Mr. Robot renewed

The USA Network has renewed Mr. Robot on the same day it made its series premiere on television.

The show's pilot episode received positive reviews after it was made available online and on video-on-demand services last month.

USA Network president Chris McCumber said: "We knew from the moment we read Sam Esmail's provocative script, and witnessed the brilliant performances of Rami Malek and Christian Slater, that Mr Robot is a stand-out series that is unlike anything currently on television. The overwhelmingly positive fan reactions to the pilot and the broad sampling of it, reaffirms our confidence in the series, and we're excited to see where this timely drama will take us for season two."

It is a huge turn around for Christian Slater who stars on the show as his previous shows My Own Worst Enemy, The Forgotten, Breaking In and Mond Games were all canceled early on.
