Following a critically-lambasted first season finale and a lackluster second season that saw a precipitous drop in the ratings, AMC has taken The Killing off life support.
The network announced today that it has canceled the dark drama.
“After much deliberation, we’ve come to the difficult decision not to renew The Killing for a third season," said the network in a statement. "AMC is incredibly proud of the show and is fortunate to have worked with such a talented team on this project, from showrunner Veena Sud and our terrific partners at Fox Television Studios to the talented, dedicated crew and exceptional cast.”
Hey, there is a bright side, fans: at least you finally know who killed Rosie Larsen.
