On this week’s Season 2 finale of “The Killing,” we finally found out who killed Rosie Larsen — but was it too late for viewers? After the Season 1 finale, there was certainly some backlash from an audience that expected answers and didn’t get any. By the time the murderer was revealed, viewership had plummeted. Though a new mystery did emerge in the finale, AMC has yet to announce a potential Season 3.
Variety reports that AMC is still debating the fate of the murder mystery series. With viewership at about 1.5 million for the Season 2 finale, “The Killing” rates considerably lower than AMC’s other original series including “Mad Men” and “Hell on Wheels.” No decisions have been made at the network level.
Apparently, if the series does return for a third season, fans can expect Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman to return — along with, potentially, Billy Campbell — but for much of the rest of the cast to be replaced as new players enter the mystery.
AMC doesn’t have to make a call until the end of the year, when Enos’ and Kinnaman’s holding deals will expire. Do you think they should bring the show back? Drop us a line in the comments section below!
