'Mr. Robot' renewed for season 3 on USA Network
No big surprise here, but now it's official: Mr. Robot was just renewed for a third season, Mashable has confirmed.
The new season of the drama starring Rami Malek will premiere in 2017, although the number of episodes is still unknown. Mr. Robot's Season 2 order was upped in June from 10 to 12 episodes. The buzzy show recently nabbed six Emmy nominations.
"We couldn't be more proud of Mr. Robot, a series that has pushed boundaries, captured the cultural zeitgeist, and been honored as one of the best dramas on television," NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Networks president Chris McCumber said in a statement to Mashable. "Midway through its second season, Mr. Robot continues to break new ground and open up new opportunities for the network. We can't wait to see where Sam Esmail and the entire brilliant Robot team take us next."
In addition to more of Season 2 (the show wraps its polarizing sophomore season Sept. 14), there is also a forthcoming fiction book by series creator Sam Esmail and series writer Courtney Looney due Nov. 1.
