Further information: List of Mr. Robot episodes

The series follows Elliot Alderson, a young man living in New York City, who works at the cybersecurity company Allsafe as a cybersecurity engineer. Constantly struggling with social anxiety, dissociative identity disorder, clinical depression and drug abuse, Elliot's thought process seems heavily influenced by paranoia and delusion.[9] He connects to people by hacking them, which often leads him to act as a cyber-vigilante. He is recruited by a mysterious insurrectionary anarchist known as Mr. Robot and joins his team of hacktivists known as fsociety.

Conception and development[edit]

Series stars Christian Slater(left) and Rami Malek(right) speaking as part of the Mr. Robotpanel during the 2015 PaleyFest. Slater has also served as a producer since the first season, while Malek began producing in season 3.

Sam Esmail, the show's creator and showrunner, is the credited writer on the vast majority of the episodes.[40] In an interview, Sam Esmail shared that he is fascinated by hacker culture and wanted to make a film about it for around 15 years.[41] In the production, Esmail consulted experts to give a realistic picture of hacking activities.[42] Another inspiration for Esmail, who is of Egyptian descent, was the Arab Spring, where young people who were angry at society used social media to bring about a change.[43][44] He has said that Elliot is a "thinly-veiled version" of himself.[45]

Esmail had originally intended Mr. Robot to be a feature film, with the end of the first act being someone finding out that he had a mental disorder while enacting a greater scheme.[46] However, midway through writing the first act, he found that the script had expanded considerably, and that it had become better-suited for a television show.[47] He removed 20 of around 89 pages of the script then written, and used it as the pilot for the series,[48] and what was to have been the end of the first act became the finale of the first season.[46] Esmail took the script to film and television production company Anonymous Content to see if it could be developed into a television series, which was then picked up by USA Network. USA gave a pilot order to Mr. Robot in July 2014.[49] After an exhaustive search to cast the lead role, it was announced in September 2014 that Rami Malek had been cast as Elliot;[50] the remainder of the roles in the pilot were cast later in September and October.[51][52]

USA picked it up to series with a 10-episode order in December 2014.[53] Production began in New York on April 13, 2015.[54] The pilot premiered on multiple online and video on demand services on May 27, 2015,[55] and the series was renewed for a second season before the first season premiered on USA on June 24, 2015.[56] In December 2015, it was announced that Esmail would direct all episodes in the second season.[57] In June 2016, it was announced that the second season's episode order was increased from 10 to 12 episodes.[58] The 12-episode second season premiered on July 13, 2016.[58] On August 16, 2016, USA renewed Mr. Robot for a third season to air in 2017.[59][60] The third season debuted in October 2017 and consisted of 10 episodes. All episodes were directed by Esmail, just as in the second season.[29][61] On December 13, 2017, USA renewed Mr. Robot for a fourth season.[62] In August 2018, it was confirmed that the fourth season would be the final season.[63]

Originally, the show planned to dress Elliot in a worn sweatshirt and colorful backpack; however, Malek suggested a black backpack and wore his own B:Scott black hoodie to set.[64] The outfit became the signature look for the character, and the costume designer ordered 20 more of them, despite the item having been discontinued years earlier.[64] To portray the unusual, often confused worldview of lead character Elliot Alderson, Franklin Peterson, who edited three Mr. Robot episodes in the first season and six in the second season, used creative editing styles that included jump cuts, varied lengths of takes and shuffling scenes around within an episode and sometimes even between episodes. Esmail encouraged the experimentation as Peterson and his team explored the personality of each character in the editing suite, finding creative ways to tell their stories and maintain their humanity.[65]

Visual effects[edit]

FuseFX was hired to provide the visual effects for episode "eps3.4_runtime-error.r00" of season 3, in which they took 40 shots and stitched them together to appear as one seamless shot for the entire episode.[66][67]

Technical accuracy[edit]

Mr. Robot has been widely praised for its technical accuracy by numerous cybersecurity firms and services such as Avast,[68]Panda Security,[69]Avira,[70]Kaspersky,[71]ProtonMail,[72] and bloggers[73][74][75][76] who analyzed and dissected the technical aspects of the show after episodes containing hacking scenes. Aside from the pilot episode, Esmail hired Kor Adana (former network security analyst and forensics manager for Toyota Motor Sales), Michael Bazzell (security consultant and former FBI Cyber Crimes Task Force agent and investigator) and James Plouffe (lead solutions architect at MobileIron) as his advisors to oversee the technical accuracy of the show. By the second season, Adana assembled a team of hackers and cybersecurity experts including Jeff Moss (founder and director of Black Hat and DEF CON computer security conferences),[77] Marc Rogers (principal security researcher for Cloudflare and head of security for DEF CON),[78] Ryan Kazanciyan (chief security architect for Tanium) and Andre McGregor (director of security for Tanium and former FBI Cyber Special agent) to assist him with the authenticity of the hacks and the technology being used.[79] Hacking scenes were performed by members of the technical team in real life, recorded and rebuilt using Flash animation. Animation process is carried out by animator Adam Brustein under the direct supervision of Adana himself.[80][81]Kali Linux and its tools were used in multiple episodes.[82][83][84]

The show has also attempted to accurately represent Elliot's mental health issues. In an interview with Terry Gross for the radio show Fresh Air, Malek recounted reaching out to a psychologist to learn about schizophrenia, dissociative identity disorder, and social anxiety. When in meetings with Esmail, Malek's knowledge on the topics led Esmail to bring the psychologist on as a consultant for the show.[85]


Sam Esmail has acknowledged several major influences on the show, such as American Psycho, Taxi Driver, A Clockwork Orange,[86] and The Matrix.[87] In particular, Esmail credited Fight Club as the inspiration for a main character who has dissociative identity disorder creating a new manifestation of his deceased father in the form of a hacker,[87][88][89] as well as for the anti-consumerist, anti-establishment, and anti-capitalist spirit of its characters.[90] Commentators have also noted the parallel in its plot on the erasing of consumer debt records to the film.[91][92] Even so, Lauren Lawson for GQ remarked, "Mr. Robot elevates the Fight Club formula: the show's mindfuckery lubes us up to think about society (Elliot's and ours) in a discerning way, but it's not the main event. You can see Fight Club once and pretty much get the picture, but it will take years of scholarly binge-watching to answer the questions Mr. Robot raises."[93] In an interview, Esmail explains how playing the song that David Fincher used to underscore the climax of Fight Club ("Where Is My Mind?") when Elliot initiates the hack in episode nine is intended as a message to the audience that he is aware of the inspiration they took from the film.[94] The narration by the protagonist was influenced by Taxi Driver,[95] and other influences mentioned included Risky Business for its music score, Blade Runner for the character development, and the television series Breaking Bad for the story arc.[86]

Filming locations[edit]

The series was filmed in New York. Filming locations include Silvercup Studios and Coney Island, which serves as the exterior of the base of operations for the hacking group fsociety.[96] As the production crew was unable to shut down Times Square for filming, the scenes at Times Square in the first-season finale were shot late at night just before July 4 holiday weekend to catch the area at its emptiest while other shots were done on sets.[97] Production on the second season began on March 7, 2016, resuming filming in New York City.[38]


In June 2016, USA Network announced Hacking Robot, a live aftershow hosted by Andy Greenwald to air during the second season.[98]Hacking Robot debuted after the second-season premiere and aired again following the tenth episode. In addition, a weekly web-only aftershow titled Mr. Robot Digital After Show premiered on The Verge and USA Network's websites after the third episode, and continued through the third season.[99]


Critical response[edit]

Season 1[edit]

The first season of Mr. Robot received critical acclaim. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a rating of 98%, based on 60 reviews, with an average rating of 8.36/10. The site's consensus reads, "Mr. Robot is a suspenseful cyber-thriller with timely stories and an intriguing, provocative premise."[100] It set a record on Rotten Tomatoes as the only show to earn perfect episode scores for an entire season since the site began tracking television episodes.[101] On Metacritic, the first season scored 79 out of 100, based on 24 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[102]

Merrill Barr of Forbes gave it a very positive review, writing, "Mr. Robot has one of the best kick-offs to any series in a while" and that it "could be the series that finally, after years of ignorance, puts a deserving network among the likes of HBO, AMC and FX in terms of acclaim."[103]

In The New York Times, Alessandra Stanley noted that "Occupy Wall Street, the protest movement that erupted in 2011, didn't do much to curb the financial industry. It didn't die out, though. It went Hollywood", before finding Mr. Robot to be, "an intriguing new series ... a cyber-age thriller infused with a dark, almost nihilistic pessimism about the Internet, capitalism and income inequality. And that makes it kind of fun".[104] The UK The Daily Telegraph reviewer Michael Hogan gave the show five stars, finding it to be "The Matrix meets Fight Club meets Robin Hood", noting that, "bafflingly, it took months for a UK broadcaster to snap up the rights". Although Hogan found too much attention was devoted to Elliot's social anxiety, he eventually decided that "this alienated anti-hero was a brilliant, boldly complex character." Overall, Hogan concluded that the show deserved to find an audience in the UK.[105]

Mr. Robot made several critics' list for the best TV shows of 2015. Three critics, Jeff Jensen of Entertainment Weekly, Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone, and the staff of TV Guide, named it the best show of the year. The series was also placed second on the list from three other critics, and was named among the best of the year from four other critics.[106]

Season 2[edit]

The second season also received critical acclaim. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a score of 89%, based on 39 reviews, with an average rating of 7.8/10. The site's consensus reads: "Unique storytelling, a darker tone, and challenging opportunities for its tight cast push Mr. Robot even further into uncharted television territory."[107] On Metacritic, it has a score of 81 out of 100, based on 28 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[108]

Sonia Saraiya of Variety praised Rami Malek's performance and wrote, "it's Malek's soulful eyes and silent pathos that give Mr. Robot its unexpected warmth, as the viewer is lured into Elliot's chaos and confusion.[109] Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter lauded Sam Esmail's direction, writing "Esmail's camerawork—characters tucked into corners of the frame, among other nontraditional compositions—continues to give the sense of disorientation and never feels tired" and "there are some flourishes in the first two hours that are brilliantly conceived and [...] contribute to what is one of the most visually remarkable hours on television."[110]

Season 3[edit]

The third season also received critical acclaim. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a score of 92%, based on 20 reviews, with an average rating of 8.26/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Mr. Robot's striking visuals and bold narrative fuel its seductive blend of reality and fantasy."[111] On Metacritic, it has a score of 82 out of 100, based on 9 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[112]

Based on six episodes for review, Darren Franich of Entertainment Weekly gave it an "A" grade, calling it a "noir masterpiece", and overall, wrote that "Season 3 of Mr. Robot is a masterpiece, ballasting the global ambitions of season 2 while sharpening back to the meticulous build of season 1."[113]

Season 4[edit]

As with previous seasons, the fourth and final season has been met with near-universal acclaim. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a score of 97% with an average rating of 8.92/10, based on 19 reviews. The site's critical consensus reads, "Mr. Robot returns with a thrilling final season that is sure to surprise and satisfy its audience."[114] On Metacritic, it has a score of 81 out of 100, based on 5 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[115]

The episode "407 Proxy Authentication Required" specifically gained exceptional acclaim by Decider, who called it "among the best individual TV episodes of 2019, and possibly one of the best of all time."[116]Variety listed it as the 22nd best show of the 2010s,[117] and Emily Todd VanDerWerff of Vox named it among "shows that help explain the decade".[118] Emma Garland of Vice described the show as defining the 2010s and post-Occupy world as one of vast inequality: "Even if you don't buy into its earnestness, you can't argue with its bittersweet irony."[119]

Mr. Robot: Every Episode In Season 2, Ranked (According To IMDb)

Mr. Robot is an absolute masterpiece by Sam Esmail. The show has got everything to hook the audience - thrill, romance, drama, mystery, a brilliant cast, and mind-bending storylines. The series is very uniquely presented and it stays honest to the creepy nature it's known for.

RELATED: Mr. Robot: The 10 Best Characters, Ranked

The USA Network original released its second season in 2016, which followed the events of an exhilarating season 1 finale that saw Elliot Alderson and the Fsociety pull off an (almost) impossible hack. With Elliot's mental state getting worse and worse, he looks to contain the monster inside him that is Mr. Robot. Without further ado, let's rank every episode from Mr. Robot's second outing, according to IMDb.

12 "" (8.3)

The first episode of season 2 sees Elliot alter his lifestyle, a bit. It's important to understand that he is trying to suppress Mr. Robot inside him and the only way he can do that is by adhering to code. This was another important thing revealed about Elliot's character - he's incredibly patient.

Obviously, Mr. Robot didn't like this one bit. Elliot wanted to know about Tyrell and he wasn't giving Mr. Robot control, until he revealed what exactly happened to Tyrell.

11 "" (8.4)

In the second episode of season 2, Darlene is trying everything to dismantle E Corp. She doesn't want them back on their feet. Angela is in a bad place, a really bad place and one can know that just by looking at her face. Poor old Gideon dies because of Elliot's actions. And Elliot will feel the guilt of this. Gideon was innocent of everything.

10 "Eps2.2init1.asec (8.4)

In the fourth episode of season 2, Elliot is done with hallucinations and blacking out. He just wants to put an end to Mr. Robot, for good... but it's not that easy, is it? After all, Mr. Robot is a part of Elliot.

RELATED: Mr. Robot: 10 Scenes Even Fans Didn't See Coming

A couple of tense scenes take place in this episode, one of them being between Darlene and Elliot. The brother and sister relationship is getting darker by the day.

9 "Eps2.1k3rnel-pan1c.ksd" (8.5)

The third episode is just as chaotic as the first couple of episodes. Romero is killed, quite mercilessly, and right now, no one knows who did that. Still, it puts Darlene and Elliot on their toes. A few more characters are introduced, quite seamlessly as well. Ray, who looks like a suspicious new friend of Elliot's and an FBI agent, Dominique Di Pierro.

8 "Eps2.9pyth0n-pt1.p7z" (8.6)

The penultimate episode of season 2 is devoid of all the action we witnessed in episode 10. It focuses more on storytelling and finally, Angela gets to know about Whiterose. It was a long time coming. And it was really a weird scene, shot in a dark room. Moreover, Dominique looked absolutely devastated after the shootout. This is an important step towards her finally realizing how deep she is in this chaotic game.

7 "Eps2.6succ3ss0r.p12" (8.7)

The eight episode of season 2 is all about Darlene slipping down towards the very bottom. This was being hinted at throughout the second season and it finally happened - she killed someone, namely, Susan Jacobs. Even though the build towards it was a bit of a letdown, one should understand how lost Darlene is without her genius brother, Elliot.

6 "Eps2.7init5.fve" (8.7)

In the ninth episode of season 2, everything the viewers wanted to know about Elliot's arrest is revealed. He ended up in jail for hacking Krista's boyfriend, which is actually hilarious when one thinks about it. He does get released from prison, though, and it's Darlene who greets him. She still isn't over killing Susan and now, Trenton and Mobley are missing.

5 "Eps2.3logic-b0mb.hc" (8.9)

The fifth episode of season 2 sees Elliot interact with the real world again. It's been way too long that he's been confined in his tight spaces. Although those parts were essential for character development, the viewers weren't getting what Mr. Robot is known for - chaos.

RELATED: Mr Robot: 5 Things That Could Actually Happen IRL (& 5 That Are Total Fiction)

Dominique is getting herself involved in dangerous territories, while Darlene is continuously going over her plans with Elliot.

4 "Eps2.9pyth0n-pt2.p7z" (9.0)

The season 2 finale tries to wrap up a couple of storylines and it also leaves the viewers hanging. First things first, Tyrell is not dead and finally, Elliot gets to know what Mr. Robot has been up to. Stage 2 of the Dark Army's plan is about to begin and Elliot is horrified to know it. He does everything he can to try and stop it. But he is met with a bullet.

3 "Eps2.4_m4ster-s1ave.aes" (9.1)

The sixth episode of season 2 is a '90s sitcom, quite literally. This episode reveals just how creative this series is, one just cannot expect anything. Elliot's brain is damaged and it wanders off everywhere. Ray absolutely destroys him but it looks like he blacked out and now, he is with his family in the '90s going on a picnic of some sort. The viewers get an insight into what's happening in Elliot's mind, which is so important to understand the character.

2 "Eps2.5_h4ndshake.sme" (9.3)

In the seventh episode of season 2, the series does what it's known for - first play with the viewer's mind and then, reveal something incredible out of the blue. Turns out, Elliot has been inside a prison cell and not a house.

And the revelation is almost perfect. Meanwhile, Mr. Robot and Elliot have a good moment and it's clearly a hint that both of them can work together.

The tenth episode of season 2 is absolutely wonderful. The tense surroundings and precarious situations are beautifully revealed. The best scene, by far, is the one when Joanna asks Elliot to find her husband. She is a master manipulator and even Elliot caves-in to her demands.

Furthermore, the disappearance of Mr. Robot makes Elliot suspicious. He thinks there's something up and he even asks the audience to look for clues. Dominique is involved in an intense shootout, which saw Darlene and Cisco's life endangered. This episode is nothing short of an absolute masterpiece.
