Why There Were Two Simultaneous TV Versions Of One Stephen King Character

Besides the obvious difference of Mr. Mercedes’ Justine Lupe being white and The Outsider‘s Cynthia Erivo being black, The Outsider executive producer Richard Price saw fit to change up his show’s version of Holly Gibney a noticeable amount. He also chose to not at all acknowledge or consider Gibney’s past adventures in Mr. Mercedes or the other Bill Hodges books when writing The Outsider‘s TV take on the character. Price – who served as showrunner and wrote about half the season himself – opted to treat The Outsider as a standalone story and saw the Mr. Mercedes books and show as unrelated to what he was trying to do.

Still, when The Outsider introduced Holly Gibney, it understandably left many viewers confused as to why a character they had seen so recently on the Mr. Mercedes TV show was now changed and played by a different actor. Price actually wanted to avoid any such confusion by changing Holly Gibney’s name on The Outsider, essentially making her a new character entirely. However, Stephen King, who absolutely loves Holly Gibney and considers her one of his best creations, put his foot down, insisting she not be removed from The Outsider limited series completely.  At the end of the day though, both TV versions of Holly Gibney earned praise from many, and both stand as valid interpretations of King’s character. To look at things through a more Marvel lens, it’s almost like Mr. Mercedes‘ and The Outsider‘s Holly Gibneys are Loki-esque multiverse variants.
