5. Joel Kinnaman.
The dark and lanky Swedish-American actor (who stars in the upcoming Robocop
remake) seems as comfortable inhabiting the wise-cracking, street
smart, recovering addict detective Stephen Holder as his character does
in his XXL hoodies. And the chemistry he has with Enos is riveting. One New York Times
commenter wrote, "I'd like to see them resurrect the series with just
Holder & Linden but doing something else, maybe opening a pet store
together. They were the reasons I tuned in."
Much as I'd like to see them go to S4, I'd look forward to Kinnaman/Enos future projects.

But now that it has been cancelled twice, I do not want to see the actors kept in renewal limbo and low ratings. Time to move on.

Two months after the crime drama’s second cancelation, The Killing
is being resurrected for a fourth season at Netflix. The streaming
service, which stepped up to make the last revival feasible, will air
six episodes, which will be billed as the series’ “final season.” AMC,
which developed and aired the show for its first three seasons, will
have no part in the latest move for the Fox Television Studios series.
The series' stars Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos will return,
with the show set to explore a new case. The series' writing staff and
crew will return as well, with production set to begin in Canada in
February. Though creator Veena Sud’s
WME agents and the studio began exploring its options immediately
following the series’ September cancelation, conversations with Netflix
began in earnest about a month ago. As part of the unprecedented deal,
the series’ final installment will bow simultaneously across Netflix’s
“The rich, serialized storytelling in The Killing thrives on Netflix, and we believe that it is only fitting to give Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder a proper send off,” Cindy Holland,
vice president of original content for Netflix, said in a statement.
“We are looking forward to offering fans - both existing and new - a
series that we know is perfectly suited for on-demand viewing.”
Added Fox TV Studios president David Madden: “It’s a true testament to The Killing
creator Veena Sud, and the stellar cast led so compellingly by Mireille
Enos and Joel Kinnaman, that fans remained so passionate about the
show. We’re gratified that our partners at Netflix recognized this, and
are giving us the opportunity to complete the story in a way that will
be satisfying to our loyal audience."
The Killing's trajectory has quickly become the stuff of TV
legend. It was first canceled in July 2012 after two acclaimed seasons
on AMC. The network called its decision to pull the plug a “difficult”
one at the time, but the news came as little surprise given the series’
considerable ratings tumble coupled with the critical beating it took
when the first season finale failed to reveal a critical plot point: who
killed Rosie Larsen.
Then, nearly a year later, Fox TV Studios announced that the series, based on Danish series Forbrydelsen,
would return after all, thanks to a unique deal with AMC and Netflix.
The latter, which had built a sizable audience for the series’ first two
seasons on its service, would stream the third season 90 days after the
finale aired on the cable network. In that arrangement, the studio was
able to offset AMC's reduced license fee with the premium that Netflix
agreed to pay to shrink the window from about a year to three months.
Killing's most recent third season opened to a steady 1.8
million viewers and generally positive reviews in June, but it saw its
ratings dip over the course of the self-contained 12 episodes. It
wrapped with 1.5 million viewers, making the season relatively flat year
over year. It was not enough to garner a fourth season renewal, and AMC
released another statement in which it announced it would be making the
"difficult decision" to end the series' run.
The Killing was AMC’s real zombie show.
Netflix has struck a deal with Fox Television Studios to resurrect the rainy crime drama for a fourth season.
That’s right: The Killing, a show that’s been canceled twice, is coming back to life for a second time.
AMC axed The Killing after its second season last year, only
to pick it up again after talks between the studio and Netflix sparked
interest in another round. The third season aired this summer on AMC to
fairly modest ratings (ending with 1.5 million viewers). In September,
AMC cancelled the increasingly ironically titled The Killing — again.

But apparently those cable executives didn’t execute a proper double-tap to the head.
Because Netflix is bringing The Killing back with a
six-episode fourth and final season. Stars Mireille Enos and Joel
Kinnaman are on board, and so is showrunner Veena Sud.
“The rich, serialized storytelling in The Killing thrives on
Netflix, and we believe that it is only fitting to give Sarah Linden
(Enos) and Stephen Holder (Kinnaman) a proper send off,” said Cindy
Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix. “We are looking
forward to offering fans — both existing and new — a series that we
know is perfectly suited for on-demand viewing.”
Netflix previously revived Fox’s cult favorite Arrested Development
for a 4th season, and is often a company that studios call when their
shows are axed to see if there’s any interest. The move could be a smart
play for Netflix since it gives the company an exclusive lock on the
conclusion of the show without a big episode commitment (AMC is not part
of the deal). Whenever viewers stream The Killing for years to
come, if they want to see how the series concludes, they’ll have to
watch it on Netflix (or a company that makes a distribution deal with
Unless … of course … this is not REALLY the end of The Killing.
A Netflix rep assures this order will conclude of the show, but unless
the final shot of season 4 is Linden and Holder skewered on top of the
Space Needle, there’s always going to be a few fans wondering if The Killing could rise again, rainier and more murderous than ever.
