AMC, Netflix Close to Bringing 'The Killing' Back From the Dead

The KillingFans of AMC's The Killing may soon have cause to celebrate...

It's not often that a canceled series comes back from the dead months later, but it looks as though AMC's The Killing may indeed be coming back for a third season. When AMC canceled the crime drama a few months ago, the studio pursued other avenues to keep the show alive and back in August we learned that Netflix was interested in bringing the series back to life. Nearly three months later, Deadline reports that a deal is nearing its final stages.

As part of the deal, AMC would have the first shot at airing all the new episodes before it becomes available on Netflix (exclusively). The two parties would share in the production costs. A similar deal was made when DirecTV swooped in and saved Friday Night Lights from cancellation, except that NBC did not get the first window.

The Killing started off strong in the first season, but when Rosie Larsen's killer was not revealed at the end of the season, many fans were put off and gave up on the show. The big reveal came at the end of season two, with a major twist nobody saw coming. Will season three draw in those fans who abandoned the show? Stay tuned; if all goes well, we may soon find out...
