‘The Killing’ Season 4 Trailer on Netflix Previews Mystery Series Finale

Netflix is giving fans of “The Killing” a first look at the fourth — and final — season of the murder-mystery series, which will hit the streaming service worldwide Aug. 1.

The six-episode final season picks up after the season three finale, with Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) and Detective Holder (Joel Kinnaman) assigned a new case: a seemingly picture-perfect family is murdered, survived only by the son, Kyle Stansbury (Tyler Ross), who was shot in the head during the massacre.

Joan Allen guest stars this season as Col. Margaret Rayne, headmaster of the all-boys military academy Kyle attends. The new season also stars Gregg Henry, Sterling Beaumon and Levi Meaden.

“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 currently available for streaming on Netflix. The series is created and executive-produced by Veena Sud. Mikkel Bondesen is executive producer for Fabrik Entertainment. Kristen Campo also serves as co-executive producer for Fabrik. “The Killing” is produced by Fox Television Studios for Netflix.

    hill street blues was my first love affair in crime series,then came along homicide life on the streets and I was once again swept up and off my feet,But now Im married too The Killing.I would have to say that I dont want to go through the pain of seeing a show such as The Killing walk out of my life. I will be so hoping and praying that a season 5 will happen.

    My family and I watched all three seasons during our fourth of July holiday. We were locked in our seats with our eyes glued to the screen. This binge was definitely worth the trade of traveling. The people who are in control of continuing this series beyond four seasons, would be complete Idiots if they choose not to do so. C’mon. Do the right thing.

    Thank you Netflix for reviving such an amazing show. There are only a few great shows nowadays that are worth air time and any attention from viewers. The Killing is one of the shows to hold a spot among the greatest creations in entertainment. PLEASE keep this show going beyond 12 seasons!!!! Please also bring back Arrested Development. These shows were eliminated too soon, but are differently worth my vote to return and continue for decades to come.

    I am so thrilled and absolutely excited to be able to relax and laugh to more of Holder’s funny lines. He cracks me up and Linden’s drive and natural nack for catching the bad guy. Thank you Netflix. I am so glade we just cancelled our extremely high cable bill and solely enjoy Netflix now. Thank you again Netflix for bringing this amazing series back to life. Please do an amazing job!!

    Kudos to Netflix for keeping this amazing series going. I live in the PNW and appreciate the attention to detail given to this beautiful and yes, dark and stormy part of the country. The character development is suberb, especially Holder. It’s a realistic,believeable crime drama. I was totally engaged, sitting on the edge of my couch, gasping with surprise at the dramatic twists and turns. Loved it. Give me more!

    OMG. I am addicted to this show….just to find out it’s already been canceled? A real shame that the truly engaging and cerebral is thrown out with the bath water whilst the dumbed – down and predictable survives… season after season. I mean, who is Wolf blo*ing? Here, the the writing is phenomenal, the acting is superb, (and yes, believable) the direction is mind blowingly detailed, and the editing is truly amazing! (Yes, I seek out inconsistencies in both story and scenes..and no, I have zero association w the industry.. this show is spot on and pure quality.) These story lines are awesome. I LOVE it when I’m thrown for a loop…NO OTHER show has me sitting on the edge of my seat as I watch OR has me longing to get home from work to watch the next episode!! But yeah, cancel it. Idiots.
