Newswire: Mr. Robot’s season finale postponed in wake of killings
USA has postponed tonight’s scheduled season finale of Mr. Robot, in light of the murders that occurred live on-air this morning in Virginia. The channel released a brief statement: “The previously filmed season finale of Mr. Robot contains a graphic scene similar in nature to today’s tragic events in Virginia. Out of respect to the victims, their families and colleagues, and our viewers, we are postponing tonight’s episode. Our thoughts go out to all those affected during this difficult time.” The network will instead air an encore presentation of last week’s penultimate installment. The finale will now run next Wednesday, September 2, at 10 p.m. ET.
