Mr. Robot Season 4 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 they’re guaranteed. Season 3 did, however, saw the end of the road for a couple of major characters like Tyrell’s wife Joanna Wellick (Stephanie Corneliussen) and Elliot’s fsociety co-members Trenton (Sunita Mani) and Mobley (Azhar Khan).

The other major players all survived season three, so expect to see Elliot’s sister Darlene (Carly Chaikin), Elliot’s childhood friend Angela Moss (Portia Doubleday), Tyrell (Martin Wallström), E Corp CEO Phillip Price (Michael Cristofer), Dark Army leader White Rose (BD Wong) and FBI agent Dom DiPierro (Grace Gummer).

Season three’s post-credits scene also saw the return of season one character Fernando Vera (Elliot Villar) who brutally murdered Elliot’s girlfriend Shayla, so he’ll play a role in the next season. “We’ll definitely explore the blowback from all of that with her murder and how Elliot assisted in breaking Vera out of prison,” teased Esmail to Deadline.

Less clear is whether we’ll be seeing menacing Dark Army stooge Irving (Bobby Cannavale) again after he killed FBI agent Santiago (Omar Metwally) in the season three finale, but Esmail is hopeful. “If there’s an opportunity to work with him again, I’ll do that,” he said of Cannavale.

Mr. Robot Season 4 Plot: What is it about?

The main arc of season 3 was whether or not Elliot could undo the hack of 5/9 and the damage of the E corp’s data. The finale made it seem like Elliot was successful in doing so despite all the Dark army’s tactics. Esmail has always spoken about a five-season run for M.r Robot, with season three acting as the end of act two if the show was a movie – and it seems that is still the plan.

“The plan was that basically toward the end of act two, he would reverse what he did, but still kind of be in a position of now pivoting and targeting the real top one percent that orchestrated the 5/9 hack behind his back,” he told EW.

In the finale of season ,3 it looked like Elliot and Darlene would be killed by Dark army’s assassin Leon (Joey Bada$$), before White Rose changed her mind, sparing Elliot and Darlene, potentially to keep them doing the Dark Army’s bidding. White Rose probably has more than one enemy to worry about. Angela was so convinced she was doing the right thing with Stage Two, until the Dark Army pulled their devastating move of blowing up 71 E Corp buildings, killing thousands. As if that wasn’t enough, the season three finale saw Angela discover that E Corp CEO – and her boss – Phillip Price was actually her father, so season four will likely see them team up to take down White Rose.

Not that the Dark Army doesn’t have moves of its own to make with Dom potentially being forced to be their new FBI inside man after the death of Santiago. “Dom is at a crossroads. She’s the most noble character to her cause in the entire series. She’s now in with the Dark Army in this brutal way and we’re going to see the aftereffects of that,” Esmail told Deadline.

Mr. Robot Season 4 Release Date: When will it premiere?
