Many have been curious for a while now about the ultimate fate on The Killing. The show continues to be a hotbed for critical acclaim despite viewer backlash from the first season’s closer, and the ratings appear to be above the marks that would normally usually get a show cancelled. Perhaps this is the reason why it is generally believed that the show is not yet finished especially considering we live in a world will Netflix could always step in and take up the gauntlet should AMC wimp out. That said, today we look at a few interview excerpts from series star Joel Kinnaman who recently talked to the movie-television blog Collider about The Killing when promoting his new film Easy Money.
In response to the question, “Do you know if there will be a Season 3 of The Killing?” he claims he has not heard anything. That we believe 100% because quite frankly no one has heard anything on that front, but what is more interesting is his nonchalant attitude about the show’s ultimate fate to which he replies:
I won’t be devastated, but I’m really looking forward to playing another season. I really like Holder, and I’d love to continue his and Linden’s (Mireille Enos) journey together.
On a personal level, I was hoping he would actually be devastated because that means there is really a desire there to get this thing done from all parties involved. It does not look to be that way and for good reason too. Series leads Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman each have booming careers outside of The Killing. Enos has a supporting role in the Brad Pitt zombie flick World War Z and Kinnaman is set to star as the title character in RoboCop alongside Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson. The bottom line? These two are prepared to move on and AMC might just let them.
