  • I really hope it is renewed for Season 4. I thought they did a remarkable season this year. Really enjoyed the show. I want Linden and Holder back!

  • I hope that THE KILLING is renewed I’ve been watching since day one. I think it’s Awesome! Linden & Holder are great together they make the show. Her dryness and his sense of humor works for me.

  • Such an underrated show. The acting is phenominal and that final scene of the finale begs for a season 4 to be produced.

  • I really hope it gets picked up for another season. I liked season three better than the second season. It was so intense and wanted more as soon as the episode was over.

  • Hope it gets renewed. Season three was a borderline masterpiece; it’s only misstep in my opinion was the final hour, which I find myself liking less and less the more I think about it. Still one of the best single seasons of a TV show I’ve seen in a long time. We need more Linden and Holder.
