The Killing: The Final Season is coming to Netflix’s streaming service later this year.
Fans were thoroughly crushed when they learned hat the folks over at AMC had cancelled the show yet again once the third installment had wrapped up. Since the series would have left a cliffhanger completely unresolved, people who are emotionally invested in The Killing were understandably furious that the cable network has pulled the proverbial plug once again.
Thankfully, the boys and girls at Netflix rescued the The Killing from the land of unresolved plotlines. According to Coming Soon, The Final Season is presently scheduled to hit the company’s streaming service on August 1. This should properly wrap up the story that began with season three.
Check out Netflix’s teaser for The Killing: The Final Season below. The clip only reveals the release date for the new episodes, so don’t worry about stumbling across any spoilers if you’re not completely caught up with season three.
The Killing stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are returning for the final go-around, episodes that should properly wrap up the third season’s storyline. Although the show definitely has its fair share of detractors — many people seem to believe that the series moves way too slow — this writer can’t wait to see what happens next.
Netflix is definitely hoping to keep its subscribers glued to the couch this summer. In addition to The Killing, the streaming service is releasing two hotly-anticipated series over the next few months. Those of us who try their very best to avoid direct sunlight will have plenty of reasons to stay indoors.
The second season of the hit series Orange is the New Black should hit the service on June 6. If you missed the recently-released trailer, then you definitely need to have a look at the clip embedded below. This writer’s excitement is practically boiling over.
If horror is more your thing, then the next installment of the Eli Roth-produced Hemlock Grove should pull you back indoors this summer. All 10 episodes of the next season will arrive on July 11. The Green Inferno director seems to think viewers are going to love what showrunners have put together.
“Netflix has been an incredible partner, and whenever we wanted to take the story in a dangerous direction, they encouraged us to go even further — into a scarier, darker, and sexier place. We guarantee you won’t see anything like this anywhere else on television,” Roth explained.
