Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail has spoken about how the projected life-span for the series.
“Initially this was supposed to be a feature-length film and so I know where we’re going and the ending, so probably about four or five seasons,” he told Variety.
“I like to know where we’re going and where we’re heading. I think it’s tougher if it’s open ended, my brain doesn’t work like that but hats off to those who do.”
Next week the show is up for an Emmy as Outstanding Drama Series against some formidable competition including Game of Thrones, House of Cards and The Americans.
“I mean it’s beyond an (honour). Obviously we didn’t expect any of this a year ago. It’s humbling. It’s such a weird little show and we explore really dark things and the way it’s worked out is a shock, a welcome shock, but a shock nonetheless,” he said.
