Entries in The Killing (4)


"The Killing" Returns Sunday

AMC TV(NEW YORK) -- First Arrested Development was resurrected, now this weekend, another show comes back from the dead.

AMC cancelled The Killing last summer after two seasons, but earlier this year it announced it was bringing the dark detective drama back for season three.

The new two-hour premiere airs this Sunday night.

Show creator Veena Sud says they learned their lesson and fans won't have to wait until season four to find out the identity of the killer.  “We introduce the case, and we solve it at the end of the season. So you don't have to have seen seasons 1 and 2 to jump in,” says Sud.

Sud also says fans can expect more bodies this time around.

The series stars Joel Kinnaman at Seattle Police Detective Stephen Holder and Mireille Enos as Detective Sarah Linden. This season also features several newcomers, including actor Peter Sarsgaard.

The Killing airs Sunday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on AMC.

AMC's "The Killing" Returns Sunday Night

AMC TV(NEW YORK) -- One week after AMC aired the long-awaited return of Mad Men, the cable network will premiere a new season of another one of its popular dramas on Sunday.

The Killing begins its second season with a two-hour episode beginning 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. If you're unfamiliar with the show, it revolves around the murder of a teenage girl, Rosie Larsen, in Seattle.

There are three storylines at play as the series progresses, all related to the murder case. They focus on Rosie's family, the detectives investigating the case, and a group of politicians involved in a mayoral race.

Some fans were upset after the conclusion of the first season because they hadn't learned who killed Rosie -- the murderer's identity won't be revealed until the end of the new season.

Star Mireille Enos, who plays lead detective Sarah Linden, tells ABC News Radio she was caught off-guard by the uproar, saying, "It didn't cross my mind. Once the Rosie case is solved, a lot of these people go away, and you never get to spend time with them again. So I was very, very surprised."
