One of the most intriguing – and, for many people, frustrating – shows of the last few years, AMC’s The Killing returns for an unexpected third season June 2nd. Check out the video look at the new season after the jump.
Following the Talking Dead model, AMC is premiering Talking Bad following each of the remaining eight episodes of the network’s unique fall-from-grace series Breaking Bad. Also new is Low Winter Sun, starring Lennie James (The Walking Dead, Jericho), in which events are precipitated by the murder of a Detroit cop by a fellow police detective; Showville, an unscripted series about putting on a local talent show in small town America, and Owner’s Manual – pitting manual users against manual ignorers.
Returning shows include Breaking Bad, Comic book Men, Freakshow, Hell on wheels, Small Town Security, Talking Dead, The Killing and The Pitch. For deates, times and series descriptions, follow the jump.
If you missed out on the series premiere of AMC’s The Killing [Sundays, 10/9C], you can now view the two hour debut online, or on AMC, this evening, at 8/7C [followed immediately by episode three]. Shot at a very measured pace, The Killing follows the investigation of the murder of Rosie Larson. Each episode represents one day in the investigation – and the series follows three through lines: the actual investigation of the murder; the effect of the murder on the girl’s family, and the effect of the investigation on a political campaign that is tangentially connected to the murder.
AMC’s The Killing premieres with a two-hour episode on Sunday, April 3, 2011 and, if this trailer is any indication, it looks like it will match the quality of Mad Men and The Walking Dead.
AMC has quickly become a go-to network for original drama. Shows like Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead are considered to be among the absolute best series on television – even the net’s one early cancelation, Rubicon, got rave reviews and garnered a fanatical [if a hair too small] audience.
On April 3rd, 2011, AMC premieres The Killing – a series about the investigation of the murder of a young girl in Seattle. Each episode will cover one day in the investigation. The official press release follows the jump.
