Telemystery: AMC and Netflix Considering a Third Season of The Killing

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

We were enthusiastic fans of AMC's murder mystery series The Killing … until the series' showrunner decided to betray the audience by changing the rules in the middle of the game. We basically lost interest after the first season. When AMC canceled the series at the end of the second season — yes, we did somewhat reluctantly watch it — we had mixed feelings. The cast was first-rate and we were sorry that they had to suffer as a consequence of the arrogance of the showrunner but we were happy that we wouldn't be tempted to watch any more … and ultimately be disappointed again.

Well, the plot, as they say, thickens. Deadline is reporting that AMC is working with Netflix and the series producers to create a third season. The arrangement, if the project moves forward, would have the season "air" first on Netflix and later on AMC. The good news is the principal cast is committed to a third season. The bad — and probably deal-breaking for us — news is that showrunner Veena Sud is still associated with the show. The only way we'd return is if she publicly apologized for the way she handled the first two seasons of the series and then promised to create a positive viewer experience for the third season. Since that's not likely to happen, we simply don't have the time and energy to commit to being deceived again by her, and thus we'll likely give the third season — if it comes to be — a pass.
