"The Killing" has been revived. Again. A final six-episode season is coming to Netflix.
The show lasted for two seasons on AMC before getting canceled. Then, it was revived for a third season, only to be canceled -- again -- by AMC. The show's third season was brought about by a deal between the studio and Netflix, but Season 4 will live solely on Netflix.
Series stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman will return.
“The rich, serialized storytelling in ‘The Killing’ thrives on Netflix, and we believe that it is only fitting to give Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder a proper send off," Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix, said in a statement. "We are looking forward to offering fans -- both existing and new -- a series that we know is perfectly suited for on-demand viewing."
Creator Veena Sud is also on board the final season.
"It's a true testament to 'The Killing' creator Veena Sud, and the stellar cast led so compellingly by Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, that fans remained so passionate about the show. We’re gratified that our partners at Netflix recognized this, and are giving us the opportunity to complete the story in a way that will be satisfying to our loyal audience," David Madden, president, Fox Television Studios, said in a statement.
No word on when the new season will bow.
"The Killing" Seasons 1-3 are streaming on Netflix.
