New Mr. Robot clip focuses on Tyrell Wellick, details major hack

Where in the world is he?

A new clip for the second season of USA's Mr. Robot has shifted the focus from hacktivsit Elliot Alderson to ex-financial executive, Tyrell Wellick.

The one-minute clip gives a little more insight into the massive attack — led by Elliot and his hacking group, fsociety —that apparently brought down all of E Corp (otherwise known as Evil Corp), the conglomerate Elliot thinks is destroying the world. The hack, which is now being referred to as the "Five/Nine," was thought to be masterminded by Wellick and has made him public enemy number one.

The clip also reiterates just how serious and widespread the hack was, and hints that President Obama and White House officials were looking into it, too. The video doesn't provide any more information on what happened to Elliot during his blackout that occurred at the end of the first season. The first official trailer for the new season, however, does have a little more information.

The second season of Mr. Robot, which stars Rami Malek as Elliot, Martin Wallstrom as Tyrell and Christian Slater as Mr. Robot, returns to USA on July 13 at 10 p.m. ET.
