Mr. Robot‘s almost back: get ready to open your laptop, plug those earbuds in, and get paranoid as hell.
Oh hell yeah, it’s time for more Mr. Robot, a show about Rami Malek just wearing hoodies really well while typing on a laptop for forty minutes. After a longer than usual wait since the end of last season—a trend in television these days, it seems—the show seems eager to jump back into things, with all sorts of new beeps and boops to throw our way, along with new mysteries and further cyber-fueled disasters looming in the distance. You’ll likely remember lots of scheming—as Tyrell made his grand return at the very end of season 2, the Dark Army went rogue, and Evilcorp looked to reassert itself in the newly-crashed economy.
The trailer for season 3 just plunges right into things, with everyone on the razor’s edge and loads more schemes underway. It’s also certainly not telling us everything, because if Mr. Robot has one defining trait, it’s lying to everyone who watches it. (It also has many other defining traits, like B.D. Wong being incredible and Christian Slater being devious and weird cameos from Joey Badass—but the lying part is extra important.)
Watch it below, come up with some theories, or just get excited to watch people do some aggressive hacking of democracy on TV:
Honestly, we don’t blame you if you’re a little lost—it’s been a full year since the season 2 finale, and there has been a lot of TV in the meantime. We’re all probably going to have to do a bit of refreshing if we’re going to be able to keep up with this show.
Mr Robot returns October 11, 2017, just in time for peak hoodie and laptop season.
