Mr Mercedes gets third season

November 20th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Well, we guess this is good news for fans of Stephen King and the Mr Mercedes TV series as it has officially been renewed for a third season.

The news broke tonight on the show’s official Twitter (below) and, don’t get us wrong, there are no bigger fans of Brendan Gleeson than us lot here at FTN, but we’re wondering what is coming next fo the series as, well, it seemed all tied up last season. Anti-climatically, sure, but finished all the same.

In fact, fans of King’s trilogy of books – as I am – will know that Hodges’ (Gleeson) story is over now and is Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway’s), so what’s the plan?

Well, while nothing has been confirmed, and we don’t want to get too spoilerific here, it seemed to us that, should there be a third outing for the show, it could stray waaaaaaaaay off course from the books and perhaps give us Gleeson as the villain.

But we’re just pondering…

Whatever happens, we’ll keep you posted but, for now, Hodges is coming back and we’ll take that as a cautious win.

Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Harry Treadaway, Jharrel Jerome, Justin Lupe, Scott Lawrence, Holland Taylor, Breeda Wool, Jack Huston, Tessa Ferrer
Showrunner: David E. Kelley from the novel by Stephen King

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
