"Mr. Robot" Season 1 ended perfectly - with a cliffhanger designed to make fans anticipate "Mr. Robot" Season 2, that is. Here is a roundup of the rumored plot lines, cast, and release date of "Mr. Robot" Season 2. 

Season 1 of "Mr. Robot" ended with the viewers' jaws wide open. They suddenly learned that Mr. Robot was in reality, Elliot's (Rami Malek) father. Instead, Mr. Robot and Elliot is one and the same. From this, everyone is anticipating what Season 2 now holds. 

The show, even with just a season, already wowed many. It would not have been one of the most nominated TV series at the Golden Globes awards otherwise. The show, in fact, went on and won the Golden Globe awards for best drama. Christian Slater also won for the best-supporting actor category. Rami Malek, on the other hand, won the Best Actor in a Drama Series at the 2016 Critics Choice Awards. He bested equally deserving actors, Hugh Dancy, Clive Owen, Liev Schreiber, Justin Theroux, and Aden Young.

Having done so well for its first season, the second season of "Mr. Robot" will have even more exciting plot twists. The show runner, Sam Esmail said so himself, hinting at some story lines. According to Vulture, he appeared at the Television Critics Association's press tour in Pasadena and shared that, "there will be a lot more backstory that will be shown, the timeline will get a little clearer - not 100 percent clear, because where's the fun in that? But a little clearer. He added, "It really is about Elliott trying to reconcile what this means in seeing Mr. Robot. The series is filling in the blanks of the past and the present of this character ... It's about a guy who becomes aware of this delusion he's been having."

An earlier report by the Hollywood Reporter, where Esmail also sat for an interview, the next season will be so much darker. According to Esmail, fans can compare the world of Elliot to "Rome burning." "What would happen to society... if the consumer-debt industry were to be erased? To me, that canvas was something I was interested in exploring, so, for me, that's what that last scene sets up. We're about to watch Rome burn. That's the world Elliot's going to enter next season," he detailed. 

Crossmap anticipates Season 2 to be released in June 2016. The first season premiered back in June 2015, so it is not a far-fetched guess.
