USA just can't get enough of cyber thriller "Mr. Robot," ordering a third season of the enigmatic drama series.

The renewal comes in the midst of the show's season two run, though the move isn't all that surprising, considering all the buzz surrounding the series and its lead, Rami Malek. "Mr. Robot" has been racking up accolades since its launch last summer, taking home a bunch of trophies from the likes of the Golden Globes, the Writers Guild of America, and the Peabody Awards. Most recently, it earned an armful of Emmy award nominations -- including nods for Malek and Best Drama Series -- and claimed the Outstanding New Program statuette at the TCA Awards earlier this month.

"We couldn't be more proud of 'Mr. Robot,' a series that has pushed boundaries, captured the cultural zeitgeist and been honored as one of the best dramas on television," said NBCUniversal Cable entertainment president Chris McCumber in a statement announcing the renewal. "Midway through its second season, 'Mr. Robot' continues to break new ground and open up new opportunities for the network. We can't wait to see where [series creator] Sam Esmail and the entire brilliant 'Robot' team take us next."

Season two of "Mr. Robot" is slated to wrap its run in September. No word yet on when season three may premiere, though it will likely follow in previous seasons' footsteps and debut sometime during the summer of 2017.
