USA's 'Mr. Robot' to End After 4 Seasons

USA has today announced that the upcoming fourth season of its original drama series Mr. Robot will be its last. Production on the final 12 episodes begins this winter for a premiere later in 2019.

The drama stars Rami Malek, Carly Chaikin, Portia Doubleday, Martin Wallström, Michael Cristofer, Grace Gummer, BD Wong, Bobby Cannavale and Christian Slater.

Sam Esmail created the drama. He executive produces with Steve Golin, Chad Hamilton, Joseph E. Iberti and Kyle Bradstreet. Malek and Slater serve as producers. Universal Cable Productions, Anonymous Content and Esmail Corp produce.

"When I first created the world of Mr. Robot, I thought it would be a niche television series with a small, cult following," said Esmail. "Over the past three years, it has become so much more, and I am continually humbled by the show's recognition and by the amazing cast and crew that work tirelessly to help bring my vision to life. Since day one, I've been building toward one conclusion - and in breaking the next season of Mr. Robot, I have decided that conclusion is finally here. Everyone on the creative team, including the amazing people at USA and UCP, didn't want to say goodbye, but we ultimately have too much respect for Elliot's journey to extend past its inevitable ending. Therefore, season four will serve as the final chapter of the Mr. Robot story. To fans of the show: thank you for the past three years, and I can't wait to share this exciting final season with you."
