AMC Cancels ‘The Killing’

AMC has cancelled “The Killing” after two seasons.

“After much deliberation, we’ve come to the difficult decision not to renew The Killing for a third season,” AMC said in a statement. “AMC is incredibly proud of the show and is fortunate to have worked with such a talented team on this project, from showrunner Veena Sud and our terrific partners at Fox Television Studios to the talented, dedicated crew and exceptional cast.”

But the cancelled series, which starred Mireille Enos, Billy Campbell, and Joel Kinnaman will be shopped to other networks.

Fox Television Studios said in a statement, “Fox Television Studios is extremely proud of The Killing, the extraordinary writing staff and crew, and what we believe is one of the best casts on television. We will proceed to try to find another home for the show.”
