AMC's twice-canceled detective drama 'The Killing' gambled in its third season with the addition of award-winning character actor Peter Saarsgard, and now its fourth and final Netflix run has been given similar acclaim. Oscar nominee Joan Allen will join the Seattle murder-mystery series in its final six episodes, taking an important role in the military school setting Holder and Linden come to investigate.
'The Killing' surprised us all once again by escaping cancellation a second time, landing on Netflix for a final run of 6 episodes. At the time, it wasn't entirely clear when production would begin, or where season 4 would pick up from season 3 finale “From Up Here / The Road to Hamelin," but now 'The Killing''s final grounds have been revealed. Find out who we'll meet at a military school murder for 'The Killing''s final Netflix season!
It just won't die! That's right, AMC's rain-drenched murder-mystery drama 'The Killing' has once again been saved from cancellation for a fourth season, though not by its original network. Following its lucrative partnership to co-finance the third season, Netflix will become the new home for 'The Killing' season 4, providing a shortened and final season for detectives Holder and Linden.
Tainted though 'The Killing' may have been by its decision to draw out the Rosie Larsen mystery across a second season, few fans of the series would argue that the unexpected season 3 revival succeeded in retooling the series around a brand-new mystery, and opening the door for yet another season. AMC surprised us all with its decision to pass on season 4 (for 'Better Call Saul,' really?), but what does series star Mireille Enos have to say on 'The Killing' killing?
Familiar, if sad news today for fans of AMC's rain-soaked murder-mystery drama 'The Killing,' as it seems Holder and Linden will once again turn in their badges. After a unanimously improved third season rescued from the cancellation heap and co-financed by Netflix, AMC has opted not to proceed with a fourth season of the Joel Kinnaman-Mireille Enos starring drama.
This past Sunday, 'The Killing' season 3 came to a nerve-wracking close as the "Pied Piper" case finally unraveled, though we wouldn't dream of spoiling the killer's true identity (for that, try our review!). Even so, the closing moments of 'The Killing' season 3 portrayed a dark turn for Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos), one we may never see the end of without a season 4 renewal. So, what do Enos and the episode's ratings have to say of a potential fourth season?
As excited as we are for 'The Killing's third season to make a long-awaited premiere on AMC beginning June 2, we have a number of questions over how the Seattle murder-mystery drama will handle an all-new case, picking up from the successes and missteps of the first two seasons. 'The Killing's cast and creator Veena Sud recently addressed questions concerning the show's third season, and the answers might surprise you!
On June 2 AMC's rain-soaked, murder-mystery drama 'The Killing' will return for a third season, having been rescued from the cancellation heap under a joint deal between AMC and Netflix. The new episodes will open up some time after the close of the Rosie Larsen murder, but where has Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) been all this time? And what brings the detective out of retirement for 'The Killing' season 3? Find out the latest on the new season inside!
For all the summer returns we're looking forward to, 'The Killing' season 3 will arrive the earliest with its two-hour premiere on June 2, picking up with an all-new case for detectives Holder and Linden to solve. We've seen a few photos and teasers from the new season thus far, but none that had our favorite detectives back together again! See the new and improved Linden and Holder in the latest 'The Killing' season 3 sneak peek inside!
