March 7 was the first day of production on season two of USA’s “Mr. Robot,” and star Christian Slater had a question for his showrunner, Sam Esmail. “I wasn’t sure where we were in the story,” recounts Slater, who plays the titular character.

In fact, that’s where Esmail will be positioned all season. In addition to serving as creator and head writer for the Golden Globe-winning drama, the 38-year-old creative has taken on the additional challenge of helming all 10 episodes for the show’s sophomore season.
