The Killing canceled

MAJOR BUMMER: In an unexpected move—at least to us hard-core fans here in the cesspool—AMC has canceled The Killing. “After much deliberation, we've come to the difficult decision not to renew The Killing for a third season," the cable channel said on Friday. "AMC is incredibly proud of the show and is fortunate to have worked with such a talented team on this project, from showrunner Veena Sud and our terrific partners at Fox Television Studios to the talented, dedicated crew and exceptional cast.” Fox TV Studios followed with a statement of its own, promising that it "will proceed to try to find another home for the show."
