The third season of the highly acclaimed drama starring Christian Slater as “Mr Robot”, the anarchist leading the group of hacktivists/cyber terrorists known as fsociety who seek to overthrow the conglomerate E Corp, and Rami Malek as Elliot, the troubled hacker at the centre of it all, is bursting onto Showmax on 12 October, with fresh episodes launching weekly within 24 hours of their broadcast in the US.

As you can see from the official Mr Robot Season 3 trailer, the cliffhanger at the end of Season 2 resolves itself in the form of Elliot waking up with no idea where he is. It looks like we’re in for another season of darkness, intrigue, danger and tension, and we can’t wait to see how fsociety will rally against their enemies, whether that’s the FBI or the Chinese hacker group the Dark Army.

Now’s the time to catch up on Seasons 1 and 2, packed to bursting with clever hidden messages, before Season 3 lands on Showmax on Thursday, 12 October.

Speaking of Rami Malek, have you seen the newly released pics of him as Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, who would have turned 71 yesterday, in the long-awaited biopic? Check the pics out – the resemblance is uncanny. He’s going to have to sing in the role, too, apparently. Luckily, while we wait for the release of the movie, we can get weekly doses of Malek in his Emmy-Award-winning role as Elliot in Mr Robot, Season 3, only on Showmax.
