The final season of The Killing will air exclusively on Netflix.
The six episode fourth series finale will be available exclusively on Netflix which has 40 million subscribers worldwide. The Killing, based on the popular Danish crime series Forbydelsen, previously aired on American cable channel AMC but was cancelled earlier this year.
In a new deal with Fox Television Studios, the final series will air on Netflix and the previous three seasons are currently available for catch-up.
“It’s a true testament to ‘The Killing’ creator Veena Sud, and the stellar cast led so compellingly by Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, that fans remained so passionate about the show. We’re gratified that our partners at Netflix recognized this, and are giving us the opportunity to complete the story in a way that will be satisfying to our loyal audience.” – David Madden, Fox Television Studios President
Based on the Danish programme Forbrydelsen, “The Killing” follows various murder investigations led by homicide detectives “Sarah Linden” (Mireille Enos) and “Stephen Holder” (Joel Kinnaman).
Seasons one and two chronicled the “Rosie Larsen case,” with Linden and Holder investigating the murder of a teenage girl.
Picking up one year after the close of that investigation, season three followed the detectives on their search for a runaway girl, leading them to discovery a gruesome string of murders that connected to a previous investigation by Linden.
