No, this isn't a figment of your imagination, it's the real deal. USA Network has ordered a third season of its hit drama Mr. Robot, the network announced Tuesday. Season 3 will air next year.
Though not a ratings hit for USA, Mr. Robot is a critics' favorite, has become a cult series for fans and is now one of award season's heavy hitters, with six Emmy nominations and two Golden Globe wins, including the Best Drama prize.
"We couldn't be more proud of Mr. Robot, a series that has pushed boundaries, captured the cultural zeitgeist, and been honored as one of the best dramas on television," Chris McCumber, NBCUniversal Cable's entertainment president, said in a statement. "Midway through its second season, Mr. Robot continues to break new ground and open up new opportunities for the network. We can't wait to see where Sam Esmail and the entire brilliant Robot team take us next."
The series stars Rami Malek as a computer hacker looking to make a change in the system while also confronting his own mental disorders. Christian Slater, Carly Chaikin and Portia Doubleday also star.
Mr. Robot currently airs Wednesday nights at 10/9c on USA Network.
