Very disappointing news that AMC have once again decided to cancel The Killing. We’ll no longer get to see Linden in those sweaters or Holder in his grey hoodie.
Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman have played the part of Linden and Holder for the last time according to a statement released by the network.
“We have made the difficult decision not to move forward with a fourth season of The Killing. We want to thank our great partners at Fox Television Studios, creator Veena Sud, an extraordinary cast and the dedicated fans who watched.”
This is very sad news for fans of the show, who were hopeful for a fourth installment.
Of course, Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are making the move into big time movies now. Enos having recently starred opposite Brad Pitt in World War Z and Kinnaman will soon be seen in the remake of RoboCop.
Could this have been part of the decision not to renew the show? Was it simply a case of the main stars not being available (or not wanting to) make another season? This is just speculation of course.
I was a huge fan of the Killing and am sad that we won’t be getting another chapter.
The decision has been reversed in the past, so why not again? Maybe another network will pick it up?
Maybe if enough fans write in to AMC something can be done about it?
I remember fans of the TV Show Jericho started sending nuts to CBS. They received over 8 million nuts! This prompted CBS to order seven additional episode of the show. Maybe we, as fans, should do something similar?
