AMC bringing back ‘The Killing’ for a third season

 

Akron Beacon Journal

Q. We missed the second season of AMC’s The Killing while overseas. Do you have any information as to when AMC plans to show it again?

AMC has begun replaying the series, starting with the first season, at 8 a.m. on Sundays. The second season is also available for online streaming via Amazon Instant Video, and this week the channel announced production will begin Feb. 25 on a new season. No premiere date was given.

Here’s how AMC describes Season 3, according to The New York Times: “A year after closing the Rosie Larsen case, Sarah Linden is no longer a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder’s search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she’d left behind.”

Q. Whatever happened with 666 Park Avenue? We love the show and miss it.

ABC decided not to continue the eerie drama beyond its initial 13-episode run. Ten of those episodes had aired by late December when ABC took it off entirely in favor of other programming. According to Deadline.com, the remaining episodes will air in the summer.Q. My husband and I had been fans of The Closer and were sorry when it ended. We watched Major Crimes, and then it seemed to disappear. Will Major Crimes be back?

Yes. For those of you tuning in late, The Closer ended its run in 2012 when star Kyra Sedgwick decided it was time to move on. It continued with many of the other cast members under the title Major Crimes. That show did well enough in a 10-episode run that TNT ordered more. New episodes will begin airing this summer.Q. I head that Jamie Foxx said something on Saturday Night Live about liking his new movie because he gets to kill white people. What gives?

While hosting SNL on Dec. 8, Jamie Foxx used his opening monologue to riff on how “It’s good to be black.” He mentioned basketball’s Nets going to Brooklyn, Jay-Z, President Barack Obama and his new film, the Quentin Tarantino-directed Django Unchained. Foxx said that he plays a slave, and “How black is that?” Then he told the audience that “I save my wife and I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that? And how black is that?” Clearly, Foxx was trying, however unsuccessfully, to be funny.
