The upcoming fourth season of Mr. Robot will be its last

Rami Malek's time as Elliot Alderson on USA Network's Mr. Robot will soon be coming to an end as THR has reported that the upcoming fourth season of the series will be its last. Production on the final season will begin this winter in New York, and although Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail had toyed with the idea of a fifth season, he realized that the story would be coming to its natural end sooner than he thought.

When I first created the world of Mr. Robot, I thought it would be a niche television series with a small, cult following. 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.

Mr. Robot has never been overly impressive in the ratings department, but its critical success has kept the series afloat for the past few years. In a statement, USA Network president Chris McCumber said, "From the beginning, Mr. Robot proved to be a show unlike any other on television, capturing the zeitgeist of our modern times with a unique point of view and definitive vision. Working with Sam and the entire cast and crew has been nothing short of incredible — and we can’t wait to reveal the complete Mr. Robot story." UCP co-presidents Dawn Olmstead and George Cheeks added, "The story of Mr. Robot is completely original and exhilarating — striking a cultural chord at just the right time. As we begin production on the final chapter of this iconic series, we want to thank Sam for his unparalleled vision, the masterful crew and the passionate cast who breathe life into these rich characters. We’d also like to thank our partners at USA Network for embracing this revolutionary series." The fourth and final season of Mr. Robot will consist of 12-episodes and is expected to debut in 2019.
