While Spike recently cancelled “The Mist” after just one season, we’re happy to report that another small screen Stephen King adaptation is having much better luck.
Variety reports today that AT&T’s Audience Network has renewed “Mr. Mercedes” for a second season, ahead of tomorrow night’s Season 1 finale.
“The second season will be based on Stephen King’s best-selling Bill Hodges Trilogy, which includes, Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers and End of Watch.”
David E. Kelley will return to write Season 2, with Jack Bender returning as director. Season 2 will be home to 10 one-hour episodes.
King, Kelley and Bender will also continue to serve as executive producers, along with Dennis Lehane, who will also write. The series is produced by Sonar Entertainment.
Production will begin February 2018.
