“Mr. Robot” Season 2 spoilers? They are all in lead star Rami Malek’s cellphone!
Malek said he is worried that hackers might pry on his phone calls and spill spoilers for season 2. In an interview with The Wrap, he was asked if playing a hacker role might also led him to being paranoid that a real life hacker might spread “Mr. Robot” season 2 spoilers.

Meanwhile, Grace Gummer of “American Horror Story” will join the cast for “Mr. Robot” season 2. She will play as a FBI agent Dominique “Dom” DiPierro who will be assigned to investigate on the Evil Corp hack.

The creator added that season 2 will focus more Elliot Alderson’s past which led to his ongoing struggles.
“The whole show’s been about Elliot’s emotional journey and I really wanted to focus on that and make it less about the plot,” Sam Esmail said. “That’s the struggle that is going to take over in season two. . . . There will be a lot more backstory that will be shown, and the timeline will get a little clearer. Not a hundred percent clearer, but a little clearer.”
