Netflix Posts First Trailer for The Killing: The Final Season Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.24.2014
Premiering in August...
The Killing has led a charmed life as a television series. The AMC show (based off the Danish series Forbrydelsen) built up a huge level of critical regard based on its first season, which it promptly wasted with one of the more disappointing initial season finales that I can remember. That drove people away from the second season, causing AMC to cancel it. However, the network reversed that decision and brought it back for a third season...after which it canceled again for low (but somewhat better) ratings.
Then it brought it back again, announcing that it will air on Netflix. Netflix posted the following teaser on Facebook for the season, calling it The Killing: The Final Season. One can only assume that it will then get a new season, called The Killing: The Final FINAL Season. And so on.
The series will premiere on the service on August 1st.
