They probably should’ve solved the Laura Palmer murder a lot sooner; viewers got bored.
Wait.. wrong show.
AMC may have given their two-hander crime series “The Killing” a second lease of life – after axing it the first time after low ratings, only to bring it back, to many nods of approval from critics and viewers, for a third season – but the network isn’t in the business of handing out pity votes anymore it seems.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series starring Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos has been canceled. The third season – the one you guys petitioned them to do – will be the series’ last.
“Fox Television Studios is extremely proud of all three seasons of The Killing. We’re especially gratified to have orchestrated a unique deal with AMC for season three that included a bold partnership with Netflix,” FTVS said in a statement. “While we would have loved to produce a fourth season for AMC, FTVS is immensely grateful to everyone involved with this moving series: our brilliant cast, led by Mireille Enos, Joel Kinnaman and season three’s Peter Sarsgaard, our stellar executive producer, Veena Sud, a remarkable writing and producing team, and a tireless, dedicated crew. Most of all, FTVS thanks the terrific fans of The Killing, who communicated their appreciation for the show throughout its run.”
It’s unlikely that the show’s core cast will have time to drop dear ducts; Kinnaman and Enos are both carving out promising big-screen careers for themselves, him as the new ‘RoboCop’, and she as a female lead in such blockbusters as “World War Z”.
