Things are set to get a little dark and gloomy at San Diego Comic Con this year as one of the panels that will be there will be giving us some thrills and chills for sure.

AT&T AUDIENCE Network’s hit series Mr. Mercedes will be having its first ever comic con panel at this year’s convention. The series, which is based on the novel of the same name, follows retired detective Bill Hodges who is still haunted by the unsolved case of “Mr. Mercedes,” who claimed sixteen lives when he drove a stolen Mercedes through a line of job-seekers at a local job fair. Meanwhile, Brady Hartsfield, the real Mr. Mercedes, reemerges to focus his attention on Hodges.

The first season of the hit series is currently available on AT&T AUDIENCE Network for streaming so if you are needing to play catch up before the second season starts, now is the time as the panel will be talking about all the things that are set to go down for the upcoming second season. The second season is apparently set to take place a year after Hartsfield’s thwarted attempt to perpetrate a second mass murder in the community of Bridgton, Ohio. Since the incident, Hartsfield has been hospitalized in a vegetative state while Hodges is trying to move on with his life. But when unexplainable occurrences begin to affect hospital staff members attending to Brady, Hodges is haunted by the feeling that Brady is somehow responsible.

As far as the panel goes, the cast members who will be in attendance has yet to be released. The series currently stars Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter) as Detective Bill Hodges and Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful) as Brady Hartsfield. They are set to be joined in the upcoming season by Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) as Brady Hartsfield’s doctor Dr. Felix Babineau, Tessa Ferrer (Grey’s Anatomy) as Dr. Babineau’s wife Cora Babineau, and Maximiliano Hernandez (Sicario) as Assistant DA Antonio Montez.

The Mr. Mercedes panel will be amongst the ones shown on Thursday night at San Diego Comic Con.
