Season 3 of Mr. Robot finished on series-low ratings with it’s season finale. Course how long could this show really go on? Even star Rami Malek and creator Sam Esmail have agreed the show only could last four or five seasons. And while Esmail toyed with the idea of plotting a fifth season, it was confirmed today that the rumor of the fourth season being the final season of the show is in fact true.
The season will be getting an extended 12-episode order, but as a result the show won’t begin production until the winter and won’t air until sometime well into 2019. This partially has to do with the fourth season writing schedule needing to be split in two to accommodate Esmail’s work on the Julia Roberts limited series Homecoming at Amazon. With Malek now getting more into films with the upcoming Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, it seems Mr. Robot coming to end feels natural for everyone involved. Stay tuned!
