After a rather dull Season 2, USA Network’s hacker drama, ‘Mr. Robot’, came back with a bang in Season 3, leaving fans eagerly waiting for Season 4. To fans’ relief, USA Network officially renewed ‘Mr. Robot’ just before Season 3’s finale aired back in December 2017, with show creator Sam Esmail later taking to Instagram to reveal that writing had already begun for the new episodes. On the other hand, to fans’ dismay, USA Network also announced that Season 4 would be the final season of ‘Mr. Robot’. Filming for the highly anticipated Season 4 commenced on February 25, 2019, and the season is expected to be aired some time later this year.
Mr. Robot Cast: Who is in it?
Quite simply, it wouldn’t be ‘Mr. Robot’ without Rami Malek and Christian Slater as Elliot Alderson and his dead father/alternate persona respectively, so of course they’re guaranteed to make a return in Season 4. Season 3 did, however, see the end of the road for a couple of major characters like Tyrell’s wife Joanna Wellick (played by Stephanie Corneliussen) and Elliot’s fsociety co-members Trenton (played by Sunita Mani) and Mobley (played by Azhar Khan).
The other major characters all survived Season 3, so expect to see Elliot’s sister Darlene (played by Carly Chaikin), Elliot’s childhood friend Angela Moss (played by Portia Doubleday), Tyrell (played by Martin Wallström), E Corp CEO Phillip Price (played by Michael Cristofer), Dark Army leader Whiterose (played by BD Wong) and FBI agent Dom DiPierro (played by Grace Gummer) in Season 4.
Season 3’s post-credits scene also saw the return of Season 1 character Fernando Vera (played by Elliot Villar), who had brutally murdered Elliot’s girlfriend Shayla, so you can expect him to play quite an important role in the upcoming Season 4. “We’ll definitely explore the blowback from all of that with her murder and how Elliot assisted in breaking Vera out of prison,” Esmail has teased.
Less clear is whether we’ll be seeing the menacing Dark Army stooge, Irving (played by Bobby Cannavale), again after he killed FBI agent Santiago (played by Omar Metwally) in the Season 3 finale. However, Esmail had given fans a glimmer of hope earlier, saying, “If there’s an opportunity to work with him again, I’ll do that.”
Mr. Robot Plot: What is it about?
The main arc of Season 3 was about whether or not Elliot could undo the hack of 5/9 and the damage done to E Corp’s data. The season finale, however, made it seem like Elliot was successful in doing so, despite all efforts taken by the Dark Army to stop him. In the finale of Season 3, it looked like Elliot and Darlene would be killed by the Dark Army’s feared assassin, Leon (played by Joey Bada$$). However, Whiterose changed her mind and spared Elliot and Darlene, probably to keep them around for doing the Dark Army’s bidding in future.
