‘The Killing’: Revived By Netflix For A Final Fourth Season

THE-KILLING-NETFLIX

Netflix revives “The Killing.”

“The Killing,” a show canceled twice by AMC, is coming back for a fourth season on Netflix. The streaming giant has picked up the series for a six-episode fourth and final season, with stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman and showrunner Veena Sud.

“The rich, serialized storytelling in “The Killing” thrives on Netflix, and we believe that it is only fitting to give Sarah Linden (Enos) and Stephen Holder (Kinnaman) a proper send off,” said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix. “We are looking forward to offering fans — both existing and new — a series that we know is perfectly suited for on-demand viewing.”

AMC axed “The Killing” after its second season last year, only to renew the show for a third season. The third season aired this summer on AMC to humble ratings.
