THE KILLING Heading Back to AMC for Third Season

Good news, The Killing is headed back to AMC for a third season, according to ComingSoon. Veena Sud is set to return as executive producer, writer and showrunner in the deal that was reached by the network and Fox Television Studios. As part of the deal, actors Mireille Enos (Sarah Linden) and Joel Kinnaman (Stephen Holder) are also returning. The new season will focus on a new case, which will be resolved over the course of 12 episodes. Filming is slated to begin February 25th in Vancouver.

'The Killing' from day one has been a truly original take on the crime drama. Veena Sud and the rest of the talented creative team are hard at work shaping the lives of Linden and Holder, portrayed by the terrific Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman," said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president. "We're so pleased to welcome back 'The Killing' for another season."

Fox TV Studios President, David Madden, said, “We have always believed in 'The Killing' and remain extremely proud of it, which is why we all worked so hard to find a scenario that could give it new life.”

“I couldn’t be happier to know that I will be returning to work with AMC, FTVS and Mireille and Joel on what is and has always been a passion project for me. To the fans that have supported the series, thank you for doing so. My team and I will work hard to deliver the best story that we can for season three,” said Veena Sud.

Here is the synopsis for the new season:

A year after closing the Rosie Larsen case, Sarah Linden is no longer a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder's search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind.

I have been a fan of The Killing since it first aired on April 3, 2011. Are you looking forward to seeing the third season?
