AMC Cancels The Killing Again
AMC’s crime drama The Killing, starring Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, has been canceled for a second time since the show’s inception in 2011.
The show was canceled for the first time after its second season suffered poor ratings. AMC announced the following summer that it would be canceling the show. However, despite the cancellation, producers at Fox Television Studios said that it would continue look for new broadcast partners to take on the series.
Fox announced in early 2013 The Killing would return and that the studio had made a deal with AMC and Netflix. Unfortunately, the third season failed to do any better than the second and Fox Television Studios made the decision to drop the show for a second time.
AMC said in a statement Tuesday night “We have made the difficult decision not to move forward with a fourth season of The Killing. We want to thank our great partners at Fox Television Studios, creator Veena Sud, an extraordinary cast and the dedicated fans who watched.”
The Killing is one of several upcoming AMC shows to come to an end. Breaking Bad is currently in its fifth and final season, while AMC’s other popular series Mad Men is said to have its final season in 2014.
