Tv Season Info

Season 4 of the drama series picks up where it left off the previous season, with Price (Michael Cristofer) trying to talk Angela (Portia Doubleday) out of seeking revenge against Whiterose (BD Wong). Things take a turn for the worst when she is killed by Dark Army agents and Whiterose warns Elliot (Rami Malek) that he won't live past December. Elliot and Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) try to strike back against the Dark Army, but are caught in a trap. As the season progresses, Darlene (Carly Chaikin) joins Elliot in his fight against Whiterose, while Price reveals who is really behind the Dark Army and provides Elliot with the right information that will tip the scales to his favor.

Critic Reviews for Mr. Robot Season 4

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (8)

Season four, thankfully, seems like it's finally rewarding my faith in the show's long game.

Nov 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite its regular references to classic paranoid thrillers, it's not nearly as pessimistic as we might've thought based on Malek's hard-boiled and spiritually exhausted narration.

Oct 10, 2019 | Full Review…

[Sam] Esmail is one of the few series creators to expertly utilize classic analog cinematic techniques to make the conceptual oppression of surveillance state palpable.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

To be a successful final season, Mr. Robot not only needs to make us believe that Elliot is capable of pulling off the impossible, but that he cares with a deep burning sense of burden and responsibility. Mission accomplished so far.

Oct 7, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Sam Esmail's creation doesn't have the same level of hype it captured during its first season, but it's still willing to take chances and occasionally makes for must-watch television.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Mr. Robot returned strong with a premiere that pulled no punches.

Nov 4, 2019 | Rating: 8.4/10 | Full Review…

Mr. Robot is back and better than ever! With plenty of shocking moments and killer twists and turns, the signs are all pointing to the show's final season delivering the answers we've all been waiting for in an exciting and satisfying way.

Mr. Robot returns vibrant and addictive with plenty of memorable moments. [Full Review in Spanish]

Oct 21, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Whoever wins the David vs. Goliath battle, one thing is for certain about the final season of Mr. Robot: It's going to be a bloody Christmas.

Oct 8, 2019 | Full Review…

Rami Malek and Christian Slater are at the top of their game here and if the second half of this season is as good as the first five episodes, fans are going to be very pleased with how this show comes to a close.

Oct 8, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Though the final season announces itself with one successive bummer after another, it creates a level of anticipation that is incredibly hard to deny.

Long story short, I couldn't look away.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Robot: Season 4

  • Feb 20, 2021
    Jesus. This was one of the greatest seasons of television of all time. Rami Malek is just a superstar in this, and Christian Slater has some of his best performances in this season. This decided to focus more on the mind of Elliot, and that was probably the best decision ever made by Esmail. Episode 407 is one of the most heart-breaking and greatest explorations of a broken mind while being one of the best episode in television of all time, being on par with Ozymandias from Breaking Bad, hell, even the season is on par with Breaking Bad. The finale was satisfying, it shared so many reveals that gives me a new look on the show as a whole. Mr Robot is the story of the broken mind of Elliot Alderson, and this season shows it. My Rating - 9.5/10.

    Total waste of time after season 1.

    Mr. Robot for the win! Great show. Great overall plot. Great, great final season! It's deep and you have to pay attention, but it's worth it.
  • Jan 07, 2021
    Mr. Robot is one of the best TV series I've ever seen. I consider it to be on par with the likes of Breaking Bad. It blew my goddamn mind. It's original, unique, and unpredictable. There isn't any other show like this. The story is excellent and you're always wondering what will happen next. I cared about pretty much all the characters. Solid performances from the actors across the board, especially from Rami Malek. Mr. Robot starts on a high note, continues on a high note, and ends on a high note. The quality and the consistency never falter at all. I fucking love it. Go watch it right now.

    This has some of the best television I've seen in my life, thrilling, touching and most importantly engaging. Probably my favorite season of the show. My grade: A+
  • Jan 02, 2021
    This is not a story that holds up to scrutiny when you look at the big picture. I always felt this show was about loneliness and learning how to connect with people. I thought it was about the introverted mind, I thought the Mr. Robot character was meant to be a metaphor for fighting your inner demons. Instead it ended up being about mental illness in a literal sense. And for whatever reason one split personality wasn't enough, it had to be 5 different ones, and one or two of them had to be some sort of superhero hellbent on saving the world to make Elliot Prime happy. I feel like it's rather tasteless to use mental illness as such a story-telling gimmick. Shyamalan did this with Split and Glass and I hated those films. Worse yet, it's a twist that comes out of nowhere, completely undoes the character development of Elliot, and betrays the themes of the show. All in service of a plot twist to 'shock' people. So it's a gimmick used to multiple effects. That's all the whole story was in my eyes, just twist after twist and gimmick after gimmick. Much of the final season felt like I was watching a 90's music video. There's even cheesy rom-com music in a lot of the episodes, including the airport one. The show always had a decent soundtrack but then it suddenly got really cheesy and cliche with the final season. The music became overbearing just as the gimmicks did. The story of Mr. Robot simply amounted to a rip-off of many other films that did a far better job. Fsociety rips off V for Vendetta, which told a much better story. Even Hugo Weaving's anti-dystopian speeches were more powerful and memorable in that film. The alter ego concept was a ripoff of Fight Club. It even had the Pixies song and the entire plot of season 3 was just a ripoff of the ending of Fight Club with all the buildings collapsing. Tyrell Wellick's plot was just a ripoff of American Psycho. Once Esmail finished ripping off that movie, he had no clue what else to do with Tyrell so he just killed off his wife and eventually killed him off too. The whole concept of a loner and computer nerd fighting to save the world with the help of a group of outcasts was done far better in The Matrix. Forgive the rant, I found the show entertaining for a while, but when I finished it and really stopped to think about the whole journey, I realized just how utterly unoriginal and pointless it all was. It didn't do anything new with any of the concepts it was stealing. Even the tone and style of season 4 was entirely ripped from the Fargo TV series, right down to the editing and filming style. It even has the gall to mock Hackers yet fails to have enough self-awareness to see just how utterly stupid its own plot was. There's just so much that's wrong with this show. None of the characters really had any motivations or solid character arc. Tyrell was wasted, Joanna was wasted, Angela was wasted, Romero was wasted, Trenton was wasted, Mobley was wasted, Philip was wasted, Shayla was wasted, Dom was wasted, Irving was wasted, Leon was wasted, Giddeon was wasted, Vera was overused if anything, Whiterose was wasted. When Esmail ran out of ideas on what to do with any of his characters, he'd simply and lazily resort to killing every single one of them off. It was insulting. They all died to push Elliot's story along, and yet Elliot's character development was rendered null and void with the final twist. And for a protagonist, Elliot didn't seem to have much agency in his own story, often taking a backseat to other characters. Everyone was more or less a glorified plot device, including Elliot. Just bad character writing all around. Tyrell disappeared for 12 episodes after the first season, only to have a pathetic cliffhanger for season 2 that creates even more questions and more forced mystery. It's only 3 episodes into season 3 before we FINALLY learn what happened with Tyrell and Elliot, and even then it just leads to more questions. 4 seasons go by and we still don't know what happened at the end of the first season? That's ridiculous. The plot likes to chase its own tail and not go anywhere, much like LOST. Don't get me started on the artsy crap. Tyrell sees a blue light before he dies, and that's supposed to be some clever metaphor for the Blue Screen of Death in computers. Pffft. He wasted all of those characters and all of those actors. No one really had any understandable motivation, no one had much of a character arc or a point in the story whatsoever. The story didn't really go anywhere. Esmail's idea of 'saving the world' was utterly childish and preposterous. It just amounted to stealing from the rich and giving to everyone. And then on top of all of this mess, Esmail had the gall to make some bullsh_t 'open to interpretation' artsy fartsy ending. Come on, man! This isn't art. It's far from it. This is unoriginal television with very conventional thrills and poorly used plot gimmicks, with NOTHING to say about anything, and no themes that are properly explored. Don't pretend it's anything more than that. Why the series finale is so highly praised is completely beyond me. In the end it was simply misery porn with characters that are never developed but are rather killed off instead as Esmail had no clue whatsoever what to do with them. Esmail was a fine director, but a horrible writer. Season 1: 6/10 Season 2: 6/10 Season 3: 7/10 Season 4: 3/10 Summary: Unoriginal, pointless and poorly written story

    This show is so complicated but in a good way. Many good shows fail on closure but this was perfect.
  • Nov 30, 2020
    I've rarely seen a show so brilliantly tie all the loose ends and provide such a nail-biting epic finale. The scenario, cinematography and acting are simply amazing. Definitely worth a (re)watch!
  • Nov 18, 2020
    A great season literally
  • Nov 17, 2020
    This season was a masterpiece. Finally, an ending to a series that boosts the storyline overall and that doesn't take away from the experiences that it created. Loved every second of it.
