To no surprise, AMC has cancelled The Killing after two seasons on the air. The ratings took a sizable dip in year two after the first season didn’t wrap up the ongoing murder mystery. However, The Killing may not be as dead as poor Rosie Larsen.
In a statement, AMC said, “After much deliberation, we’ve come to the difficult decision not to renew The Killing for a third season. 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.”
Fox Television Studios, which produces the series, issued a similar statement but gave some hope for fans who were looking forward to a third season. “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.”
What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that The Killing has been cancelled? Would you be interested in watching a third season? Which characters should be in it?
