‘The Killing’ Comes Back to Life on AMC

In a surprise twist worthy of a Scandinavian crime drama, The Killing is coming back to AMC for a third season after all. The cable channel announced over the summer that it’d be axing the mystery series after two seasons. Then Netflix stepped up to possibly revive the show, and revive it it has — but on AMC, not Netflix. The streaming service is chipping in for the licensing cost, and The Killing is now on track to return for a third season in May 2013. More details after the jump.

Last month, AMC Networks has announced that they would not be ordering a third season of the mystery crime drama The Killing. But just like the twists in the series, we were told that it might not be the end. Fox Television, the studio that produces The Killing were set on trying to find another home for the show. I wasn’t hopeful as the ratings numbers were not-so-great near the end, but it seems Fox has found some interested parties.

TV Line has learned that Fox Television Studios is in “early talks” with both DirecTV and Netflix to pick up the series for a third season. Its not clear if they are in talks for a group deal (doubtful) or separate exclusive deals (more likely).

A rep for Netflix declined to comment, while a DirecTV spokesperson said, “We are constantly having conversations about bringing new shows to Audience Network, and we do take a look at everything that is available, but we haven’t made any decisions this summer in regards to new programming.”

I’m sure we’ll find out the fate of the series sometime in the next month.
