Mireille Enos has heard your complaints about "The Killing" Seasons 1 and 2 and agrees with them.
"The original Danish show solved the Rosie Larsen case in 20 episodes, and we did it in 26," Enos told New York Times. "I actually think it was too long. American audiences like things to move more quickly. Now we’re learning, and Season 3 is very strong."
"The Killing" was criticized for not solving the Rosie Larsen murder in Season 1. When it was renewed for Season 2, executive producer Veena Sud said the show will solve the murder by the end of Season 2. Sud said the intention was not to rile fans.
"Our intent was not to mislead or betray," Sud told Written By magazine. "We talked about the fans, and their passion, and all of the stuff that was being said on the internet. But the bottom line is, we close the door and we're a bunch of people in the room, and our job was, and continues to be, to tell the story that feels right by us."
"The Killing" was canceled after Season 2 after ratings sank. However, AMC revived the crime drama for a third season. "'The Killing' from day one has been a truly original take on the crime drama. Veena Sud and the rest of the talented creative team are hard at work shaping the lives of Linden and Holder, portrayed by the terrific Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman," Charlie Collier, AMC's president, said in a statement. "We're so pleased to welcome back 'The Killing' for another season."
As part of the Season 3 renewal, "The Killing" Season 3 will head to Netflix shortly after it finishes its AMC run. Sud told EW the Season 3 mystery won't stretch over seasons. “In Season 3, the story lends itself to one season,” she said. “We’re going to solve it at the end.”
