?Mr. Robot? Season 2 Spoilers: Next Season To Tackle Apple vs FBI Issue

By on

Excited for Mr. Robot Season 2? This report will surely fire up your anticipation for it even more.

Here?s what you should watch out for in the next installment of ?Mr. Robot.? In a report of Christian Today, the second season appears to continue the ongoing rift between Fsociety and Evil Corp. But expect the storyline to be tweaked a bit as it will now include real-world issues that are timely and relevant.

The first issue that it will touch on is data encryption and privacy, related somewhat to the current situation of Apple and the San Bernardino shooting case.

So what will be happening on the return of the series?

The series creator Sam Esmail told Variety, as posted in the article of Christian Today, that the story will try to reflect on the issue of Apple CEO Tim Cook, who is currently standing off against the FBI. It should be noted that the FBI is requesting that the giant electronic company breach its security features on its product, the iPhone to give them sensitive information that can help with the case.

Obtaining information from the iPhone used by the shooter in the San Bernardino shooting spree might give the FBI possible leads in hunting down other alleged terrorists or co-perpetrators. However, Apple refused to do so, explaining that these may raise concerns to their clients.

According to Esmail, as stated in the article, “It’s not something that I think people really understand the nuances of, but it’s going to be interesting public discourse about it, because it really brings up the idea of the rights to privacy and do we have them, do we not?”

The showrunner further revealed that they even hired coding experts and FBI members to consult with when they wrote the script of season 2. He was also quick to say that the storyline has been planned long before the issue between Apple and the FBI took place.

Expect that Grace Gummer will also be back in the forthcoming season. According to reports, she will be involved in the crime committed by Elliot in season 1. Elliot appears to be suffering from the consequences of his actions in the last installment.
