The third season of Mr. Mercedes will receive its UK premiere on StarzPlay on Thursday September 19th, it has been announced.
Mr. Mercedes is based on Stephen King’s Bill Hodges novels and was adapted for television by The Practice and Goliath scribe David E. Kelley. The drama series is produced by Temple Hill Entertainment and Sonar Entertainment and stars Brendan Gleeson as Bill Hodges, Justine Lupe as Holly Gibney, Jharrel Jerome as Jerome Robinson and Breeda Wool as Lou Linklatter. Guest stars include Holland Taylor as Ida Silver and Bruce Dern as John Rothstein.
In season three, when beloved local author John Rothstein (Bruce Dern) is found murdered, Hodges (Brendan Gleeson), Holly (Justine Lupe), and Jerome (Jharrel Jerome), along with local police, must track down his killer. But this case is more complex than the cold-blooded killing of an American icon. Unpublished novels of Rothstein’s were stolen from his home, and they are worth millions. As the case unfolds, the trio learns that although Brady may be gone, his depravity lives on in the lives of his victims.
