The truth is, we have more power than they think.
There isn’t really any new footage in this trailer that USA released to get us pumped up for the sophomore season of the hit show anti-society series Mr. Robot but the message is clear. fsociety’s followers need to seize the moment. Carpe Diem, if you will. Rami Malek’s character Elliot says in the voice over for the trailer, “Together we can change the world, change our future, and there’s nothing they can do to stop us.” The trailer ends with this season’s tagline: We the Bold.
At the end of season 1, Elliot and fsociety pulled off their grand hack of Evil Corp. This trailer hints at Elliot dealing with the aftermath and going one step further in destroying the banks that run our civilization – all while dealing with his own mental illness. As he says, “The future has never been less certain.”
Mr. Robot season two premieres some time this summer.
MR. ROBOT is a psychological thriller that follows Elliot (Rami Malek, “24”), a young programmer, who works as a cyber security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader (Christian Slater, “The Adderall Diaries”) of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the corporation he is paid to protect. Compelled by his personal beliefs, Elliot struggles to resist the chance to take down the multinational CEOs he believes are running (and ruining) the world. The series also stars Portia Doubleday (“Her”), Carly Chaikin (“Suburgatory”) and Martin Wallström (“Simple Simon”).
