Mr. Robot Season 4 Details
As said earlier, it’s going to be the fourth and final installment of the Mr Robot series. We should acknowledge that ever after wining the highest prize of the industry, i.e., getting an Oscar for the Best Lead Actor for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, he is still making his way to the set of the cable series.
Well, the focus now shifts from Freddie to Elliot Alderson, the tortured anarchist hacker-turned unwitting pawn for a global criminal cabal. Here is what Malek has said about the show during an interview with EW.
“I trust [creator Sam Esmail] implicitly, so if that is the way he thought he could close out this story line, then I’m with him.” He adds, “I can say this, it is a very impactful, emotional, and I think clearly well thought out way to end this story and this series. It’s remarkable. I’m in awe of the man and what he has done this season.”
Malek also talked about the atmosphere on the final set of the series. He has sort of become fond of co-actors. Malek said that ending of the series is going to be pretty wild. So, viewers can expect something very wild. According to him, he mouth was agape when he heard the ending from Esmail. So, we could expect a very climatic ending.
