The Killing Season 3

It is impossible to kill The Killing. At the end of its third season, AMC canceled it for the second time. Now Netflix has revived the drama for a six episode fourth season. It's being billed as the show's final season, but given that it's already survived being canceled twice, who knows?

    Cool. I knew this would happen.

    Awesome! I got Netflix for my son and now we will both use it! I know- once I find time I plan to catch Orange…. as well as House of Cards…. in the meantime golden age of tv with Boardwalk, Anarchy, Days of Our Lives (nope not kidding there!) among others…..

    Might actually pay to see it! S3 was great and had a fantastic ending.

  • PurpleDrazi

    Kind of funny that a show called The Killing can’t seem to be killed. :-)

  • merrranga

    the drama of this show being murdered is better than any murder mystery they had on the show.

    i can’t wait for the season 5 when it comes back as a 4 issue comic book and season 6 as a series of bus ads!

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! So happy! What a great present for my Friday!!! :)

    Hooray..maybe they can find a way to film a scene or 2 in the daylight..and just think how much better we could hear them if they provided a mic and din’t whisper all the time. I like the show, really, but it is the hardest show to pay attention to and follow..no light and no sound will do that..ya know.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    Well I’ll be damned. This show just won’t die! Not that I want it to, it’s just impressive.

    @Steve A
    I think Family Guy was only cancelled once.

  • Dawn

    Great news!

  • Oliver

    Family Guy was cancelled twice. It was briefly cancelled between its second and third seasons.

  • Feedback

    You must feel really proud of yourself making the same joke that’s in the first sentence of the article.

    The Killling…remains the most ironically title TV series EVER!

  • AriesMatt

    This is great news. I’m one of the few who stuck with the series after many viewers jumped ship after Season 1. IMO, Season 3 was the strongest. I’m also betting this show does really well on Netflix, which would explain why they want to continue it.

  • Andies

    LOL… great news… Say what you want but The Killing has a strong fanbase.. not a big one but a strong one..

    Hell yeah!!! i really didn’t expect this. i lost all hope for this series as soon as it was canceled the second time after the 3rd season. i really thought netflix picking this show up was a long shot. people must be watching it a lot on netflix. maybe they’ll decide to continue the show, but model it after sherlock. instead of have a 13 episode season every year, they could release limited shorter seasons every 2yrs, but if none of that happens i hope they release the complete series on blu ray.

  • william

    oh yeah i forgot, and since the killing is being renewed for 6 episodes it will surpass the original danish series it was based off of in total episodes.
