Mr. Mercedes, the AT&T Audience Network series, has been renewed for a third season. The series is an adaptation of the Stephen King of the same name. The 10-episode third season will be directed by Jack Bender and David E. Kelley will return to oversee the project.
"Stephen King breaking story, Brendan Gleeson heading the cast, Jack Bender leading the charge…I'm excited", said Kelley.
Daniel York, senior executive vice president, and chief content officer for AT&T, said, "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.'"
Production for the new season is slated to begin in early 2019.
