The Killing Season 3: Who's Out?

at . Comments

The Killing has been revived by AMC and will be airing new episodes some time in 2013. But not all cast members will be returning to the rainy drama.

Variety confirms that Billy Campbell, for example, will not reprise his role as Darren Richmond, the Seattle city councilman elected mayor on The Killing Season 2 after being paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.

Elsewhere, neither Brent Sexton nor Michelle Forbes - who portrayed the parents of dead girl at the center of the ongoing story - will be back for Season 3.

But the two leads aren't going anywhere. Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are each expected to return, as these Seattle detectives were considered by many to be the only reason to tune in every week.

Great news that this show is coming back - one of the better shows I've seen in a long time. And I agree that the only people guaranteed to return are the two detectives and anyone else who has ties to the next killing.


Sorry to say that the only reason I was watching THE KILLING was for Billy Campbell. I enjoyed the Season 2 finale, but it was a little too slow for me. Without Billy Campbell, not sure I'll have any interest.


OH.MY.GOD. I am thrilled to hear this! I love Holder and Linden and hope they take the relationship between the two even further!


This is great news... I was very disappointed when I heard the show got cancelled and now it's back! I honestly can't wait to see what Holder and Linden are going to get into in season 3.
