Forget “The Walking Dead.” Joel Kinnaman calls “The Killing” the “real zombie show on AMC.” The network canceled the police drama twice, first after its second season and then again last year after its third go-round.
But the show will rise from the dead once again for six episodes — on Netflix this time — beginning Aug. 1. And we’ve got Kinnaman coming into The Times’ TV studio at 1:30 p.m. PDT Monday to talk about the series’ final season (it is final, right?) and why “The Killing” just won’t die.
“The rich, serialized storytelling in ‘The Killing’ thrives on Netflix, and we believe that it is only fitting to give Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder a proper sendoff,” said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix, referring to the characters played by Kinnaman and Mireille Enos. “We are looking forward to offering fans — both existing and new — a series that we know is perfectly suited for on-demand viewing.”
We’re guessing the existing fans are pretty stoked about the last reprieve. Are you one of the die-hards? Do you have a question you’d like us to ask Kinnaman? Tweet it to us at #asklatimes and we’ll gladly oblige. See you Monday.
