Rami Malek on Mr. Robot ending: "It's nice to walk away on a high note"
Malek told Jimmy Kimmel that he was expecting his USA series to last four to five seasons, so the recent announcement that the show was ending after Season 4 came as no surprise. Malek also said he got his Freddie Mercury Bohemian Rhapsody role because producers saw him on Mr. Robot.

Christian Slater recently hinted that Season 4 would be the last for Sam Esmail's USA hacker drama that stars Rami Malek. Now The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Mr. Robot will end in 2019 with an episode order that has been expanded to 12 episodes, with production beginning this fall. When Season 4 was originally announced in December 2017, it was given an eight-episode order. "Since day one, I’ve been building toward one conclusion — and in breaking the next season of Mr. Robot, I have decided that conclusion is finally here," Esmail, who has also been busy working with Julia Roberts on Amazon's Homecoming, said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "Everyone on the creative team, including the amazing people at USA and UCP, didn't want to say goodbye, but we ultimately have too much respect for Elliot's journey to extend past its inevitable ending. Therefore, season four will serve as the final chapter of the Mr. Robot story. To fans of the show: thank you for the past three years, and I can't wait to share this exciting final season with you."

The acclaimed first season had a streamlined story, which was ditched for more labyrinthine plot in Season 2. “Season three finds both Elliot and Mr. Robot more focused in their efforts to get back to the way things used to be,” says Alan Sepinwall. He adds: “Based on the new season’s first four episodes, both character and creator have mixed success in their revised missions.”
