‘Mr Robot’ to return for second series in July – check out first trailer now

Show returns to Amazon Prime this summer

The first trailer for the new series of Mr Robot has been revealed.

The US series, which airs in the UK via Amazon Prime, returns in July. The first season debuted in 2015 and ended with a major plot twist. Rami Malek plays main character Elliot in the show and appears alongside Christian Slater as Mr Robot.

“Remember the night of the hack?” Slater asks as Mr Robot, while clever editing appears to show President Obama commenting on the show.

Here’s the official synopsis for Mr. Robot Season 2:

“ROBOT follows Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a young cyber-security engineer who becomes involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, after being recruited by their mysterious leader (Christian Slater). Following the events of fsociety’s hack on multi-national company Evil Corp, the second season will explore the consequences of that attack as well as the illusion of control.”

Mr Robot returns on July 13.
