Will Season 4 be the end of the show?
Mr. Robot could come to an end after its fourth series. Christian Slater, who plays Mr. Robot, has told fans he believes Season 4 will be the show’s last.
The American thriller debuted in 2015 and also stars Rami Malek as Elliot Alderson – a hacker who becomes involved with a hacktivist group called “fsociety” led by insurrectionary anarchist leader Mr Robot.
The series was officially renewed for a fourth season back in December, with the show’s official Twitter account releasing a teaser trailer, along with the caption: “We have plenty more battles to fight. #MrRobot has been renewed for season_4.0.” The show’s creator Sam Esmail later added that the writer’s room was “officially open for business.”
Now, Slater has revealed that he believes this season will be the show’s last. “I believe that will be the last season. Sam always said it was going to be somewhere in that zone, and he didn’t want to go further than what he could creatively contribute to that storyline,” he told Collider.
“So, I think that season 4 will be it. I think they’re in the writers’ room as we speak, putting it all together, but I have no idea what it’s gonna be, or if I’m gonna be floating in and out of scenes. I have no idea, so we’ll see what happens.
“Mr Robot has been relevant as to what’s been going on in our current society and the horrors that we’re dealing with,” he added. Nothing has officially been announced, so fans shouldn’t be too disappointed just yet.
Meanwhile, Mr. Robot’s Rami Malek is gearing up to star as the late Freddie Mercury in the Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
It is set for release on October 24 in the UK and November 2 in the US and will chronicle the 15-year period between the band’s formation and their iconic Live Aid performance at Wembley Stadium in 1985.
