Netflix for the win again! The online streaming platform has taken on the cult crime show, The Killing, for a fourth and final season. After the show's first cancelation, Netflix helped keep it afloat for a third season on AMC. Things, however, didn't fare well and it was eventually canceled early this September. Luckily, Netflix won't leave fans hanging as to the fate of Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder, the largely underrated Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman.
"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," Fox Television Studios president David Madden said in a statement. The Killing, if you aren't familiar, is a crime drama following two homicide detectives bent on solving hefty murder mysteries (the first two seasons, for context, focused on the murder of a local Seattle teenager).
Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix, said: "We are looking forward to offering fans — both existing and new — a series that we know is perfectly suited for on-demand viewing." No word as to when the series will officially air, but, in lieu of House of Cards, Arrested Development, and Orange is The New Black, expect it to be another win for Netflix. We'll be looking out for Enos and Kinnaman at next year's Emmys. (Huffington Post)
