AMC critically acclaimed drama "The Killing" is filming its 3rd season, despite originally being Canceled - Giving countless other shows hope of a resurrection
Some people dont know this but... AMC renewed the critically acclaimed cop drama "The Killing" awhile ago for an unexpected 3rd season.
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.
With The Killing returning for a 3rd season after its cancelation, many other shows that have been canceled are looking at its resurrection as a sign that their show too can be brought back. Maybe Netflix, who has helped Arrested Development return as well will be a major force in bringing shows back for 1 or 2 more seasons for fans who are devoted to trying to push for another season or two of their favorites. Could TNT hit "Leverage" garner this type of consideration? We will see as time goes on how Netflix handles the influx of canceled shows & the rabid fanbases wanting to resurrect their favorite shows. If only this option existed when "Dead Like Me" was unjustly canceled by Showtime.
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.
