About TV show Mr. Mercedes season 2
The retired police officer Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) pursues an unsolved case: Once a Mercedes driver had several people killed by raging with the vehicle into a line of people waiting in front of the job market waiting people raced. The killer was never caught. Now that Bill is retired, the killer is back in contact with him. With perfidious letters, e-mails and computer hacks, he gradually brings Bill to his wits.
Screenwriter and producer David E. Kelley (best known from Practice - The Lawyers, Ally McBeal and Boston Legal) adapted Stephen King's 2014 novel of the same name. The novel is the first of the Bill Hodges trilogy. This was followed by the novels Finderlohn (2015) and Mind Control (2016). Kelley acts as the showrunner in the series, in which Jack Bender (known by Lost) directed most of the episodes and, like Kelley, is listed as executive producer.
In May 2016, the US broadcaster Audience, part of AT & T Inc., gave the project the green light for a ten-part first season. After Anton Yelchin, who was scheduled to play the role of Brady Hartsfield, died in June 2016, his role with Harry Treadaway was reinstated.
The shooting took place in early 2017 in Charleston, South Carolina. The US station Audience broadcasts the first season since August 9, 2017 for the first time.
