After two suspenseful and tension-filled seasons, Mr. Mercedes will be back for a third round on the AT&T Audience Network!
Adapted from the Bill Hodges trilogy by Stephen King, Mr. Mercedes follows retired detective Bill Hodges, who comes out of retirement to work on his long unsolved case of the Mercedes Killer. Season one introduces us to Holly Gibney (Justine Lupe) and Jerome Robinson (Jharrel Jerome), Hodges’ partners who help him find and bring down the elusive serial killer Brady Hartsfield (magnificently played by Harry Treadaway). The season ends with Holly beating Hartsfield unconscious, putting him into a coma and leading us into season two.
The second season brings us deeper into the classic supernatural element indicative of King’s books. Brady Hartsfield spends most of this season in a coma. But thanks to an experimental drug his doctor Felix Babineau (Jack Huston) gave him, Hartsfield gained telepathic powers that allowed him to control people through technology, despite still being comatose. Once he finally wakes up, he claims he’s a changed man, a plea he tries to use for his trial. However, his ex-coworker and friend Lou (Breeda Wool), stabbed by Brady in season one, doesn’t believe him and shoots him dead in the courtroom.
Season three will pick up right where season two left off, showing us the fallout of the dramatic events surrounding Brady Hartsfield, including Lou’s fate.
Where the first two seasons adapted Mr. Mercedes and End of Watch (the final book in the trilogy), season three will take us back to Finders Keepers (book 2), introducing new characters and storylines to the dynamic show.
Season three is set to premiere on the AT&T Audience Network on September 10.
