Please renew The Killing for Season 3. It’s clear that Linden wants/needs to solve the crime that landed her in the hospital the first time.
And the revelations about Rosie’s killer and the circumstances involve many people and many emotions.

Don’t cancel The Killing like they did Rubicon, another awesome and intelligent show!

And please make the renewal announcement soon. Many people plan their week around which show is on when, etc. Some of my fellow fans have already written the show off because no announcement has been made.

Thanks for asking for the viewers’ opinions and listening to them.

I love The Killing. I would look at the clock during the show hoping it wouldn’t have moved. Linden and Holder are so great together. They seem so real and filled with such angst. I think Linden’s old case will be the basis for the next season. My Sundays will not be the same if the show was cancelled.

My husband and I never missed an episode of The Killing. In our city it was shown at 9:00 P.M. and then later the same night–that way we could see The Good Wife at 9:00 P.M. and The Killing later. If they show it this summer (reruns) we will surely watch it again–as we would also watch reruns of The Good Wife and Person of Interest – our three favorite shows. We definitely would vote for another season and renewal of The Killing!

This show, IMO, does have just enough to build on for a third season, however, the format used so far, namely taking two seasons (with a full year break in between) on one murder case, has to change.

The Linden and Holder characters made the show watchable. However, there were lots of episodes and side stories that were there to simply fill time (the nuances of the campaign, Mitch leaving and her episode at the hotel), Linden’s son, etc. Maybe two cases per season? Perhaps it can be an X-files type show?

Cancel, please. It was about as padded as January Jones’s fat suit on Mad Men. I missed a couple of episodes and didn’t miss a thing.

LOVE the show. Linden & Holder are the best team ever. So happy there’s some great drama to watch…especially in this time of ‘reality CRAP’. My mom watched it…told my daughter to watch it..who told me to watch it and I told my sister. We all love it. KEEP IT COMMING!
