The KillingThe Killing Season 3 Casting Scoop



Fans of The Killing will be happy to hear what TV Film News has discovered about the AMC crime drama set in Seattle.




After The Killing was officially cancelled, Variety reported (on November 30th, 2012)

The mystery of whether “The Killing” will be brought back to life has been solved: The show is returning to AMC.

Though neither the cabler nor producer Fox Television Studios would confirm, showrunner Veena Sud and exec producers Dawn Prestwich and Nicole Yorkin went back to the writers’ room this week to begin work on a third season of the moody drama.

The new season will likely launch in late May, with production set to begin in a few months.



TV Line’s Mike Ausiello and Andy Patrick delivered this Exclusive Scoop on The Killing, January 9th, 2013:


Although AMC has yet to officially resurrect The Killing, TVLine has learned that production on Season 3 is set to begin on Feb. 25.

And here’s the latest casting scoop:

Tom Seward is a thirtysomething Neanderthal on death row for the murder of his wife. In what seems likely to be his last month on earth, he takes a (perhaps ill-advised) stroll down memory lane, tripping on the secrets he’s left behind like a trail of bloody bread crumbs.

Danette Lutz, in her late 30s, is probably the worst mother since Mo’Nique in Precious. How bad is she? She could easily forget she even is a mother until her 15-year-old, Kallie, goes missing.

Bullet is a 16-year-old tough guy who looks out for all the local street girls. But there’s more to him than meets the eye: Most significantly, he’s… a she.

Alton Singleterry is a Machiavellian young gangbanger who seems to think that death row is party to which he can RSVP no.

Ed Skinner is Linden’s old partner, a middle-aged Dudley Do-Right whose record is spotless, save for a brief extramarital fling with a co-worker. (Could that co-worker have been Linden? Hmm… )

Tiny is the underage female hooker to whom Bullet’s heart belongs. The only trouble is (well, the only trouble aside from her being an underage hooker!), Tiny’s crazy about someone else.

Twitch is yet another JV hooker, a wannabe star with a rap sheet that’s longer than he is tall.



While The Killing is still listed as officially cancelled after the murder of Rosie Larson was officially solved. Recent news sources such as The New York Times, rated The Killing in their Top Ten shows for 2012. AMC has responded by airing Encore presentations of The Killing on Sunday’s at 8: A.M.


So what do you think, should AMC revive the show or were two seasons enough?
