AMC renews ‘The Killing’

Series gets new order for 13 episodes

AMC is bringing back serialized freshman drama “The Killing” for a second season.

Series, whose ensemble casts includes Mireille Enos and Billy Campbell, drew 2.7 million viewers for its initial airing in April before settling in at the 2 million mark. Its first-season finale airs Sunday.

“The Killing” will again have a 13-episode order for season two, but airdates have not been determined.

Renewal of the series had been expected (Variety, May 17), though AMC has been tightening greenlights on new scripted programs. “The Killing” joins “The Walking Dead” among 2010-11 premieres to get second-season pickups for AMC.

Based on Danish series “Forbrydelsen,” “The Killing” is exec produced by Veena Sud and Mikkel Bondesen for Fox Television Studios and Fuse Entertainment.

“A lot of loyal fans made a huge investment in this show this season,” AMC senior original programming, production and digital content veep Joel Stillerman said, “and we are thrilled to be able to bring it back next season for all involved.”
