Mr. Mercedes cast
Brenden Gleeson returns as former police detective Bill Hodges. Also back is Harry Treadway, the serial killer Brady (Mr. Mercedes) from the first season.
Breeda Wool is back as Lou Linklatter, who is on trial for murder after seeking vengeance against Mr. Mercedes. Brett Gelman (Stranger Things) joins the cast as the defense attorney, Natalie Paul (The Sinner) as the A.D.A. and Glynn Turman (How to Get Away with Murder) as the judge in the case.
Gabriel Ebert (The Good Fight) joins the cast this season as Morris Bellamy, the newest serial killer. Bruce Dern is John Rothstein, the murdered author.
Kate Mulgrew (Orange is the New Black) is also a new cast member as Alma Lane, who seems to have as much of a stake in the murder of the author as Morris.
Mr. Mercedes season 3 plot synopsis
The first two seasons of Mr. Mercedes followed retired police detective Bill Hodges.
The first season saw him in the crosshairs of a deranged serial killer who got away with his murder years before, despite Hodges’ investigation.
He returned to taunt Hodges in a game of cat and mouse until the season ended with the killer, Brady, injured and in a coma that he might never return from.
Season 2 saw Hodges as a private investigator and still found a way to keep Brady involved through a very unique manner.
Season 3 will bring a new villain into the picture in Morris Bellamy (Gabriel Ebert) who takes the reigns from Brady, even though the original serial killer will remain a strong part of the show.
Morris kills a famous author named John Rothstein and a manuscript that Rothstein was working on is missing. It also appears that Lou Linklatter’s (Breeda Wool) murder trial will play a large role this season.
Producer Jack Bender also insinuated that this might not be the final season, despite Finders Keepers being the last book Stephen King wrote in the series.
Mr. Mercedes season 3 returns to Audience Network on Sept. 10.
