Three months after it finishes airing...
Coming Soon reports that Season 3 of AMC and Fox Television Studios' The Killing will be available exclusively to Netflix streaming members in the US and Canada three months after the season finale airs on AMC. Netflix will be the only subscription TV service for season three of the show. Both complete seasons of the show are now available to watch instantly.
Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix, said: "We're excited to see 'The Killing' back on TV and we're especially proud to bring Season 3 to our members so soon after it premieres on AMC. 'The Killing' is a terrific serialized drama and we know our members love these high-quality shows."
David Madden, president of Fox Television Studios, added: "Our agreement with Netflix played an extremely significant part in the studio's strategy that enabled us to bring 'The Killing'' back for a third season. Our showrunner, Veena Sud, has plunged our principals into new and dangerous worlds, with wicked twists and a climactic end-of-season resolution, and our acclaimed cast, including Mireille Enos Joel Kinnaman and new cast member Peter Sarsgaard, are already thrillingly bringing it to life. We are delighted to be in business with Netflix to deliver Season 3, as well as past seasons of 'The Killing' to a broader audience worldwide."
The series is based on the Danish series Forbrydelsen. Here's a synopsis: Follows various murder investigations led by homicide detectives Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman). After the close of the "Rosie Larsen case," covered over the first two seasons of the series, Season 3 picks up one year later, with Linden no longer a detective. When ex-partner Holder's search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind.
