"He made me shoot him, kept saying I wasn't real, it was almost as if he was a different person", is what we hear at the beginning of Mr. Robot first trailer for the upcoming third season. USA Network has just released the clip.

Executive producer and writer Sam Esmail will return to direct all 10 episodes of the series, which stars Rami Malek, Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin, Martin Wallstrom, Grace Gummer, Michael Cristofer and Stephanie Corneliussen. Bobby Cannavale, of Boardwalk Empire and Ant-Man, is also set to appear in the series as the new character Irving.

Mr.Robot follows Elliot Alderson (Malek), a cyber-security engineer who, along with hacker Mr. Robot (Slater) and hacker group fsociety, starts a revolution to change the world. Picking up immediately following the previous season's cliffhanger, Season 3 will explore each character’s motivations and the disintegration between Elliot and Mr. Robot.

Season 3 will premiere on Wednesday, October 11. The premiere date, trailer, and the first image of Bobby Cannavale’s new character were unmasked through a social media scavenger hunt orchestrated by the network. Then, the first-look photo of Cannavale’s Irving was released across the show’s social platforms. Followers were encouraged to closely watch the show’s Twitter handle in the coming hours for more news surrounding Season 3. An embedded code was hidden in the photo of Cannavale, which led to hidden clues of how to decrypt what was about to happen on Twitter. Over the course of one hour, the show began a tweet storm, revealing clues driving to a private URL where fans were able to watch the yet to be released Season 3 teaser trailer in its entirety and learn the October 11 premiere date.

We’re eager to share the next phase of Elliot’s journey with fans this fall.”

“Season 3 of Mr. Robot will engage viewers in a whole new way, with Sam and team continuing to find ways to surprise, challenge and delight the audience. And adding Bobby Cannavale and BD Wong to our cast makes one of the tightest acting ensembles even stronger,” said Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment in the same statement.
