Variety is reporting that The Killing may air its third season on AMC after all. This past summer the network cancelled the series after a disappointing second season that was never quite able to recover from the backlash received due to the first season’s cliffhanger ending. Most people stopped watching after the ill-conceived first season finale and those that didn’t, weren’t able to stick with it for much longer as season two saw a significant drop in viewers.

Set for a May 2013 premiere, the third season is currently in development. Details on the deal to bring it back aren’t clear yet but it seems that AMC will be partnering up with Netflix to share the costs. Stars Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos will return but there’s no confirmation on other cast members like Michelle Forbes, Brent Sexton or Billy Campbell.
