Critic 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.

News & Interviews for The Killing: Season 3
Maybe The Killing will hit a firmer stride before crossing this season's finish line. But the feeling persists that executive producer/writer/director Veena Sud again will come up short in what looks to be a last gasp.
So, no, The Killing wasn't canceled. Unfortunately, it's still dark, depressing and terminally dull.
Ultimately AMC chose not to kill The Killing, and the channel may have made the right decision, assuming the rest of the season unfolds as compellingly as Sunday's premiere.
The Killing is back, and if you loved the first round, it's still a killer.
Audience Reviews for The Killing: Season 3
It is very rare for a TV series to get their mojo back after a disasterous season (e.g. Heroes). But The Killing has achieved just that. Packed with more intrigue, matured characters and new excellent actors, Season 3 goes back to what made Season 1 a must-see series.
