There’s no need to worry about Mr. Robot being cancelled this time around. USA Network has already decided that there won’t be a fifth season. Will the ratings get better in season four of Mr. Robot because it’s the end of the show? Stay tuned.
A psychological thriller series, Mr. Robot stars Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallström, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer, and BD Wong. The story centers on Elliot Alderson (Malek), a young hacker with social anxiety and depression. He’s recruited by an anarchist named “Mr. Robot” (Slater) to join a group of hacktivists called “fsociety”. Their goal is to destroy all records of debt by encrypting the financial data of the world’s largest conglomerate, E Corp. Season four begins with the pros and cons of Elliot hitting “send” on the email that could reverse 5/9.
