Mr. Robot is a one-hour drama that follows a mysterious anarchist as he recruits a computer programmer (Rami Malek) with a social disorder, using his skills to connect to people by hacking them.

USA Network President, Chris McCumber is also feeling confident about the show’s success.

“We knew from the moment we read Sam Esmail’s provocative script, and witnessed the brilliant performances of Rami Malek and Christian Slater, that Mr. Robot is a stand-out series that is unlike anything currently on television. The overwhelmingly positive fan reactions to the pilot and the broad sampling of it, reaffirms our confidence in the series, and we’re excited to see where this timely drama will take us for season two.”

Mr. Robot premieres June 24 at 10pm on USA.
