Mr. Mercedes Season 3 is coming to the Audience Network, continuing the TV adaptation of Stephen King’s Bill Hodges books.
Mr. Mercedes is a gripping thriller about a psychopathic killer and his hunter has managed to impress both critics and viewers. Therefore, it was certainly no surprise when the series was renewed for a third season. The production for Season 2 kicked off on January 11, 2018, and going by the official announcements, the next installment will cover three novels in the Bill Hodges trilogy by Stephen King. It has also been confirmed by audience network that the upcoming season will contain ten episodes and frankly, nobody doubted that the show will be picked up for another round. The renewal of Mr. Mercedes Season 3 arrived shortly after the late-summer-launched Season 2 wrapped its run on October 24, 2018, and has a late 2019 release date. Here is everything you need to know about the third season of the gripping series.

I’m currently learning how to draw realistic bodies & who better to draw than Kate Mulgrew as Alma Lane in Mr Mercedes?
Shading is not at all finished.
Nowhere near completed.

It has been reported that the third season has begun its production though, as Deadline reported, it has not been without incident. On March 2, special effect tech, Mike Wilks, was electrocuted while the production was shooting in the rain. Thankfully, he survived, but he had to go through a number of surgeries to repair his hands and feet, and the amputation of four toes. The mythology of the series focuses on retired police detective Bill Hodges who finds himself in the center of a circuitous psychological game involving the psychopathic serial killer, Brady Hartsfield, whose initial criminal claim to fame involved plowing a Mercedes into a line of the job seeker. Daniel York, Senior Exec VP and Chief Content Officer at AT&T said in a statement, "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 series was created by prolific legal drama visionary David E. Kelley, who is confirmed to resume his duties as showrunner for Season 3 along with director Jack Bender. Both of them also serve as executive producers, along with Temple Hill Entertainment's Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni of Sonar and AT&T Audience Network's Shane Elrod and Kate Regan. Most notably, Stephen King himself will remain a credited executive producer on the series.
The official synopsis of the series reads, "A retired police detective, a teenage black boy, and a neurotic woman team up to form an unlikely group of heroes who stop a killer known as Mr. Mercedes from detonating a bomb during a sold-out pop concert in this novel by Stephen King. Mr. Mercedes is the first installment in the Bill Hodges trilogy."
On November 19, 2018, AT&T's owned Audience Network officially confirmed that the crime thriller Mr. Mercedes had been renewed for a third season. No release date for the series has been announced as of now, but keep an eye out for this space as we will update it as soon as any news breaks.
