Two New Actors Come Aboard “Mr. Mercedes” for Season 2

In a year so full of successful Stephen King adaptations, we suppose it should come as no surprise that AT&T’s Audience Network was able to find an audience for their King-adapted “Mr. Mercedes” series last year. Enough of an audience, in fact, that a second season was ordered ahead of the premiere season’s finale.

Deadline reports tonight that Jack Huston (“Boardwalk Empire”) and Maximiliano Hernandez (Sicario) have joined the cast for the forthcoming second season. Huston will play Brady Hartsfield’s doctor Dr. Felix Babineau, while Hernandez will portray Assistant DA Antonio Montez.

Harry Treadaway returns as Hartsfield, alongside Brendan Gleeson as Bill Hodges. Jharrel Jerome, Scott Lawrence, Breeda Wool, Justine Lupe and Holland Taylor are also back.

The second season will be based on King’s best-selling Bill Hodges Trilogy, which includes Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers and End of Watch.

Production begins next month in Charleston, South Carolina. Season 2 will premiere this summer on DirecTV, AT&T U-verse and DirecTV Now.

    Ugh this picture just reminds me of what a fucking travesty the end of Boardwalk Empire was. I know they had to wrap it up and everything but what an unfulfilling end for every awesome character involved. Harrow, Nelson, Chalky, Rothstein.. 5 seasons investing in them and boom. Gone. Michael Shannon especially, I love that crazy ugly mother fucker in everything, but Nelson was maniacal perfection. Wasted.

    I state that I
    have not yet seen the first season, but I do not understand one thing:
    this second season is based on Finders Keepers or again on Mr. Mercedes?

    I really enjoyed the first season even if it was a tad slow in places .
    SPOILER ALERT.
    I really thing that the death of Kelly Lynchs character was one of the most horrific things I saw last year I just couldn’t get it out of my head for days and her portrayal of such a pathetic soul was pretty amazing as were all of the performances .
    I haven’t read any of the books so its all fresh and new to me .

      Yeah Simon it was slow at times, but still held my interest.

        Yep 🙂

    Jack Huston is a great actor. I’m still pissed he’s not gonna be the lead in the upcoming Crow remake.
