Audience Network Renews 'Mr. Mercedes' for Season 3

Audience Network has today renewed its original drama series Mr. Mercedes for a third season. Production on the 10-episode season will begin in early 2019 in Charleston, South Carolina for a late 2019 premiere.

In its second season, the drama starred Brendan Gleeson, Harry Treadaway, Jharrel Jerome, Justine Lupe, Breeda Wool, Jack Huston, Maximiliano Hernandez, Tessa Ferrer, Nancy Travis and Holland Taylor.

David E. Kelley developed the drama based on the book trilogy by Stephen King. Kelley will return as showrunner for the third season, alongside director Jack Bender. They executive produce with King, Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey, Tom Lesinski, Jenna Santoianni, Shane Elrod and Kate Regan. Sonar Entertainment, Temple Hill Productions and David E. Kelley Productions produce.

"Mr. Mercedes has resonated with such a wide audience, so we're thrilled to bring it back for a third season for our customers," said Daniel York, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Content Officer, AT&T. "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."
