USA Orders 2 Extra Episodes of Mr. Robot For Season 2
After Mr. Robot's critically acclaimed first season, the show is getting a two episode upgrade for season 2, as it's recently been reported by HR that USA Network has put in an order for 12 episodes for the 2016 season.

Mr. Robot follows the mentally ill Elliot Alderson, a vigilante hacker and morphine addict with a day job in cyber security. He ends up joining up with a group of other hackers who attempt to pull of the greatest hack in history, which, if accomplished, would forgive essentially an entire nation of individuals' debt. The show won several awards for its first season, and was nominated for several more.

It's also been announced that Mr. Robot will be getting an after show as well, much like the Talking Dead or Talking Saul. It'll be called Hacking Robot, but the host has yet to be announced. Likewise, there's no news on whether the show will be a weekly thing, or whether it will be a special for the premiere and finale.

The creator of the series, Sam Esmail, will be directing all twelve episodes of season 2, which begins on July 13th with back-to-back episodes.
