    Finders Keepers was also my favorite of the three.

    I thought that the season 2 was supposed to be based on FINDERS KEEPERS, but am I wrong to read this press release that it may more be related to END OF WATCH?

    Hard to say. Montez isn't a character in any of the books.

    New addition to the casting
    > http://deadline.com/2018/01/mr-merce...es-1202248428/

    Ferrer will play Cora Babineau, wife of Dr. Felix Babineau (Huston) and head of marketing at a major pharmaceutical corporation, who’s even more ambitious than she is beautiful. If her husband has a genius for manipulating people from the inside out as he reaches into their brains and rewires them, Cora has a genius for influencing people from the outside in. Her beauty, brains and force of will, judiciously softened with poise and extreme charm, make her a formidable saleswoman, of whatever she’s peddling.

    The week of Feb 12th, filming was done at the house across the street from a co-worker of mine in Charleston. He had no idea what they were filming. He asked if I knew what Mr. Mercedes was. I haven't seen the first season yet so I don't know if this house was used before, but it will be in the new season. They filmed inside the house and did aerial shots.

    They also used the white house next door and covered it in "a crazy amount of rose bushes." But no filming inside.

    Sounds like Hodges' house. He has a next door neighbor in the series (played by Holland Taylor not in the books) who has a flower garden.

    I think the goal here's to have as few people as possible watch the show.

    I had no idea superchannel even existed until herberwest posted the link.

    FWIW Audience network which offers the show is a channel offered as a "Thank you" exclusively to Directv customers, if that helps.

    And DirecTV has a streaming service called DirecTV Now which offers a free trial for a week so you can definitely watch the show, and even other stuff Audience does, like You Me Her.

    That's right I forgot. I always thought it was pretty cool of DTV to do that for it's customers. And it was something that DTV did prior to AT&T. With all the shows they have now started to offer, You, Me, Her, Mr. Mercedes & Ice to name a few I'd bet the window is closing for it, and may in fact have already closed. IDK seeing as I've been a DTV subscriber for over 25 years. They may now charge new subscribers for it IDK. In the beginning though it was a freebie.

    Stephen King adaptation Mr. Mercedes will be back for a ten-episode second season on August 22, AT&T Audience Network told Deadline during the show’s panel at The Contenders Emmys. Director Jack Bender joined stars Brendan Gleeson, Harry Treadaway, Kelly Lynch and Holland Taylor to discuss the series’ first run.

    Speaking with Deadline’s Joe Utichi, Bender offered his first impressions of Mr. Mercedes. “When Stephen first sent me the galleys, I was thrilled,” the director said. “He had never written a detective novel, and I found it fascinating that Stephen was writing this time about the monsters inside the people, as opposed to the monsters outside the people.”

    Not getting into specific details about Season 2, the cast instead discussed the complexities of the series’ characters, including a deranged serial killer (Treadaway) and the detective (Gleeson) who is set on bringing him down.

    For Gleeson, what was so compelling about Mr. Mercedes was the series’ empathy in its full, human portrayal of even the most complicated, troubled characters. “When I talked to Jack and David Kelly, who I think is probably the best writer working at the moment in terms of human relationships, it was all about the inner conflict going on with everybody,” the actor explained. “Where we can be monsters, and kind of angels, all in one package.”

    Mae. I'm curious to know if you have any insight why this isn't being released on DVD/Blu-Ray? I still need to check into the streaming service for the free week.

    I wish I knew. I would love to pick up some of their lesser known shows like Billy & Billie on blu-ray. They may be holding them back so people sign up for the service. The streaming service should be a good alternative though, the shows Audience has are good.

    Because it airs on the AT&T Audience Network, not a lot of people had a chance to watch the Stephen King TV show, Mr. Mercedes.

    That is disappointing because while too many people were watching the disappointing Spike TV version of The Mist, this AT&T exclusive Stephen King series was knocking it out of the park.

    Based on the first book in King’s Bill Hodges trilogy, Mr. Mercedes tells the story of a retired police officer (Brendan Gleeson) who finds himself taunted by a mass murderer from the past that he was never able to catch.

    This show is not a mystery, either. It is a thriller because we meet the killer from the start, in the psychotic Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway). The murders from years back saw Brady drive his Mercedes into a crowd of people camped out for a job fair, killing 16 of them before escaping without a trace.

    Hodges has since retired and is trying to live out his life when he gets a computer message from the killer, who decides to taunt Hodges in an attempt to drive the man insane. All the while, Hodges suffers from some medical problems, is romanced by a neighbor, and ends up teaming with the sister of one of the deceased to try to find out who the murderer is once and for all.

    At the same time, Brady is going about his life as a home repairman for a big box computer store. His home life is messed up, with an alcoholic mother (Kelly Lynch) who seems to have a little too much love for her son and people around him who push him until he is ready to kill again.

    David E. Kelly (Chicago Hope, Boston Legal) was the showrunner for this Stephen King adaptation — King’s first attempt at a detective novel. When asked at a Deadline panel about the Mr. Mercedes TV show, Brendan Gleason looked at it in shades of gray.

    “With somebody like Bill, we can see the consequences of his obsession with his own job; we can see how he can drive people away from him.”

    As for Brady, Treadaway explained why he was as much of a victim as Hodges was — in the first season at least.

    “He’s not just a cut-out monster. He is a troubled victim in many ways, of his life, of his upbringing,”

    It is an interesting take, as Stephen King has mastered the creation of monsters — both human and otherwise. As the book series moved on to Finders Keepers and End of Watch, Brady became much more of a monster as the series took a more supernatural slant, as expected from King.

    However, whether the Mr. Mercedes TV show does that or not is another story. One of the reasons it worked so well was that it was grounded, felt dirty at times, but always seemed real. This was about damaged people hurting, and that is why it was such a success.

    Producer Jack Bender credited David E. Kelly with that.

    “I think one of the things that David Kelley brilliantly brought to the pilot, and then to the rest of the first season, was empathy for all these complicated, screwed up people, that we all are in our own ways.”

    Mr. Mercedes season 2 is returning to Audience Network on August 22, 2018.

    Actually, unless something has changed, that network is a "freebie" from Directv. You get it when you sign on with DTV as a "Thank You". At least it was when it was just DTV and no money grubbing AT&T!!!! LOL
