Mr. Robot season finale postponed in light of Virginia shooting


USA Network has postponed the season finale of Mr. Robot to next week in light of the recent shooting in Virginia today. A Virginia news reporter and cameraman were shot and killed today on air during a live report. The show reported in a series of tweets that the Mr. Robot finale features scene similar to today’s events.

The USA Network sleeper hit, created by Sam Esmail, will air their finale on September 2nd at the show’s regular time at 10pm. A rerun will air tonight instead of the finale. Previous shows have rescheduled episodes due to similarities to real-life situations. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hannibal, and Haven have yanked episodes due to bombings and shootings.
