What does Rami Malek think about Mr. Robot ending? Well, as you would undoubtedly expect, the actor is pretty emotional about it. The USA tech thriller’s fourth and final season will premiere this Sunday, October 6. Getting to the point of saying goodbye has packed an emotional punch for Malek.

Fans have had to wait almost two years for the series’ final season to make it to the air. Mr. Robot’s penultimate season finished airing in December 2017. Now, the show is getting ready to return to take its final bow. Rami Malek opened up about the ending at the Season 4 premiere, telling ET:

It's a tremendously emotional experience. It has been since we began shooting this fourth season, and I know that it will be at the end of this night. It's a moment in my life that is profound and prolific.

Indeed! Rami Malek was already a star on the rise when Mr. Robot launched his career into the stratosphere. He even credited the show for helping him land his Oscar-winning role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. Hence, saying goodbye to Mr. Robot marks the end of an era for Malek.

Rami Malek had previously opened up about reaching out to Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam for insight into how he let go of his famous character. Now, Malek’s ending journey as Elliot Alderson is about to begin airing. Speaking of that ending, Malek gave his thoughts on how Mr. Robot wraps up, saying:

It is a very fulfilling and cathartic ending. If I may be so bold as to say, I think we nailed it.

Based on what Rami Malek is saying, Mr. Robot fans should be pretty satisfied with the show’s finale. It does sound like there will be a sense of finality to it, as the second part of Malek’s quote addressed the potential of post-finale follow-ups.

As for the quality of the ending, Rami Malek does not seem nervous about it in the least, offering an enthusiastic endorsement of it. That definitely qualifies as an assuring sign for fans anxious over how Mr. Robot will finish up. Viewers will be able to start assessing the final season for themselves when it begins airing this weekend.

The Season 4 premiere entitled “Unauthorized” takes place at Christmastime. The logline for the episode says that Elliot and Mr. Robot are back. Meanwhile, Darlene will be dealing with some stuff, Tyrell will be bored, and Dom will struggle with heightened levels of paranoia.

Mr. Robot is one of many shows that are saying goodbye. The series joins The Big Bang Theory and Game of Thrones as part of the “graduating class,” if you will. Rami Malek and fans are likely hoping that Mr. Robot can avoid the divisive final bow of Thrones.

The series’ fourth and final season will be the one that determines Mr. Robot’s enduring legacy. After renewing the series in late 2017, it was announced in late 2018 that Season 4 would be Mr. Robot’s last. That is a long time for fans to be building their anticipation as they wonder what the ending will be.

The wait is almost over! The road to Mr. Robot’s ending begins when Season 4 premieres Sunday, October 6, at 10 p.m. ET on USA. Catch up on all of Mr. Robot’s previous seasons via Amazon Prime Video. The tech thriller’s final season is one of this fall’s premieres.
