Stephen King's Mr. Mercedes renewed for season 3

Truth be told, I have yet to sit down and get to binge-watching AT&T Audience Network's Stephen King series MR. MERCEDES. It's high on my must-watch TV list and I plan to get to it as soon as possible. And I'd better get to it sooner rather than later as today we have word via Variety that the series has been renewed for Season 3.

Just like the first and second season's of the series, the third season has been confirmed to run 10-episodes as well, and production on the new batch of episodes will begin in Charleston, South Carolina in early 2019. The show is then all set to premiere later in the year.

Senior executive vice president and chief content officer for AT&T Daniel York:

Mr. Mercedes has resonated with such a wide audience, so we’re thrilled to bring it back for a third season for our customers. David E. Kelley, Jack Bender, and Sonar have crafted a series that honors the original work by Stephen King and we can’t wait to see where they take the show in a ‘post-Mr. Mercedes world.’

The show is based on King’s book trilogy consisting of Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch. The second season took place 

A year after Brady Hartsfield’s (Harry Treadaway) thwarted attempt to perpetrate a second mass murder in the community of Bridgton, Ohio. Since the incident, Hartsfield had been hospitalized in a vegetative state. Retired Detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) did his best to move on from his Brady obsession, teaming up with Holly Gibney (Justine Lupe) to open Finders Keepers, a private investigative agency. But when unexplainable occurrences began to affect hospital staff members attending to Brady, Hodges was haunted by the feeling that Brady was somehow responsible.

David E. Kelley will return to oversee the writer’s room with Jack Bender directing. Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey will return as executive producers along with Tom Lesinski, Jenna Santoianni, Shane Elrod, and Kate Regan. Once again for the cheap seats, production on the new batch of 10 one-hour episodes is scheduled to begin in early 2019 in Charleston, South Carolina with the premiere slated for later in the year. Until then, you can snag the first season on DVD over on Amazon RIGHT HERE.
