Last July AMC canceled their one-time critically acclaimed series The Killing after the second season finale only to see resurrection rumors reappear in December. Today it became official: AMC has picked up a third season of the rainy mystery, with production kicking off on February 25 in Vancouver.
Showrunner Veena Sud will return, as will stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, for the the 12 episode season, which will tell a self-contained mystery.
According to a press release, this is the plan for season three: 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 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.
