Mr. Robot was one of my favorite television shows of this year. From the series’ surprise twists and turns, to the interesting framing and composition, to the almost up-to-the-minute commentary on our modern world, to the refreshingly accurate look at computer systems and hacking. Sure it didn’t always hit a home run, and I think a lot of us saw that last twist coming a mile away, but it did so many things right. I’m excited to the see where the story goes in the second season, especially now that “the cat is out of the bag”.
Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail and some of the cast appeared at New York Comic Con over the weekend, and revealed some information on the second season. We also take a look at some of the previous quotes from Mr. Esmail and cast, as well as some rumors (including when we might expect to see the second season premiere). Hit the jump to find out what was revealed.
