The show was good, good enough that it managed to survive for a third season even though it was announced as cancelled and an agreement between AMC and Netflix made it come back. But now, there´s the nail in the coffin, as AMC cancels The Killing after a low rated third season finale that only garnered 1.5 million viewers. After all, both AMC and Netflix have bonafide hits of their own to try and salvage this show.
Season three began one year after the close of the “Rosie Larsen” case (the focus of the series’ first two seasons) with Sarah Linden (Enos) no longer working as a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder’s (Kinnaman) search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she’d left behind.
And now, hopefully fans will feel the show got proper closure and not just vanishes in the sands of forgotten and unfinished shows.
