NBC has just picked up the back nine episodes of ‘Mercy’ so it will have a full-season on NBC. This is great news as Kate Mulgrew mentioned at the Big Apple Comic Con that a future storyline will deal with her husband on the show being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I know Kate is very pleased that the producers/writers are incorporating Alzheimer’s into the storyline. Hopefully this will be an opportunity to make people more aware of the disease and also be a touching storyline.
Thanks to a Totally Kate contributor for the link announcing the pick-up:
Mercy airs Wednesdays at 8PM ET on NBC!
