‘The Killing’ Season 3 Photos: Holder and Linden Back on the Case!
We’re definitely anxious to get a look at the June 2 premiere of ‘The Killing‘ season 3, which may well right the wrongs of its predecessors by focusing on the strengths of its characters. We’ve seen a few trailers to date, but now AMC has released the full batch of photos from the premiere, and Seattle looks darker and moodier than ever!
After its initial cancellation, AMC’s murder-mystery drama has been given a second (or third) chance with its upcoming third season, set to premiere on Sunday, June 2. To help prepare viewers for the moody premiere double whammy “The Jungle” and “What You Fear the Most,” the network has released the full round of promotional photos from the first episodes, albeit surprisingly light on Sarah Linden (‘World War Z‘s’ Mireille Enos).
‘The Killing’ season 3 picks up approximately one year after the Rosie Larsen case’s end, as Linden returns from retirement to help Holder with a case that ties back to one of her previous investigations. Showrunner Veena Sud told us that the new case drew inspiration from real-life incidents, including photographer Mary Ellen Mark’s work depicting street youths in the 1970s, and the police investigation of Washington serial killer Gary Ridgway, which involved 50 women disappearing over the course of 20 years.
In addition to the casting of Peter Sarsgaard as death row inmate Ray Seward, ‘The Killing’ season 3 also boasts ‘Battlestar Galactica’ vet Aaron Douglas, ‘Flashpoint’s’ Hugh Dillon, Johnny Ray Gill, Amy Semeitz, Max Fowler and Elias Koteas among its cast.
