Democracy is coming to "Mr. Robot."
USA announced the premiere date for Season 3 of the hacker drama: October 11. The network also released the first teaser trailer, which flashes scenes of chaos in New York City as Leonard Cohen recites the lyrics to his song "Democracy."
The premiere picks up right after the events of the Season 2 finale, in which Elliot (Rami Malek) was shot. Season 3 "will explore each character's motivations and the disintegration between Elliot and Mr. Robot," according to USA's official synopsis.
The teaser doesn't reveal much, but shows glimpses of the military presiding over a locked-down city, men in Mr. Robot masks brandishing guns on the subway, Whiterose (B.D. Wong, now a series regular) gazing out of a limousine, Darlene (Carly Chaiken) sobbing, Angela (Portia Doubleday) seemingly wearing a mask herself, and new cast member Bobby Cannavale as used car salesman Irving.
