“Midway through its second season, Mr. Robot continues to break new ground and open up new opportunities for the network.”
Mr. Robot also has won two Golden Globes, including for best drama series, a Peabody Award; three Critics’ Choice Awards, a WGA Award for Best New Series and the TCA Award for Outstanding New Program.
