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.
From supervillains to scarlet speedsters, 'Arrow' season 2 seems to get bigger and bigger with each passing day. The CW DC drama has already cast a plethora of new stars in its sophomore season beginning October 9 but has made a real 'Killing' of its latest casting in AMC breakout star Bex Taylor-Klaus. 'The Killing's former Bullet will crop up in Starling City opposite series regular Colton Haynes (Roy Harper), but what famous DC character might the young star play, and what does it mean for season 2?
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?
Just when you thought you were out, 'The Killing' pulls you back in with a two-hour season 3 finale, revealing (surprise!) that things aren't quite done yet, and there are still some major revelations about the serial killer case. It's a bit brazen, and a little jarring, given that the season seemed to be winding down so beautifully.
After clearing Pastor Mike of guilt (mostly) in last week's episode of 'The Killing,' Linden and Holder now resume their search for the kiddie pornographer from the motel in a desperate attempt to find their serial killer (and maybe still save Kallie) before it's too late. The title of this week's episode is "Reckoning," and it could not be more apt.
