The award-winning hacker thriller Mr Robot has been renewed for a third season.

Currently midway through its sophomore run, Universal has signalled its commitment to the show by greenlighting a third season for 2017.

Mr Robot tells the story of a cyber-security engineer (Rami Malek), who becomes involved in the underground hacker group fsociety, after being recruited by their leader (Christian Slater). Following the hackers’ devastating attack on the multi-national company Evil Corp in the first series, the second season explores the consequences of that attack as well as the illusion of control.

The show was the surprise winner at the Golden Globes, winning best drama, and has been nominated for six Emmys.
