It takes a lot to stand out in the era of Peak TV, and no one series can resist the siren song of shocking twists. Some lay groundwork more carefully than others, so which major swerves were audiences miles ahead of? From LOST to Star Trek: Discovery, we’ve sleuthed out seventeen that savvy viewers put together long before showrunners intended.
There’s good news and bad for fans of USA’s Mr. Robot, as – while Season 3 has come to an end – the series has formally been renewed for Season 4. Creator Sam Esmail has previously spoken to the series lasting four or five seasons, and now suggests that the remaining two installments may be a little … well, compressed.
Elliot wasn’t in too good of shape when last we left Mr. Robot, but Season 3 already has the antisocial super-hacker up and running. See for yourself in a first clip, as an attempt to hack the Dark Army gets very personal, very quickly.
SNL burst out of the gate for Season 42 over the weekend, having spent a summer in transition with headline after headline passing them by. Leslie Jones in particular had something to say about the hack she suffered in August, recruiting Mr. Robot himself to track down the culprit in a new sketch.
The 2016 Emmy Awards have already given some much deserved accolades and a few head-scratchers, but at least a few saw this one coming. After many years under the radar, Rami Malek has finally hacked his way into taking home the statue for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama.
The fine folk at Honest Trailers rarely get into the TV game (even less often double-dipping), but suffice to say, certain series might take years to make the rotation. No longer, as all the major Emmy 2016 contenders, from The Americans to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt get their own mini trailer parodies!
That time of year is upon us again, as this coming Thursday, July 14 sees the announcement of the 2016 Emmy Awards nominations, in a field that seems tougher by each year. Favorites like Game of Thrones hit new levels of spectacle this year, while newcomers like UnREAL and Mr. Robot could split the nominations wide open.
