Mr. Robot Season 2: Expanded, Longer Premiere & Aftershow Announced!

at . Comments

Mr. Robot returns to USA in just under one month and we couldn't be more excited. 

Mr. Robot Season 2 was previously announced to span 10-episodes, but that's no longer the case.

An additional two episodes have been tacked on, so we're now looking at a 12-episode sophomore run for the show. 

Also, the premiere has been pumped up to two back-to-back episodes with limited commercial interruption. 

Great news, right?!

USA Network is no doubt rewarding the series for the constant recognition it keeps getting the network.

Every single time you hear about TV Show awards these days, they almost always includes Mr. Robot winning something. 

The show is THAT good. 

It's one of the best shows on all of television and we can't wait for it to return. 

We only hope that the momentum will continue into the new season. 

It would suck if Mr. Robot became the latest show to suffer from the dreaded sophomore slump. 

Aside from a longer premiere and bigger season, USA has also confirmed that a live after show will debut right after the premiere. 

Hacking Robot will be the name of it. 

It will be a behind the scenes look at the show and it will be totally live. 

You can expect cast and crew to be on board to speak about the crazy developments of the first two episodes. 

It's unclear whether Hacking Robot is a one time thing, or if it will run throughout the season.

Either way, we'll be watching.

Mr. Robot Quotes

Is any of it real? I mean, look at this. Look at it! A world built on fantasy. Synthetic emotions in the form of pills. Psychological warfare in the form of advertising. Mind-altering chemicals in the form of... food! Brainwashing seminars in the form of media. Controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven't lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century. We turned it off, took out the batteries, snacked on a bag of GMOs while we tossed the remnants in the ever-expanding Dumpster of the human condition. We live in branded houses trademarked by corporations built on bipolar numbers jumping up and down on digital displays, hypnotizing us into the biggest slumber mankind has ever seen. You have to dig pretty deep, kiddo, before you can find anything real. We live in a kingdom of bullshit. A kingdom you've lived in for far too long. So don't tell me about not being real. I'm no less real than the fucking beef patty in your Big Mac.

Mr. Robot

There's a saying -- 'The devil is at his strongest while we're looking the other way.' Like a program running in the background silently. While we're busy doing other shit. 'Daemons,' they call them. They perform action without user interaction. Monitoring, logging, notifications, primal urges, repressed memories, unconscious habits. They're always there, always active. You can try to be right, you can try to be good, you can try to make a difference. But it's all bullshit. 'Cause intentions are irrelevant. They don't drive us, daemons do. And me? I've got more than most.
