TV Worth Watching
"Mr. Mercedes" Season 2 (Wednesday on Audience Network at 10 p.m.)Audience Network
Everything Stephen King touches is gold these days. Brendan Gleeson (Bill Hodges) and Harry Treadaway (Brady Hartsfield) return for Season 2 of this series based on King's "Mr. Mercedes" trilogy. Be warned, though: Season 2 will be inspired by the third and final book, "End of Watch," rather than "Finders Keepers." During Comic-Con, EP/director Jack Bender explained that it's because the heroes don't even come into the story until halfway through the book and that didn't wash with the TV series plans. The 10-episode second season, which premieres August 22, adds several new stars -- including Jack Huston as Hartsfield's doctor, Felix Badineau; and Maximiliano Hernandez as Assistant DA Antonio Montez.
