Get More: Exclusive, First Look

The Killing‘s Linden and Holder are back on duty on June 2 (AMC, 8/7c), and we’ve got your exclusive first look at the powerful pair’s third season — as well as a visual hint at the new case that will consume them.

In the photo below, Mireille Enos‘ Sarah Linden and Joel Kinnaman‘s Stephen Holder stare stalwartly into the distance while a group of street kids (new cast members Cate Sproule, Max Fowler, Julia Sarah Stone and Bex Taylor Klaus) hang out in the background.

We know that the revived drama will pick up a year after the Rosie Larsen case closes, when Holder’s search for a runaway girl leads to a string of murders related to an investigation from Linden’s past. Might someone in this blurry group of teens have some insight into the newest mystery?

Take a good look at the pic, then hit the comments with your thoughts!

  • Holder does look more handsome than ever. I am looking forward to the return. I like both characters a lot. The show atmosphere is great, hope it moves forward. I’m so glad this show is still alive.

  • Great decision to bring this back! Enos and Kinnaman have such great chemistry together. Let’s just hope the showrunners cut down a bit on the torrential downpours. More of the gentle mists, please!

    • Hahaha….I had already commented above but I was thinking, “please don’t let it rain so much.” It was so depressing!

  • The previews for The Killing look awesome. I’ve seen them watching Mad Men. Agree with other commenters that Holder looks great. He & Linden are a good team. Can’t wait for the new season!

  • Thank heaven for Holder’s shoes, otherwise I’d think he’s gone over to the dark side! Wonder if the whole “manager” look will remain or if it’s just a passing fad with him. Have to say he looks great!

  • Don’t be depressed about the rain. I lived in Seattle for 17 years and saw much worse rain than they feature on the show. It is realistic, and I like to tell myself “I don’t live there anymore!! YEA!……….

  • I live in Seattle and it doesn’t rain as much as people believe. We have just had over two weeks of no cloud, blue sky 70 – 80 degree weather. This happens alot here and it is one of the best kept secrets around. As for the show, I was hooked from the first episode. Just wish it was filmed in Seattle, not just canned shots every so often. So glad they decided to bring it back and am hoping that it is able to continue for a long time. Can’t wait for June 2nd.

  • I was getting worried because my dvr is still recording old eps! I am thrilled that this show was saved. This duo has some awesome chemistry and I’m glad to see Holder in a suit. WOW! I hadn’t noticed the wings behind Linden and I wonder if it portends a death? I certainly hope not hers, buf maybe someo e close to her.
