Season 2 of Mr. Mercedes releases its full trailer and it's incredibly tense
Mr. Mercedes returns in a few weeks. Yes!
Brendan Gleeson can do no wrong and if anyone tells you that the star of Braveheart, The General and I Went Down isn't a national treasure, you've our permission to smack them over the head.
That should teach them.
On that note, we do love Mr Gleeson when he's playing a slightly pissed off and foul-mouthed character - see his work in The Guard and In Bruges for further proof of this point- but for anyone that was addicted to Season 1 of Mr. Mercedes, you'll know that Gleeson's turn as Detective Bill Hodges was some of his finest work.
If you haven't seen the first season yet, consider this to be your spoiler alert warning.
Ok, what's in store?
The second season picks up a year after Brady Hartsfield’s (Harry Treadway) thwarted attempt to perpetrate a second mass murder in the community of Bridgton, Ohio.
Since the incident, Brady has been hospitalised in a coma. Retired Detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) has done his very best to move on from his Brady obsession, teaming up with Holly Gibney (Justine Lupe) to open Finders Keepers, a private investigative agency. But when unexplainable occurrences begin to affect hospital staff members that are attending to Brady, Hodges is haunted by the feeling that his nemesis is somehow responsible.
A few weeks ago, we were treated to some behind the scenes footage but the full trailer has just been released and it's clear that Brady is still tormenting Harry.
The new season of Mr. Mercedes airs in the U.S. on August 22nd and while nothing official has been announced regarding RTÉ broadcasting the show, we would be incredibly surprised if they didn't because Season 1 was excellent.
Take a look at what's in store.
