MANILA, Philippines – Hit TV series Mr Robot will end after its 4th season in 2019, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday, August 30.
The show, by USA Network, will debut in 2019 with a cycle of 12 episodes, up from the previously-announced 8.
In a statement to Hollywood Reporter, show creator Sam Esmail said: "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."

"Therefore, season 4 will serve as the final chapter of the Mr Robot story. To fans of the show: thank you for the past 3 years, and I can't wait to share this exciting final season with you," he said.
Esmail had never made a long-term plan for the series, telling The Hollywood Reporter back then that he'd always seen it as a series that would run for 4 or 5 seasons.
