Stephen King’s streak continues, it seems, as Mr. Mercedes has been renewed for a second season on AT&T Audience Network. Returning for the second season will be David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies) to write the script and Jack Bender (Under the Dome) as director. King, Kelley, and Bender will also continue to serve as executive producers, along with Dennis Lehane, who will also write.
“I’m excited and thrilled,” said Kelley. “Stephen King, Dennis Lehane, Jack Bender, Brendan Gleeson…this is a special team indeed.”
“Mr. Mercedes is Stephen King writing about the monsters inside his characters rather than outside,” said Bender. “We were extremely fortunate to attract an amazing cast, led by Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway, to bring these flawed, complex colorful characters to life. With Sonar and AT&T, along with great scripts and our talented team in Charleston, I am thrilled to keep telling this story.”
