Critic 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.

News & Interviews for The Killing: Season 4
The final season of The Killing has the dark cop drama playing its strongest card well.
Like LinkedIn and the career of Ryan Reynolds, The Killing is one of those cultural non-phenomenons that somehow manages to slip through the cracks of reason and persist long after its expected expiration date.
I truly like the character work done by Enos and Kinnaman but the fourth season of The Killing feels like an afterthought.
The last five minutes are either the wrongest or rightest ending possible (you decide), but no one will disagree that after all its relentless digressions, this show finally has an ending.
The Killing still has some pulling power, even if the initial thrill of Season 1 is long since gone.
