Here are my thoughs about season 3 of Mr Mercedes.
This leaves us with a season that still has all the characters we do like, Hodges, Holly and Jerome but it’s also a season that feels a bit thin and to compensate for that has been stuffed with padding that really doesn’t bring anything to the table. Season three is OK but not much more.
In this article about how Doctor Sleep did at the Box Office there’s also some interesting news, almost hidden.
Warners was so keen on Doctor Sleep that movie studio chief Toby Emmerich had already struck a deal with director Mike Flanagan and his Intrepid Pictures to script a sequel whose working title is Hallorann, drawn from the character who appears in both The Shining and Doctor Sleep.
What do you think? Do we want a sequel to The Shining and Doctor Sleep?
Here are my thoughts about Doctor Sleep.
Doctor Sleep is a great adaptation to King’s book and followup to Kubrick’s movie. The cast (specially Rebecca) is great as are the flashbacks to the original film. Mike has even thrown in a few nods to The Dark Tower. They are small but they are there if you know what you’re looking for.
Looks like the story of Gwendy will be a trilogy. The first book was a collaboration between King and Richard Chizmar, the second is written by Chizmar who tweeted the following about the third book:
Nope, I don't know when the third volume will be pulbished; it's not written yet. I also don't know if Steve and I will be co-writing. Depends on our schedules.
