I thought The Killing was a great series, and I was a little upset when it was yanked off the air. We knew there was a chance the show would be back. After all, AMC said they would be looking for a new home, and I'm happy to report that AMC is in talks with Netflix to bring it back to life!
THR reports that if the deal goes through, AMC would get the first window for the new season, which is very similar to the deal that NBC made with Direct TV for Friday Night Lights. Series stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are under contract for a third season, so you can expect them to return.
The show is based on the Danish series Forbrydelsen (The Crime), The Killing followed Linden and Holder as they investigated the murder of teenager Rosie and all those connected to it. Each episode of the series covered the span of roughly one day. The Rosie Larsen murder was wrapped up at the end of the season two finale. It will be interesting to see what's in store for season three if it goes through!
Are you excited to hear The Killing might come back for a third season?
