Here’s the most important/interesting bits from the press release:
- “Season three will focus on a new case, which will be resolved over the course of 12 episodes.” So no season-ending non-resolution cliffhanger that almost sunk the show in the eyes of critics and audiences (not this guy though)
- Production on season three begins February 25th in Vancouver. That could mean a late-2013 premiere date, though AMC will have plenty of shows scheduled for the year: Breaking Bad in late summer, Walking Dead in the fall, and also Hell on Wheels and Mad Men at some point in time, with probably a new show or two to premiere. So they could really end up scheduling The Killing at any point (or even 2014)
- Season 3 Plot Information: “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.” Sounds very promising.
