AMC Cancels The Killing

at . Comments

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.

A Killing Clue?

“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.
