AMC has made it official: The Killing Season 3 is a go.

Look for Season 3 to pick up a year after the solving of the Rosie Larsen case, with Linden no longer a detective… until her ex-partner stumbles upon a string of murders and draws her back into the fold.

Among those NOT returning? Billy Campbell as Mayor Richmond or Brent Sexton or Michelle Forbes as Rosie’s parents.
