Based on the best-selling Bill Hodges trilogy (Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch) by Stephen King, MR. MERCEDES returns for its much-anticipated third season. When beloved local author John Rothstein (Bruce Dern) is found murdered, Hodges (Brendan Gleeson), Holly (Justine Lupe), and Jerome (Jharrel Jerome), along with local police, must track down his killer. But this case is more complex than the cold-blooded killing of an American icon. Unpublished novels of Rothstein’s were stolen from his home, and they are worth millions. As the case unfolds, the trio learns that although Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) may be gone, his depravity lives on in the lives of his victims.

I spoke to Maximiliano Hernández via Zoom last week to talk about season three of Mr.Mercedes. He discussed the disadvantage of playing a character that is not in the trilogy and what character from the novel he would have liked to play. In addition, he shared a little bit about his debut as a filmmaker in the near future.
Season three of MR. MERCEDES premieres today on Peacock. All 10 episodes will drop at once. Seasons one and two are now streaming on Peacock.
