The Killing cast on set for season 4 - My 1st look at Mireille, Joel & Gregg at set for episode 1 in February
Back from the dead is a term used on TV a lot. Referring to characters, careers & even occasionally, shows.
Back from the dead more than once. A lot less often. Maybe if you are referring to a character on the CW sci-fi show "Supernatural" it might be more common place, but for the general TV viewing world, it just doesnt happen too often, and certainly not with TV shows.....till now.
After season 2 of the AMC crime-drama "The Killing" the station announced its cancellation, ending a short, but spectacular show & leaving its die hard fans eager for more. A few months passed, and a deal, championed by online streaming provider Netflix, brought the series back from the dead. A 3rd season of the show was done, and again, at the end of its run, which again, left fans clamouring for more, AMC killed it yet again.
Cue mid-November. I was on the phone with a buddy when he told me a piece of news that sincerely shocked me. Netflix has picked up "The Killing" and will air a 6 episode final season to wrap up what many fans considered, too big of a cliffhanger to let it go.
I strongly supported & championed the fan groups who worked hard to get it back. I love the show, and wanted to see it wrap up properly. But I warned them "dont expect to get it". I was certain with 1 revival already under its belt, a 2nd summoning from the dead was practically impossible. I hoped I was wrong, and am glad I am.

Finally back, The Killing started its production for the 4th & final season in late February. I managed to catch up to them early in shooting & although I didnt get to see any of the actual filming, I did get a few photos of Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos ) & Stephen Holder ( Joel Kinnaman ) as they signed for my buddy who I introduced to the show near the end of filming for season 3 & became a fan of it afterwards. Also there was Carl Reddick ( Gregg Henry) [who I foolishly called Clark Gregg after JUST finishing a convo with my buddy about Agents of Shield], as well as a dark haired girl that I never found the name of, but was cast of some type.
Season 4 will be focused on wrapping up the loose ends & solving a murder at an all boys military academy outside Seattle.
No release date for the 6 episode season has been announced yet, but I would guess mid-late summer.
You can find old episodes of The Killing from the 1st three seasons on the site of their new producer, NETFLIX.
Recently, I caught up with the cast & crew of Continuum filming scenes near their "Vancouver Police Headquarters" at the Plaza Of Nations This time however, it was not the VPD side of the cast filming, but Luvia Petersen & Omari Newton doing a scene as Garza & Lucas.
As you know if you have kept up with this current season of Continuum, Garza helped Lucas escape the Mental hospital with 1 of the more entertaining & creative escapes I have ever seen any show implement. One of the last things he says to her before they take off is how much he misses sushi. As we see in this scene, Lucas finally gets some sushi. Which was funny in itself, as Omari would spit out the sushi after every take. Guessing either Omari doesnt love it as much as his character, or the more likely, you dont want to eat 50 takes of sushi in 1 day.
In this scene Garza and Lucas are in a park/trail talking when Garza then takes out a needle & jabs it into Lucas. What is it? No clue. Lucas didnt seem too concerned by it, but considering he might be a tad nuts, this shouldnt come as a shock. Also, lets be honest. If Garza tells you she going to stick a needle into your neck, theres not much you are going to be able to do to stop Garza from sticking a needle into your neck... so might as well go with it I suppose.
While Luvia & Omari were filming, my buddy & I ran into Rachel Nichols who was leaving the trailers to o to their 2nd location that was shooting that day. I also saw Victor Webster, but as you can see by my photo, I didnt get a photo of his face as he was distracted by a couple dogs.
Eventually Omari & Luvia wrapped their scenes. The production moved inside the VPD HQ. I got autographs from Omari, who asked me if I was a fan of the show, and Luvia who I also told that I liked her performance on another local show Psych, that she had a guest spot on that I had seen just recently before the filming of this day.
Continuum season 3 is on right now Sundays on Showcase in Canada, and Fridays on Syfy in the U.S.
