'The Killing' gets a second season

Breathe a sigh of relief, “The Killing” fans – whatever doesn’t get wrapped up in season one can be delved into next season, since the AMC show has officially gotten picked up again.

The network announced on Monday that the crime drama has been a hit and that another 13 episodes are on the way. The production crew, says AMC's senior vice president of original programming, production and digital content Joel Stillerman in a statement, has shown the network "how much room there is to elevate the crime drama with this series."

Stillerman went on that "The suspense of the investigation in each episode, and the emotional intensity of the characters over the season give this show a visceral quality that makes for incredibly powerful television. A lot of loyal fans made a huge investment in this show this season, and we are thrilled to be able to bring it back next season for all involved.”

    The actors/actresses– (Great Chemistry on this show)–outstanding–and the location Seattle Washington with all the rain–just was perfect for this TV series...it made it more interesting and sad–about the Killing of Rosie..

    What a great show! The ending on Sunday was amazing,although I still hope it's not who they say it was on the preview.Between "the killing" and "the living dead" AMC has come out on top!
