Netflix Announces Premiere Date for ‘The Killing’ Final Season

The Killing Season 3

Netflix said it will launch the last six episodes of spooky murder-mystery series “The Killing” in all territories Aug. 1.

“The Killing” was canceled by AMC in 2012 after two seasons, but was revived when Netflix teamed with the cabler in a shared-window pact. AMC canceled the show last year after the third season, but Netflix again stepped in to buy a limited-run fourth season from Fox Television Studios.

The first three seasons of “The Killing” are already available for streaming on Netflix.

    Too bad. This show is the best murder mystery show I’ve ever seen. The problem with the lack of viewers i think is that only few people know about it. I have yet to speak to anyone that even knows this show exists. Too bad

    So excited. Love this show!

    • I’m glad about this. I only discovered it in it’s last season. Thought it had a great potential but became tediously slow in plot development. The characters were believable, as were the actors who played them. Great job. I hope the writers & directors find their voice & focus.
