AMC and Fox Television Studios have decided to revive The Killing, which was cancelled shortly after its low-rated second season finished. The network and series producer are still working with Netflix to give the series a chance for more viewers.
The Killing was cancelled back in July after a disappointing second season. The show had alienated viewers by not revealing the murderer of the central case during the season one finale and few returned for the second season. At the time, Fox TV said it would find a way to bring fans a third season, though.
Then, suddenly in November, Fox began talking with Netflix and AMC about reviving the show.
Deadline confirmed on Tuesday that the series will be back on AMC, with actors Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman both returning. Veena Sud will also continue as showrunner and executive producer. The producers promise that the third season will include a single case that will be resolved by the end of the 12 episodes. Production is set to start next month in Vancouver.
According to Zap2It, Fox TV and AMC confirmed that the season will pick up a year after the Rosie Larsen case. The season will focus on a runaway girl, whose disappearance links to a past case handled by Sarah Linden (Enos).
The Killing is based on the Danish series Forbrydelsen (The Crime).
