Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes season 3 is coming to Peacock in March

Last Updated on August 5, 2021

The three seasons of the Stephen King-inspired television series Mr. Mercedes aired on Audience Network from August of 2017 to November of 2019. Then Audience ceased operations, becoming a preview channel for the HBO Max streaming service, so Mr. Mercedes had to find a new home. The NBCUniversal streaming service Peacock ended up requiring the rights to the show, and the first two seasons of Mr. Mercedes have been available to watch on Peacock since last October. If you've been wondering when season 3 is going to be released, we have good news: Peacock has announced that Mr. Mercedes season 3 will be available to watch on the streaming service as of Thursday, March 4th. All ten episodes of the season will drop at once.

Mr. Mercedes season 3 stars Brendan Gleeson, Justine Lupe, Jharrel Jerome, Breeda Wool, Holland Taylor, Kate Mulgrew, Gabriel Ebert, Maximiliano Hernández, Rarmian Newton, Josh Daugherty, Claire Bronson, Brett Gelman, Bruce Dern, Glynn Turman, Natalie Paul, Patch Darragh, and Meg Steedle.

The show has the following synopsis: 

Based on the best-selling Bill Hodges trilogy (Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch) by Stephen King, MR. MERCEDES returns for its much-anticipated third season. When beloved local author John Rothstein is found murdered, Hodges, Holly, and Jerome, along with local police, must track down his killer. But this case is more complex than the cold-blooded killing of an American icon. Unpublished novels of Rothstein’s were stolen from his home, and they are worth millions. As the case unfolds, the trio learns that although Brady Hartsfield may be gone, his depravity lives on in the lives of his victims.

I watched the first two seasons of Mr. Mercedes before the show moved to Peacock, but haven't watched season 3 yet. I'm glad to hear it will be available very soon.

Mr. Mercedes was produced by Sonar Entertainment and Temple Hill Entertainment. The series was developed by David E. Kelly, who served as executive producer alongside King, Jonathan Shapiro, and Jack Bender.
