AMC announced today The Killing is not being renewed. Did they conclude the story with the second season? I've got both recorded but haven't watched yet. If season 2 ended without a resolution to the story I probably won't ever bother.


It ends with everything pretty wrapped up... it's definitely worth it.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Yes, it concluded the story arc making the two seasons a complete story that wrapped things up pretty well.

It's too bad they didn't decide to remake the 10-episode "Series 2" that aired in Denmark. It takes place 2 years after the Rosie Larsen case. I was looking forward to AMC turning that into a single-season remake for American viewers. They are also currently filming a "Series 3" in Denmark, scheduled to air this fall.

Here's what Wikipedia has to say about Series 2:

Ten days after a female lawyer, Anne Dragsholm, has been found murdered, the head of the homicide department in Copenhagen, Lennart Brix, realises that his group is faced with a case much more complicated than it seemed at first. So, desperate for a breakthrough, he sends DI Ulrik Strange to approach former DI Sarah Lund and ask her to have a look at the case. Lund, who was demoted after the Nanna Birk Larsen case in the first series and currently works as a passport controller in Gedser in southern Denmark, is not interested at first, but quickly changes her mind, suspecting that the murder is not as straightforward as it seems, despite the forced confession of Dragsholm's husband.

[more]


Looks the BBC aired both original Danish series, presumably with subtitiles.

Very disappointed!!!

I thought both seasons were excellent and was looking forward to a new story/season. It's a shame most of the country would rather watch the garbage excuse for programming that gets highest ratings. Fail :(

Thanks!

I'll move season 2 to the archive with season 1 and watch it eventually. I need to retire again, I'm getting too far behind on all my TV viewing. ;)

I am not surprised. They really alienated a lot of their season one audience with inappropriate and misleading promotion. many of us, I included, believed that we would know who Rosie's killer was by the end of the first season. You will never win ratings points by insulting and disrespecting your viewers. The ratings reflect this.

If they had not misled the viewers, it would not have been a problem. It was a very good concept, and deserved to be seen. The whole incident was very unfortunate.

If this had been one of the major network, they would have stretch it out to five years and cancel after two weeks.

I had trouble getting back into The Killing, and always wondered if it was because in the back of my mind was the thought we'd be left hanging so to speak.

I am glad I finished it, though, and sorry to see there's no more.

My program guide says that after all this tme, the pilot episode is being reshown on AMC on Sunday the 6th, at 5:00AM Pacific time. Does that imply that they will be showing the whole series again?

At the risk of being too silly, I wonder if there will be a break between the two halves of season one? :D

Good news. I guess Season 3 here will be based on the original Danish 10-episode "Series 2", about a crime that takes place two years later than Rosie's murder investigation.

According to Wikipedia, there's also a 10-episode "Series 3" (the series finale) to look forward to. Hopefully we'll see that one as well.

The original Danish series with subtitles was a huge hit in the UK. Would love to see BBCA air it here in the US. The pace of The Killing probably makes it easy to watch and read the captions.

We watched the original Swedish Girl With The Dragon Tatoo trilogy with subs, and really enjoyed it.
