Season 1 of USA’s Mr. Robot enjoyed the kind of acclaim that freshman shows can only dream of getting, and ahead of the new season, a collection of hackers, actors, experts and superfans are dissecting the code to the show’s success in a new special. 

In Mr. Robot Decoded, creator Sam Esmail, stars Rami Malek and Christian Slater, real-life hacker Jeff Moss and several other experts open up about how the show made an extremely technical subject relatable to a wide audience and brought humanity to hackers through main character Elliot. 

The special, airing June 20, also looks at much more than the show’s unlikely rise, though. It’s a catch-up for the poor souls who missed Season 1, an exploration of much larger questions about the morality of hacking, and a preview of Season 2. 

For a taste of what’s in store, watch the first 15 minutes of the special below, which you’re seeing only on Mashable

Season 2 of Mr. Robot begins Wednesday, July 13 at 10 p.m. ET.
