremely agitated.
Aside from the next stage in Elliot’s battle, fans will also learn what Angela’s (Portia Doubleday) real intentions are. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Esmail teased: “Has she really been flipped? Or is she now playing some other motivation? And I think that’s great. I know that people sometimes get frustrated that we leave Angela’s motivations in the dark, but I think that’s what adds to the intrigue of her.”
Another thing fans can look forward to is Leon’s (Joey Bada$$) fortified arc. In a response to a fan’s query, Esmail tweeted: “Leon is definitely a character to look out for in season_3.0.”
Bada$$ also shared his thoughts about what’s to come for his character in the show. Speaking with MTV, the rapper-actor said his character will have a “killer” plotline next year. Fans should also keep an eye out on what his character will do after finding Trenton (Sunita Mani) and Mobley (Azhar Khan). While many believe that Bada$$’s character will kill the fsociety hackers as ordered by the Dark Army, Bada$$ said things may not happen as expected in the next installment.
“Mr. Robot” Season 3 has not been given a release date.
