The season finale of the AMC series, which has been renewed for a second season, airs Sunday night. I watched faithfully for weeks and then, well, didn't. Just got tired of the whole thing. You may differ.
Anyway, the official word: Sundance Channel will air a marathon of the hit series “The Killing” leading into the June 19 season one finale on sister network AMC. Sundance Channel’s marathon of “The Killing” will air the first six episodes starting Saturday, June 18 from 4-10PM ET/PT, and the subsequent six episodes on Sunday, June 19 from 4-10PM ET/PT. Viewers can then catch the season one finale on Sunday, June 19 at 10PM ET/PT on AMC.
“The Killing” has been heralded as “spellbinding,” “excellent, absorbing and addictive” and “one of Spring’s most compelling new series.” The series hails from writer, executive producer and showrunner Veena Sud (“Cold Case”) and is produced by Fox Television Studios. “The Killing” tells the story of the murder of a teenage girl and the subsequent police investigation. Based on the hugely successful Danish television series “Forbrydelsen,” the series is beautifully set in Seattle, which uniquely sets a “Nordic noir” tone and mood for the show and is anchored by a breakout cast, including Mireille Enos (“Big Love”) as Sarah Linden, the lead homicide detective investigating the death of Rosie Larsen; Billy Campbell (“Once and Again”) as Darren Richmond, Seattle’s City Council President running for Mayor; Joel Kinnaman (Snabba Cash) as Stephen Holder, an ex-narc cop who joins the homicide division in the investigation to find Rosie’s killer; Michelle Forbes (“True Blood”) as Rosie’s mother, Mitch; and Brent Sexton (W., “In the Valley of Elah”) as Rosie’s father, Stan.
