'The Killing' Lives On At AMC


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.

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.
