SDCC 2016: Mr. Robot’s cast on where Season 2 will take us

Few shows lately have made as big of a cultural impact as Mr. Robot. A story about a small group of hackers dissatisfied with modern society and their attempt to use their computer expertise to force a major societal upheaval resonates with a discontented milleniall generation in a way that no other show has.

Fresh off the announcement of their Emmy nominations (6 in total, including Best Drama and Best Actor for star Rami Malek), we spoke to cast members Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Carly Chaikin, Portia Doubleday, and season 2’s new addition, Grace Gummer, about the impact the series has had, the narrative of the strong women in the series, and where we can expect Mr. Robot to take us as season 2 continues.
