Mr. Robot Gets Expanded Season 2, Bigger Premiere With Live After Show

Mr. Robot Season 2 After Show

Mr. Robot is receiving several upgrades ahead of its Season 2 premiere.

For starters, the Golden Globe-winning drama’s sophomore season has been expanded from 10 to 12 episodes, USA Network announced on Thursday. Along those lines, Season 2 will now open with back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, July 13 at 10/9c, presented with limited commercial breaks.

Following the supersized premiere at about 11:30 pm, USA Network will debut Hacking Robot, a live, hourlong after show that promises a “behind the scenes look at the breakout drama.” (I know, I know — I would have gone with Do the Robot as well.)

As previously announced episodes of Mr. Robot Season 2 will be directed by series creator Sam Esmail.
