Executive producer/showrunner Veena Sud will be coming back and, as expected, Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman will be reprising their roles, but Billy Campbell, Brent Sexton, and Michelle Forbes will not be coming back. So what will happen to Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder this time around? The plot, as revealed from AMC’s press release: “A year after closing the Rosie Larsen case, Sarah Linden is no longer a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder’s search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she’d left behind.”
No word on when the show will start airing, though a fall release is most likely. We can only hope that the third season will indeed be a marked improvement over the last one, especially considering how much trouble the producers seemingly went through in order to get the show back on the air. AMC has decided to give the show a second chance, will you?
