Mr. Robot is shutting down.
The USA Network series starring Rami Malek has been around since 2015 and has earned 2 Emmy Awards — one for Outstanding Drama Series and another for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for the 37-year-old.
The show’s forthcoming fourth season is scheduled to be its last, with the episode order expanded to 12 as opposed to its regular 8.
“I’ve always said it’s four or five seasons, and I’ve said that because I think it’s somewhere in between,” creator Sam Esmail told The Hollywood Reporter after the third season finale. “Whether that means the next two seasons are two short seasons, or it could technically still be two full 10-episode seasons, we’re still kind of figuring that out. It’s something the writers’ room and I take very seriously. We never want to feel like we’re treading water. Hopefully, it fits into two more seasons, but we’re trying to figure out that number.”
The final season of the cyber-security thriller is expected to start production in the winter and hit screens sometime in 2019.
