We nearly forgot Netflix rescued 'The Killing' from its second cancellation in as many seasons and set a six-episode farewell to debut exclusively on the streaming service, but at long last Holder and Linden (and the rain) returned. Check out the first teaser trailer for 'The Killing''s fourth and final season, along with the announcement of its August premiere!

There isn't very much to see with the first teaser for 'The Killing' season 4, other than the omnipresent rain that dominated the series from its very beginning. That said, the footage at least confirms that all six final episodes will debut on August 1 in all territories, while the first three seasons remain available to stream on the site already.

Set amid a military school murder mystery, the final season of 'The Killing' features Joan Allen as the academy's headmistress, along with student roles for Sterling Beaumon, Levi Meaden and Tyler Ross, and an appearance by Sarah's mother, as played by Frances Fisher. In addition to ‘The Killing’ season 4′s military school backdrop, the new run of episodes will most likely see what became of the relationship between Holder and Linden after the season 3 cliffhanger of “From Up Here/The Road to Hamelin” saw the latter gunning down her serial-killing former partner in cold blood against Holder’s advice.

We're definitely on board for 'The Killing' to have a proper ending, however abbreviated, but what say you? Are you excited to have Mireille Enos and Joel "RoboFlop" Kinnaman back for 'The Killing' season 4 on August 1? Watch the teaser above, and give us your final season wish list in the comments!
