Seasons

47%
Critics Consensus: While its characters still intrigue and its atmosphere remains absorbingly dark, The Killing succumbs to silliness in its fourth season, straying into distractingly overwrought territory.

2014, AMC, 6 episodes

67%
Critics Consensus: Though The Killing's third season doesn't do anything much differently than before, it continues to benefit from strong acting, and new viewers should be able to jump right in with ease.

2013, AMC, 12 episodes

68%
Critics Consensus: The Killing's second season feels a bit tedious and unsure of where it wants to go, but it succeeds in keeping the audience on its toes, thanks to consistently fantastic acting and some strategic storytelling.

2012, AMC, 13 episodes

100%
Critics Consensus: The Killing is a slow burning mystery with an eerie, mutli-dimensional story propelled by thoughtful writing, believable characters, and realistic horror, even if its season finale was unsatisfying.

2011, AMC, 13 episodes
