    I hadn't heard that theory before.

    I just hope that if they continue on, it doesn't turn into another Under the Dome or The Mist where once they start straying away from the source material, they just completely fuck it up.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I didn't quite catch the Brady into Lou bit, I had already theorized that they would do some reshaping and take on the 2nd book in the third season. I suppose they could figure a way to into, Hodge's et al easy enough and could even perhaps have Brady jump from Lou into the FK villains mind(?) (i forget his name at the moment.

    I really enjoyed the series so far and yes, S2 was a little more entertaining than S1. The casting has been pretty good for the main characters if a little questionable on some of the lesser/guest stars casting. Writing and directing has been tight as well IMHO. I'll tune in for S# for sure.

    Gabriel Ebert (Ricki and the Flash) and Rarmian Newton (Rise) are set as series regulars and Glynn Turman (How To Get Away With Murder) will recur on the upcoming third season of AT&T Audience Network’s critically praised drama series Mr. Mercedes, from Sonar Entertainment. Production on the Stephen King adaptation is underway in Charleston, South Carolina.

    Season 2 took place a year after Brady Hartsfield’s (Harry Treadaway) thwarted attempt to perpetrate a second mass murder in the community of Bridgton, Ohio. Since the incident, Hartsfield had been hospitalized in a vegetative state. Retired Detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) did his best to move on from his Brady obsession, teaming up with Holly Gibney (Justine Lupe) to open Finders Keepers, a private investigative agency. But when unexplainable occurrences began to affect hospital staff members attending to Brady, Hodges was haunted by the feeling that Brady was somehow responsible.

    Ebert will play Morris Bellamy, intelligent, well-educated if not middle class, a volatile and charismatic wolf in sheep’s clothing. When he was younger he had ambitions of becoming a famous writer but ended up with a much less exciting life in Ohio.

    Newton plays Peter Saubers, 16, smart and personable, he’s a junior in high school and on the college track. From a seemingly happy home, but that picturesque Midwestern life was derailed when his father was disabled during the Mr. Mercedes massacre.

    Turman recurs as Judge Bernard Raines, the no-nonsense judge presiding over Lou Linklatter’s murder trial, he suffers no fools and takes no prisoners. He is none too pleased with the lawyers working on this case who seem hell bent for trial.

    David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies, Ally McBeal) returns for Season 3 to oversee the writer’s room and Jack Bender (Lost, Under the Dome) to direct. In addition to King, Kelley and Bender, Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey of Temple Hill Entertainment, Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni of Sonar Entertainment, and Shane Elrod and Kate Regan of AT&T Audience Network will continue to serve as executive producers.

    Ebert appeared in recent guest-starring roles on Instinct and The Blacklist and in features Ricki and the Flash, and upcoming The Devil All The Time. He’s repped by UTA.

    Newton was one of the leads in NBC’s Rise and recently recurred on Tell Me A Story at CBS All Access. He’ll next be seen in a recurring role on AMC horror drama series NOSA42. He is repped by Gersh, Active Artists Management, Atlas Artists and Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson.

    Turman can currently be seen on How To Get Away With Murder and in upcoming roles on The Red Line for CBS and in the Netflix feature Sextuplets as well as alongside Ben Affleck in the Warner Bros. film The Has Been for director Gavin O’Connor. Turman is repped by The Rosenzweig Group and SMS Talent.

    Sounds like this season will be mostly following the second book then?
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Pretty much, along with some new material relating to the after-effects of S2

    I guess that makes sense logically. The story seems to flow a little better putting the 2nd book last. I remember reading it and thinking it was out of place for the trilogy.

    I thought the same. More stand alone.

    “Mr. Mercedes” has added three recurring guest stars to the upcoming third season on AT&T Audience Network. Kate Mulgrew will play Alma Lane, a lifelong resident of Bridgton, Ohio; Brett Gelman is Roland Finklestein,a passionate defense attorney Lou Linklatter (Breeda Wool) in her murder trial; and Natalie Paul will play Sarah Pace, a prosecutor on Lou’s case. The series is based on author Stephen King’s Bill Hodges trilogy, and the third season will closely follow the second book “Finders Keepers,” exploring the fallout from Brady Hartsfield’s (Harry Treadaway) massacre.
