It all comes down to this: Season 4, the final season of the critically acclaimed crime thriller is a six-episode Netflix original that wraps up loose ends and reveals long-buried secrets.
Detectives Linden and Holder return to investigate both a gruesome mass slaying that exposes a dark family history, as well as a mysterious disappearance within the ranks of their own Seattle Police Department.
The fourth and final season of The Killing picks up right after the Season 3 finale.
As Detective Linden (Mireille Enos) and Detective Holder (Joel Kinnaman) struggle to manage the fallout from their rash actions at the end of last season, they are assigned a new case - a picture perfect family is murdered, survived only by the son, Kyle Stansbury (Tyler Ross), who was shot in the head during the massacre.
Joan Allen guest stars this season as Colonel Margaret Rayne, the headmaster of the all-boys military academy where Kyle attends. The new season also stars Gregg Henry, Sterling Beaumon and Levi Meaden.
The Killing is created and executive-produced by Veena Sud. Mikkel Bondesen is executive producer for Fabrik Entertainment. Kristen Campo also serves as co-executive producer for Fabrik. Season 4 is produced by Fox Television Studios for Netflix.
