‘The Killing’ Season 3 to Premiere June 2 with Two-Hour Episode
HBO's 'True Blood' isn't the only series making noise about its upcoming premiere, as AMC's once-cancelled murder-mystery drama 'The Killing' has officially set its own third season premiere, two weeks ahead of the game. The all-new season with returning characters Detective Sarah Linden ('World War Z's Mireille Enos) and Detective Stephen Holder ('RoboCop's Joel Kinnaman) will premiere on Sunday, June 2 with a two-hour installment, but will the new season make up for grievances against the first two? Find out all there is to know inside!
Where once it seemed that 'The Killing' had been firmly lain to rest, now the revived AMC drama's third season will officially return this summer. The cable network has set a June 2 premiere for 'The Killing' season 3, kicking off the first of 12 episodes with a two-hour premiere.
Says series creator/executive producer Veena Sud:
I am grateful to AMC, Fox TV Studios and Netflix for their commitment to the show and their efforts in bringing The Killing back to air. I’m also thrilled to be working with our incredible writing team as we continue to explore the lives of Sarah and Holder, who, like so many real-life detectives, grapple with the consequences to their own lives of a no-holds-barred immersion in the world of a homicide investigation.
In addition to the recent casting of ‘BSG’ vet Aaron Douglas, ‘Flashpoint’s’ Hugh Dillon, Johnny Ray Gill and Peter Sarsgaard’s role as fellow death row inmate and sinisterly dominant “lifelong convict” Tom Seward, ‘The Killing’s’ third season also boasts among its cast Amy Semeitz, Max Fowler and Elias Koteas.
The new season of the AMC drama will open up a year after the close of the Rosie Larsen murder that dominated the first two seasons, with Linden having left the force until ex-partner Stephen Holder’s search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to Linden’s previous murder investigation. ‘The Killing’ season 3 understandably won’t involve the Larsen Family, nor will seasons 1 and 2 regular Mayor Darren Richmond (Billy Campbell) appear.
