The first teaser trailer for 'Mr. Robot' final season was out on June 13, 2019. The clip shows Elliot being forced by an unseen character to answer a very tough question about the destruction that he has been associated with throughout the series. The series also released a season four promo on July 17, 2019.
The second trailer of the last season of 'Mr. Robot' was released on August 27 and it shows Elliot and his alter ego Mr. Robot target the top 1% of people in terms of power, influence and wealth. This will put them in the path of dangerous entities such as Whiterose (BD Wong) and the Dark Army, Phillip Price (Michael Cristofer) and the entirety of E Corp.
The trailer also features a different side of Mr. Robot. So far, we have only seen Mr. Robot putting his foot down and undauntingly so, but in the trailer, we hear him tell Eliott, "If you go down this path, it'll never end. It will always be something else. Another symbol to destroy, more people to save. This is an endless war. What you're about to do is crossing a line." And this time, it looks like Eliott would be the one to throw caution to the wind.
Season 3 recap
'Mr. Robot' follows Elliot, a young programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and a vindictive hacker by night. Elliot finds himself at a crossroads when the mysterious leader of an underground hacker group recruits him to destroy the firm he is paid to protect. He has an ailment where he is suffering from a vague condition which is similar to schizophrenia which he ineffectively tries to keep under control by taking drugs regularly.
The entry of a strange spirited young woman named Darlene played by Carly Chaikin and a secretive middle-aged man who calls himself 'Mr. Robot' and claims to lead the secretive underground hacking group called the F-society, changes things for Elliot. He offers Elliot a chance to take his vindictiveness to the next level and assist him in taking down a rival company by the name E-corp, a corrupt multinational financial company that Elliot is an employee of and likes to call it Evil corp. This is when Elliot finds himself in a sticky situation. 'Mr. Robot' played by Christian Slater has his agendas for taking down E-corp.
At this point, the story goes to reveal an ally, an even more mysterious, reticent and highly speculative shadowy hacking group known as the Dark Army. Elliot's childhood buddy and sole friend, Angela who is played by Portia Doubleday is against the E-corp and blames them for the death of their parents. She also tries to take it down legally and by trying to retrieve evidence of their corrupt activities from the inside.
Another new add on to the characters marks the entry of Tyrell Wellick, an unhinged psychopathic E-corp conspicuous consumer originally hailing from Scandanavia played by Martin Wallstrom has a very weird relationship with his ambitious and dominating wife Joanna played by Stephanie Corneliussen. The series goes on with many curve balls and twists to finally highlight that Mr. Robot's plan is finally coming into play with a catastrophic inadvertent result.
