Deal To Resurrect 'The Killing' ????? Maybe...

AMC And Netflix Near Deal To Resurrect ‘The Killing’

EXCLUSIVE: It looks like The Killing will be coming back for a third season after all. Two and a half months after AMC opted not to renew the mystery drama for a third season, I hear the cable network is close to a deal to bring the show back, this time in tandem with streaming giant Netflix. I hear AMC would get first window.

A deal, which is still being hammered out, would be the culmination of a relentless effort by The Killing producer Fox TV Studios to keep the series alive. When The Killing‘s cancellation was announced, the studio vowed to “try to find another home for the show” and talked with a number of potential buyers before zeroing in on Netflix. The talks, which were touch and go for awhile, subsequently brought AMC back into the equation. I hear a strong third-season pitch by series’ developer/executive producer Veena Sud helped get the modestly-rated drama back on the cable network which will now share its The Killing-associated costs with Netflix. Fox TV Studios already had the cast, including breakout stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, locked in for Season 3, which also made a renewal an easier proposition. I hear feelers are now being sent out to key behind-the-scene auspices to return. AMC, Netflix and FtvS declined comment.

Personally, I have a love/hate opinion of this show.

1. I thought it was terrific in season 1, but there was a disconnect to season 2...

Nonethless, I like both lead actors and would watch if they bring it back. It certainly beats much of the tv on networks today.

5. AMC Un-Cancels ‘The Killing’; Season 3 Premieres in May....

Mere months after AMC announced that season 3 of the rain-soaked murder mystery The Killing would not happen, the network has apparently had a change of heart. Reports are now stating the network is in the process of un-canceling the program with the intention of having new episodes ready by May of next year.

This news should make you happy!

10. I think it would be helpful if she....

wrapped up each case in a timely manner and then moved on to the next. I hope she learned her lesson because this is a great show with a fantastic lead cast.

13. Yes!!....I LOVED that show!

Mr. Whathehell and I really loved that show. I saw both seasons and

it was smarter and more nuanced, especially in terms of character,

than any tv show I've seen in twenty years!
