Netflix revives The Killing for a short final season

Much like detective Linden, Netflix (s NFLX) just can’t let go: The streaming service just revealed that it has renewed crime drama The Killing for a final, six-episode fourth season. This is actually the second time for Netflix to save The Killing: AMC canceled the show after season two in 2012, but Netflix stepped in and partnered with the network for a third season that didn’t get any better ratings, prompting AMC once again to axe the show this year. However, all three seasons remain available on Netflix, where they have apparently performing well enough to warrant the investment. There’s no word yet on when the fourth season will come to Netflix, but it will once again be released in bulk, and available to all Netflix subscribers worldwide.

  1. One of my very favorites. No doubt it didn’t hit pop charts because of depressing truths about homeless kids and cop bureaucrats. But, the writing, direction, plot and production values were superb.

    Not a Netflix subscriber; so, I imagine I’ll either do the 1-month free trial to stream the final 6 or wait for Amazon Prime.

    Really looking forward to learning how they resolve that season 3 finale.
