LOS ANGELES — Netflix says it is reviving “The Killing” after its cancellation by AMC.
A fourth and final season will be available to Netflix subscribers, the streaming service said today. Six episodes are planned to give the crime drama a “proper send-off,” Netflix executive Cindy Holland said in a statement.
Stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman will return to the crime drama for its conclusion, producer Fox Television Studios said.
“The Killing,” based on a Danish series and developed by Veena Sud, has had a rocky history. AMC canceled it after a second-year ratings slump, reversed its decision and then axed it again after the third season aired in the summer.
Netflix said the final six episodes of “The Killing” will be available for instant viewing but didn’t announce the release date.
