The Killing is an all new series on AMC, which by the way, is FAST becoming my new favorite channel. I’ve recently been introduced to this show and I have subsequently fallen in love with the series. And now, I find myself walking around all day wondering…..
Who Killed Rosie Larson?
ABOUT THE SHOW
The Killing tells the story of the murder of a young girl in Seattle and the subsequent police investigation. The show ties together three distinct stories around a single murder including the detectives assigned to the case, the victim’s grieving family, and the suspects. Set in Seattle, the story also explores local politics as it follows politicians connected to the case. As the series unfolds, it becomes clear that there are no accidents; everyone has a secret, and while the characters think they’ve moved on, their past isn’t done with them.
This is a very intriguing show that constant leaves you guessing and wondering. It’s a true whodunit with crazy twists and all of those crazy twists are completely plausible. The first season moves a little slower than I’m used to, but that’s only because the characters are so well developed. The backstories, what motivates them, and watching everything slowly unfold has been nothing short of fascinating!
Season 1 & 2 are connected completely. And you will NEVER see the season 2 finale coming. NEVER. Season three sort of stands on it’s own, but I don’t recommend watching it without watching 1 & 2 first. And season 4 ties all seasons together, perfectly. They truly wrapped up the series as a whole, properly.
The Killing is an American crime drama television series that premiered on April 3, 2011, on AMC, based on the Danish television series Forbrydelsen (The Crime). The American version was developed by Veena Sud and produced by Fox Television Studios and Fuse Entertainment. Set in Seattle, Washington, the series follows the various murder investigations by homicide detectives Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman).
AMC announced the series’ cancellation in July 2012, but picked it up for a third season after a renegotiation with Fox Television Studios and Netflix. The Killing was again cancelled by AMC in September 2013, but Netflix announced in November 2013 that it had ordered a fourth season consisting of six episodes to conclude the series. The complete fourth season was released on Netflix in all territories on August 1, 2014.
