Peacock announced today that it will exclusively premiere a new season Mr. Mercedes, next month. The series is based on the New York Times Best-Selling Bill Hodges trilogy (Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch) by Stephen King.
The series previously aired on Audience Network and had been renewed for a third season that was not aired. Seasons 1 and 2 of Mr. Mercedes will stream exclusively on Peacock beginning October 15 with no premiere date for Season 3 set.
In Mr. Mercedes, a retired detective is tormented by a serial killer (Brady Hartsfield, aka Mr. Mercedes) through a series of letters and emails, causing him to set out on a dangerous and potentially felonious crusade to protect his loved ones and himself.
