‘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.
