Creator Sam Esmail
Earlier this year, Esmail dropped a few breadcrumbs about the new season at PaleyFest, saying, "There will be a lot more backstory that will be shown, and the timeline will get a little clearer. Not a hundred percent clearer, but a little clearer . . . Elliot committed a crime in the first season, and we're going to see ramifications of that in the second season."
The ever-cryptic Esmail also told EW that the new season is "10 times better than the first season." We'll just have to trust him!
