‘The Killing’ Season 3: New Trailer and Behind-The-Scenes Look Previews “Darker” World
While all the broadcast networks ready their major announcements, we haven’t forgotten about AMC’s June 2 premiere of ‘The Killing‘ season 3, bringing to light an all-new case that reunites Detectives Holder and Linden in search of a dark underworld of missing children and Death Row inmates. The latest look at the new season’s darker and more disturbing Seattle landscape has arrived, so get the inside scoop on ‘The Killing’ season 3 right here!
Regardless of your feelings on the first two seasons, ‘The Killing’ will return for an all-new third season on June 2, bringing back Holder and Linden for a new case one year after the close of the Rosie Larsen Murder. Via The Hollywood Reporter and AMC, today we get our best look yet at the new episodes, which open up the Seattle murder-mystery drama into a dark new world of youth runaways, death-row inmates, and a new serial killer that connects to Linden’s past.
The new season of the AMC drama will open up with Linden having left the force until 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.
Showrunner Veena Sud told us that the new case drew inspiration from real-life incidents, including photographer Mary Ellen Mark’s work depicting street youths in the 1970s, and the police investigation of Washington serial killer Gary Ridgway, which involved 50 women disappearing over a course of 20 years. “The police ‘murder board’ had all these pictures, most were mugshots…staring at you, not smiling. The more I looked at those photos I started to imagine the burden of responsibility those cops felt seeing those women look at them every day.”
In addition to the casting of Peter Sarsgaard as death row inmate Ray Seward, ‘The Killing’ season 3 also boasts ‘Battlestar Galactica’ vet Aaron Douglas, ‘Flashpoint’s’ Hugh Dillon, Johnny Ray Gill, Amy Semeitz, Max Fowler and Elias Koteas among its cast.
