Stephen King’s Mr Mercedes renewed for a third series

David E Kelly’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Mr Mercedes has been a noteworthy crime drama this year.

Starring Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway, it tells the story of Bill Hodges, a detective way past his prime who gets his groove back when the psychopathic killer from a high-profile cold case re-emerges to mock the old man.

Broadcast on STARZPlay here in the UK (via Amazon Prime), the series has now been renwed for a third run.

The second season of Mr Mercedes 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.
