This Year's Most Unjustly Cancelled Show Is Getting Another Season On Netflix

If you had told me last year that AMC had cancelled The Killing* I would have said “you’re damn right.” What an irritating morass that second season was. But the third season? As we tried to tell you all summer, the third season of The Killing was amazing. Between an amazing Lecter-ish turn from Peter Sarsgaard, the amazing young actors they hired to play Seattle street kids and a deeply personal case, the show absolutely nailed it in the third season. And they cancelled it anyway. WHERE IS THE JUSTICE?

Netflix, in their ineffable, infinite wisdom, have decided to give the show a fourth season. Even better? The fourth season is only going to be a trim six episodes. That should cut down on some of the excessively grim rain shots and tighten the focus on Holder and Linden. Those of you who watched last season will be glad for the closure for Linden’s plot especially.

Those of you who are not invested in The Killing? Ah this is where you praise the resurrection powers of Netflix generally and speculate wildly about some of your other favorite shows coming back. I won’t say it, I’ll just let you dream for yourselves.


*Yeah, yeah, they technically did.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
