Season 3

The Killing is an American crime drama television series based on the Danish television series Forbrydelsen, developed by Veena Sud and produced by Fox Television Studios and Fuse Entertainment and set in Seattle, Washington, which follows the investigation into the murder of a teenager (Seasons 1-2) and a serial killer (Season 3).

The series aired in the USA on AMC from 3 April, 2011 to 4 August, 2013. There are 38 hour-long episodes in three seasons.

The Killing premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Series channel on Friday 9 September 2011, at 21h30. It moved to M-Net Series Showcase (simulcast in HD) when the former channel became defunct in July 2013. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 3 premiered on M-Net Series Showcase on Tuesday 24 September 2013, at 21h30. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are 12 episodes in the third and final season.

Season 3

Season three of The Killing focuses on a new case which is resolved over the course of 12 episodes.

The season begins one year after the close of the Rosie Larsen case (the focus of The Killing's first two seasons), with Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) no longer working as a Seattle homicide detective.

But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder's (Joel Kinnaman) search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that may connect to a previous murder investigated by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind.

The new season also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Elias Koteas and Amy Seimetz.

Filmed in Vancouver, The Killing is produced by Fox Television Studios and executive produced by series creator Veena Sud, Mikkel Bondesen (for Fabrik Entertainment), Dawn Prestwich, and Nicole Yorkin. Kristen Campo and Ron French serve as co-executive producers.
