No Season 3 for 'The Killing'

July 27, 2012 at 3:50 PM   |   Comments

LOS ANGELES, July 27 (UPI) -- AMC said Friday there will be no third season for its moody Seattle-set murder mystery, "The Killing."

"After much deliberation, we've come to the difficult decision not to renew 'The Killing' for a third season," AMC said in a statement. "AMC is incredibly proud of the show and is fortunate to have worked with such a talented team on this project, from show-runner Veena Sud and our terrific partners at Fox Television Studios to the talented, dedicated crew and exceptional cast."

"Fox Television Studios is extremely proud of The Killing, the extraordinary writing staff and crew, and what we believe is one of the best casts on television. We will proceed to try to find another home for the show," Fox TV Studios in a statement.

Starring Mireille Enos, Billy Campbell and Joel Kinnaman and based on the Danish series "Forbrydelsen," the drama saw a drop in ratings in its second season after fans and critics complained its central homicide wasn't wrapped up at the end of the first season, The Hollywood Reporter said.
