"When I first created the world of Mr. Robot, I thought it would be a niche television series with a small, cult following," Esmail said in a statement Wednesday. "Over the past three years, it has become so much more, and I am continually humbled by the show's recognition and by the amazing cast and crew that work tirelessly to help bring my vision to life."

Esmail elaborated further. He explained why he aims to conclude Mr. Robot after Season 4, saying: "Since day one, I've been building toward one conclusion—and in breaking the next season of Mr. Robot, I have decided that conclusion is finally here. Everyone on the creative team, including the amazing people at USA and UCP, didn't want to say goodbye, but we ultimately have too much respect for Elliot's journey to extend past its inevitable ending."

Esmail additionally took to Twitter on Wednesday to express his gratitude to the show's devoted fanbase. In doing so, he tweeted, "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."

Where Will The Show Pickup?

Mr. Robot follows a computer programmer named Elliot. He works as a cybersecurity engineer by day, but he's a hacker by night. He's asked to join an organization that consists of avid hackers who aim to take down corporate America. By working with the group, he would additionally be tasked with working against the company that supplied him with his salaried position.

According to the USA Network, Season 4 is slated to pick up right where Season 3 concluded. In a brief summary via USA's website, the cable network said the final season will explore "the pros and cons of Elliot hitting 'send' on the email that could reverse 5/9."
