Have Linden and Holder solved their first and last case? If the ratings from the two-part season finale are any indication, our detectives might be looking elsewhere to find employment.
Still reeling from their disappointing season 1 finale, the team behind “The Killing” seemed to regain their stride toward the end of season 2, but the numbers tell a different story.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the second part of the show’s finale had an audience of 1.4 million, which went up to 1.9 million with the encore. Overall, that's a 22 percent drop from the first part of the finale the week before, and a 39 percent dip from last season’s frustratingly confusing ending.
In an interview with EW, actress Jamie Anne Allman - a.k.a Aunt Terry the killer - was optimistic about “The Killing” coming back for a third season.
“They have a whole other crime idea set up and in place,” Allman said. “It should be exciting. And Mireille Enos (Linden) and Joel Kinnaman (Holder) are such an amazing pair. They have great chemistry.”
But others, like CNN commenter Barbara, are definitely #TeamKilling. “Loved this show from the beginning to the end. Really loved that it wasn't all slicked up. The writing was great as were the actors. I thought the finale was VERY satisfying. Would love to see a 3rd season.”
Would you watch another season of “The Killing”?
