Though it met an early demise this past summer after a lackluster second season, AMC drama “The Killing” got a second chance at life when the cable network announced they would be bringing the show back, with Netflix likely handling a share of the costs.

The Killing Billy Campbell

Though it met an early demise this past summer after a lackluster second season, AMC drama “The Killing” got a second chance at life when the cable network announced they would be bringing the show back, with Netflix likely handling a share of the costs. While both Mirielle Enos and Joel Kinnaman are set to return, it seems that other members of the ensemble won’t be back for the new season.

Variety is reporting that Billy Campbell won’t reprise his role of Seattle mayoral candidate Darren Richmond in the third season. The grieving parents of the murdered Rosie Larsen, played by Brent Sexton and Michelle Forbes, will also not be making any appearances in the returning show as it makes a clean break from the mystery that took two increasingly frustrating seasons to solve.

Not many shows get a second chance -- especially after getting outright cancelled -- so we hope showrunner Veena Sud and the writers will bring back the show in top form. Are there any changes you'd like to see happen on the show? “The Killing” will air its third season next May.
