Mr. Mercedes returns for Season 2 this August, with episodes set to premiere day-and-date in the UK on STARZPLAY.
Based on the best-selling Stephen King novel, and starring Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful), Mr. Mercedes is a thrill ride of horror and suspense. The series follows a demented killer who taunts a retired police detective with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring him to justice before he can strike again.
The series is adapted by David E. Kelly (Big Little Lies) and directed by Jack Bender (Under the Dome, Game of Thrones). Season 2 will premiere on 23rd August on STARZPLAY, at the same time as it airs in the USA.
