Christian Bale asks ‘Are you still a friend?’ in a new teaser for the fourth and final season of techno-thriller Mr Robot and we have goosebumps.
After a long hiatus, the final season of the critically acclaimed drama will be released in October.
Thankfully patient fans have been treated to eerie teasers featuring the main protagonists.
In the latest clip a noticeably scruffier Mr Robot (Christian Bale) gazes into the distance as he leans against a beam for about 15 seconds before slowly strolling forward to address the camera.
He doesn’t speak yet his voice comes to us as narrator: ‘I know we don’t usually do this but I have to fill you in if he won’t. Because when that cold, brutal reality closes in on us we’re going to need a friend, and that’s still what you are.
This led fans to ask if Mr Robot himself might be replacing Elliot as narrator for the last season.
The latest teaser comes after the final season trailer was released – showing the creepy 2015 Christmas world the last 13 episodes will inhabit.
The show will continue to follow computer programmer Elliot (Rami Malek) and Mr Robot as they ‘embark into dangerous territory in their mission to target the one percent’.
Malek has already revealed his character Elliot might be ‘crossing a line’ down a never-ending dark path as the series comes to a ‘very, very climatic’ ending.
An earlier teaser trailer for the Amazon Prime series showed depressive recluse Elliot staring hauntingly down the lens.
Mr Robot has been a massive cult hit for the streaming service, receiving a Golden Globe – both for the show itself and Christian Bale – and its actors winning a number of Emmys.
Mr Robot season 4 is released on October 6 on USA Network.
