AMC Executes ‘The Killing’ After Two Seasons

The axe has fallen on the U.S. remake of THE KILLING. The first season, based on the Dutch hit series, was a huge ratings hit when it aired in 2011 but was also slammed for the shows decision not to finalise the major storyline by keeping the killers identity a secret. People need closure apparently. When season two aired this year it simply didn’t recover or sustain the ratings that it established in season one.

The show will be shopped around to other networks to continue its run – but my gut tells me it’s all over red rover for THE KILLING
