Premiere Dates Set for True Blood Season 6, The Killing Season 3

by at . Comments

Set your summer vacations accordingly, TV Fanatics: a pair of cable dramas have released premiere dates.

True Blood Season 6 will kick off on June 16 at 9 p.m. This season will be comprised of 10 episodes, as opposed to the typical 12, and will revolve in at least some way around the world of politics, as Arliss Howard is on board the Governor of Louisiana.

  • The New Bill
  • Killing Phone Call

The Killing Season 3, meanwhile, will debut with a two-hour episode on June 2.

AMC has made it clear that the new season will center on a case wholly separate from the Rosie Larson murder.

“We learned so much from the first two seasons of The Killing,“ AMC prez Charlie Collier said in a statement. "And are thrilled to be bringing it back with the elements that the fans loved.”
