The Killing USA cancelled (again)
AMC's The Killing will not be returning for season four. For definite this time...
AMC's The Killing already returned from the dead once, arriving on screen for season three despite having been cancelled at the end of its second run, but it won't be able to pull the same trick twice. After dwindling ratings, AMC has finally called time on the remake detective series, confirming that season three will be its final bow.
Largely positive reviews at the top end of season three weren't enough to save the show, which attracted an audience of only 1.5 million during its finale, barely higher than the number who tuned in for its season two send-off.
Season three of the AMC show is soon to be available on US Netflix for those who missed it during broadcast.
