On Thursday night at the biggest convention in the world, San Diego Comic-Con, a panel of actors appeared from the show that’s sure to become one of the biggest television phenomenons in the world, Mr. Robot. Christian Slater, Rami Malek, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, and newcomer Grace Gummer discussed Season 2, and what’s in store for Elliot and the crazy that’s inside and outside of his head.
Spoilers and more below.
The panel began with an fsociety video – “Now when we speak, the world listens, that’s why we’ve come here today, to the greatest Con in the world,” the masked hacker declared in the video, much to the delight of the packed ballroom. “We are fsociety, you are fsociety, and together, we can change the world!”
After that it was discussion time! Although the cast did not give up any super secrets, just talking about the development of these fascinating characters. Clearly Christian Slater seems the most fun, as Malek gushes about him, and Slater reveals his guilty pleasures – The Bachelorette and Pokemon Go.
Mr. Robot airs Wednesday nights at 10:00pm ET on USA Network.
