USA is amping up Mr. Robot‘s second season.
As announced Thursday, the network has expanded its order for the series, bumping the award-winning drama’s upcoming season from 10 episodes to 12. The show will also get a longer premiere, including two back-to-back episodes plus a live after show, Hacking Robot, that’s billed as a behind-the-scenes look.
Mr. Robot stars Rami Malek as Elliot Alderson, a cyber-security engineer sucked into underground hacking group fsociety by its enigmatic leader (Christian Slater). Season 2 will pick up one month after the organization’s 5/9 hack on the international Evil Corp., exploring the aftermath of the attack and the illusion of control.
As previously announced, series creator Sam Esmail will direct all episodes. Mr. Robot returns July 13 at 10 p.m. ET on USA.
