The Killing returns.  Months after AMC cancelled the drama series following its second season, it appears that a deal is being hammered out to now bring the show back.  Deadline reports that The Killing producer Fox TV Studios was relentless in their pursuit to keep the show alive, and after talking with a number of potential buyers they finally found a partner in Netflix.  AMC will be teaming up with the streaming juggernaut for the third season, with AMC airing the episodes first before they go up on Netflix.  Hit the jump for more.

Deadline purports that this new decision may actually be good for AMC, as the network is looking at losing a few of its flagship series soon.  Breaking Bad comes to an end after next season, Man Men only has two seasons left, and the future of Hell on Wheels is now in limbo as series showrunner John Shiban recently jumped ship following a season three pick-up.  They still have megahit The Walking Dead, but their bullpen is starting to look thin.

Enos and Kinnaman are contractually obligated to return for season three, though both have been plenty busy as of late.  Enos appears opposite Brad Pitt in the upcoming zombie drama World War Z and Kinnaman is currently filming the lead role in the RoboCop remake.
