Los Angeles — The hacktivist thriller Mr. Robot is coming to an end.
USA Network said on Wednesday the drama series starring Emmy Award-winner Rami Malek will air its fourth and final season in 2019.
In a statement, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail says he decided that it was time to bring the story to a close next season.
Mr. Robot will conclude the way he'd envisioned it since it began, Esmail says.
Excited to show you guys the final chapter in Elliot's journey. It's going to be sad to say goodbye to Mr. Robot, but it'll be sadder to say goodbye to all the fans. Thanks for hanging with us throughout the years and cannot wait to share the conclusion with all of you.— Sam Esmail (@samesmail) August 29, 2018
Malek plays Elliot, a troubled cyber-security engineer and hacker who's drawn into a revolutionary movement.
Christian Slater also stars in the Peabody Award-winning drama.
An air date for the final season of Mr. Robot was not announced.
