M-Net Edge has confirmed that it will be adding the Mr. Robot after show: Hacking Robot to its schedule. Hacking Robot will give fans an avenue to channel their passion for the Golden Globe® Award winning drama.
The after show has two on-air episodes: Hacking Robot episode 1 will be scheduled after the Thursday, 21 July prime time broadcast at 23:00 while episode 2 will be broadcast after the season 2 finale.
This means that Californication Season 5, episode 11 and 12, will fall away and will resume on Wednesday 27 July at 22:00.
Mr. Robot kicked off its second season express from the US on M-Net Edge on Friday, 15 July at 03:00. Fans who missed the express airing can catch-up with the premiere on Thursday 21 July at 21:00.
The psychological drama has generated legions of devoted fans who are deciphering, decoding and discussing every aspect of the hit series.
Hacking Robot is the perfect platform for Mr. Robot fans to unpack the complex themes of the show, while also deconstructing what’s real and what’s fiction when it comes to the tech side of the series.
Hacking Robot will be hosted by Andy Greenwald (also the host of the Game Of Thrones after show, After the Thrones), and will also include a breakdown of the two hour season premiere of the second season, while answering questions from fans. Series creator Sam Esmail and members of the cast will join Greenwald for special, behind-the-scenes conversations about the show.
Mr. Robot follows Elliot Alderson, a cyber-security engineer and vigilante hacker who’s sucked into a conspiracy after being approached by the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group, who call themselves fsociety. Following the events of fsociety’s five/nine hack on multi-national company Evil Corp, the second season will explore the consequences of that attack, as well as the illusion of control.
The show stars Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallström, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer and Stephanie Corneliussen. New recurring guest stars include Craig Robinson , hip hop artist Joey Bada$$, Sandrine Holt, Michael Maize, Dorothi Fox and Luke Robertson.
