The third season of AMC’s The Killing is scheduled to premiere this summer.
Although the series was canceled after season two, the show’s continued popularity on Netflix prompted the network to give it another shot. Fans of the drama can expect new episodes to show up on the cable network this June.
The new season of The Killing will find stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman reprising their roles as Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder, respectively.
Enos and Kinnaman will be joined in season three by Peter Sarsgaard, Elias Koteas, and Amy Seimetz. The show will unfold over the course of 10 episodes, culminating in an epic two-hour finale. In other words, you won’t have to wait until season four to see how things work out.
Sarah Linden is no longer a detective when season three begins. However, Holder’s investigation into a string of murders pulls her back in when its discovered they are linked to a previous case.
It was originally reported that Netflix would debut the new season exclusively on its streaming service. However, it was later revealed that The Killing would return to AMC for its initial run. While Netflix won’t get the show right out of the box, it will have exclusive rights to stream the season later this year.
Show developer Veena Sud is no doubt excited about the show’s return to the airwaves.
“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,” Sud explained.
The showrunner added, “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.”
The Killing will return to AMC on June 2. The show will become available on Netflix three months after the season finale airs. Are you looking forward to the new episodes?
