Plot Synopsis

Based on the Stephen King book of the same name and adapted for television by David E. Kelley, MR. MERCEDES centers on a demented killer, Brady Hartsfield, who taunts a retired police detective, Bill Hodges, with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private -- and potentially felonious -- crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again. As Hodges struggles to maintain his sanity, both his former partner Pete and his next-door neighbor Ida Silver take notice. Brady's wife, Deborah, worries about him, as he gives her a window into his latest work. Hodges connects with Janey Patterson, the younger sister of the late Olivia Trelawney, who hires him as a private detective.
On Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT, AT&T/DirecTV's Audience Network premiered the season finale of MR. MERCEDES. In the season ender, "Jibber-Jibber Chicken Dinner," when another murder victim is discovered, suspicions about Brady are confirmed. As the police prepare for another massacre, Hodges fears for the safety of those he loves. Two days earlier -- on October 9 -- Audience Network renewed MR. MERCEDES for a 10-episode second season.
