Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.04.2014
The Killing creator Veena Sud spoke with TV Line about the show's final season, which will premiere on August 1st on Netflix. Check out the highlights:
On being able to use harsher language: "We can curse now. All of us were ecstatic because, in this world, someone like Holder would say the F-bomb quite a lot, which he does this season… Joel, especially, was very happy about that."
On the episodes running longer: "[The] great joy of Netlix is there are no commercials. In other words, the show's relatively short six-episode season will actually have a running time closer to eight. We have, literally, over 15 [additional] minutes per episode. Each episode is jam-packed with story. It's unrelenting. We go all the way up to the 55-59 mark in every episode. The DNA of the show is the same. but it's gotten richer and deeper because of not having these restrictions."
