Netflix Announces "The Killing" Season 3 Coming Exclusively to Its Streaming Members Globally

Season 2 is Now Available for Members in the U.S. to Watch Instantly

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., March 14, 2013 -- Netflix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) and Fox Television Studios (FTVS) today announced Season 3 of fan favorite The Killing, which premieres on AMC in 2013, will be available exclusively for streaming members after its airing in the U.S. In the U.S. and Canada, the deal brings Season 3 to Netflix members three months after the season finale airs on AMC. The deal makes Netflix the exclusive subscription television service for The Killing Season 3.

In addition, the complete Season 2 of The Killing is available for members in the U.S., along with Season 1, which launched on Netflix in 2012. Over the next few months, members in all 40 countries where Netflix is available will be able to enjoy Seasons 1 and 2 of The Killing, prior to the Season 3 launch.

"We're excited to see The Killing back on TV and we're especially proud to bring Season 3 to our members so soon after it premieres on AMC," said Ted Sarandos , Chief Content Officer, Netflix. "The Killing is a terrific serialized drama and we know our members love these high-quality shows."

David Madden , president of Fox Television Studios, said, "Our agreement with Netflix played an extremely significant part in the studio's strategy that enabled us to bring The Killing back for a third season. Our showrunner, Veena Sud , has plunged our principals into new and dangerous worlds, with wicked twists and a climactic end-of-season resolution, and our acclaimed cast, including Mireille Enos , Joel Kinnaman and new cast member Peter Sarsgaard, are already thrillingly bringing it to life. We are delighted to be in business with Netflix to deliver Season 3, as well as past seasons of The Killing to a broader audience worldwide."

The critically acclaimed drama, based on the Danish series Forbrydelsen, follows various murder investigations led by homicide detectives " Sarah Linden " ( Mireille Enos ) and " Stephen Holder " ( Joel Kinnaman ). After the close of the "Rosie Larsen case," covered over the first two seasons of the series, Season 3 picks up one year later, with Linden no longer a detective. When ex-partner Holder's search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind.
