Season three will kick off at 8pm with a two-hour episode. According to the network, this new season will focus on a case that will be solved over a 10 episode story arc.
“We learned so much from the first two seasons of The Killing and are thrilled to be bringing it back with the elements that the fans loved,” stated Charlie Collier, president and general manager, AMC. “Veena’s captivating storytelling along with the performances of Joel and Mireille, and the rest of the exemplary cast, will remind audiences of what they loved about the series and provide a season of suspenseful television.”
President of Fox Television Studios David Madden said, “From the beginning, Veena Sud has invested The Killing with some of the richest characters on television, testing and sometimes trampling the traditions of the television procedural — and we’re indebted to AMC for the opportunity to present a third season. We’re particularly excited by the new moves of our returning leads, ‘Sarah’ and ‘Holder,’ brought to life so beautifully by Mireille and Joel, as well as the addition to our stellar cast of Peter Sarsgaard in his television series debut, the brilliant Elias Koteas and Amy Seimetz, and a cluster of newcomers whom we hope will dazzle the audience as this new season unfolds.”
The Plot of Season 3:
Season 3 begins one year after the close of the “Rosie Larsen” case (the focus of the series’ first two seasons) with Sarah Linden (Enos) no longer working as a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder’s (Kinnaman) search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she’d left behind.
