After canceling the show about a pair of cops who solved the 2 season long querie "Who Killed Rosie Larsen?", AMC opted to bring it back after lots of fan support & a deal that was reached between Fox Television Studios & Online streaming service "Netflix" to produce the 3rd season.
As a fan of the show, I am excited by this news. As an autograph hound, overjoyed, as Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop ) and Mireille Enos (World War Z ) seem to only being going up in star ratings with their major roles in these 2 anticipated releases.
last time I blogged about this show, it was for the season 2 finale, as I GUESSED (or predicted, however you want to call it) Rosie Larsen's killer would be Aunt Terry. http://canadagraphs.weebly.com/1/post/2012/06/for-2-years-we-all-have-asked-who-killed-rosie-larsen-tonight-we-find-out-on-the-killing-i-know-for-sure-it-was-not-me.html it would also be the last blog I ever did in that blog section.
Lots has changed since season 2. All the main/secondary cast from the 1st two seasons are gone but Holder & Linden. We now find Stephen Holder ( Joel Kinnaman ) donning Detective duds & not his trademark slacker/sleazeball look he carried throughout the 2 previous seasons as a narcotics cop turned homicide investigator. Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos ) is no longer on the force, but is drawn back in after a case Holder is working on connects to a string of murders connected to a case she led (perhaps the mysterious case referenced several times over Seasons 1 & 2).
New to the cast will be Peter Sarsgaard, Elias Koteas, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Hugh Dillion, Gregg Henry & Amy Seimetz as well as many more.
The premiere for season 3 is still several weeks away, but I caught them a couple times out filming scenes for the upcoming season. The 1st day I got to set just as Mireille Enos did a scene at a school in the playground. Shortly after she wrapped, and Joel Kinnaman came to do scenes a block away at an walking overpass. I didnt take any photos that day that were too impressive. A few days later they returned to the area on the other side of the train tracks the overpass covers to film a scene where Holder & his new partner (I believe Gregg Henry, but cant be sure) are staking out a complex when a car comes screeching out & takes off from the area leading to the new Detective & his partner to follow.
The 1 notable I have noticed missing this season so far that I saw at so many sets in season 1 & 2, rain towers. While they did soak the streets down, they didnt have the massive rain towers working to give the impression of a monsoon level rain that the creators gave Seattle, Washington in seasons 1 & 2.
Here is a handfull of photos I took of the scene being shot earlier this month for season 3 of The Killing
EDIT - These are photos from episode 4.
They are of Holder & his new partner Reddick (Gregg Henry) , chasing after 1 of the suspects Goldie ( Brendan Fletcher ) & another woman.
