The drama will return for a shortened final season.
November 15, 2013
The Killing is being brought back from the dead - again. For the second time, the show is being "un-cancelled", but not by original network AMC. This latest resurrection come by way of Netflix, who worked out a deal for one final season of the crime drama that will consist of a shortened six episode run.
Stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman will return for The Killing's final bow, which is set to begin production early next year. Although no launch date has been set, Netflix plans to roll out the last season simultaneously across all its global territories.
UPDATE: The final season of The Killing premieres on Netflix on August 1, 2014.

Love this show. Often times character driven shows are better than plot driven. This one actually has both. If you think it is boring, sorry the can't all be formulaic ADD driven Jerry Bruckheimer crap. If your worst critique of the show is too much rain (last season has none so far), or it's depressing, then just shut up and go watch the crap on CBS. I guess the movie Seven was horrible as well. This show has got to be the most unfairly criticized show in TV history.

I stumbled upon this show on Netflix. At first I wasn't sure if it would pick up (The characters are a bit unusual), however I found myself hooked and watching every episode through season 3. I'm happy to see that Netflix will do a final season. If it's done in keeping with the first three seasons, it should be very good.
Kudos to Netflix!

LOVE this show. Would gladly watch it over the renewed "The Following". It is a bit dark but the writers do a great job keeping it clean, it could get raunchy if the story lines were in the wrong hands. Love it!!!!

I love the show. Sure it's not an action adventure but the characters are great and it's thrillingly dark.

I tried to watch the first couple episodes on Netflix, because I heard they picked it up. But it was soooooooo boring! Does it REALLY get better??

The killing first season was very good the last season with all the freaky characters was absolute garbage.

So happy ...love the chemistry between the two detectives ..love the writing ...love the show ...I don't know why there can't be more series ... each season could deal with a different situation ... this means I have to get net flicks now.

...because Netflix like boring dramas set in a location that calls for overcast and rain every single scene of a show. That way not only is the storyline depressing, but the entire atmosphere is. Seriously, those watching this show should try and cheer up. It'll cause suicide.. just like Seattle does.
