AMC crime drama 'The Killing' isn't dead after all
NEW YORK (AP) - "The Killing" will live another season.
AMC and Fox Television Studios announced Tuesday the return of this crime drama for a third season after months spent in limbo.
The show's stars, Mireille (MEE'ray) Enos and Joel Kinnaman, will be back, as will executive producer Veena Sud. Production resumes Feb. 25 in Vancouver, which substitutes for Seattle, the show's setting. No premiere date was mentioned.
The first two seasons concentrated on the murder case of teenager Rosie Larsen. The 12-episode third season will focus on and solve a new crime.
The show's revival, though surprising to some viewers who had given it up for dead, had been rumored for several weeks.
"The Killing" premiered on the AMC network in April 2011, and during its first two seasons averaged 1.9 million viewers.
