Netflix has ordered a fourth and final limited season that will serve as a conclusion for The Killing, exclusively for its over 40 million members worldwide. The 6-episode series finale, from Fox Television Studios (FTVS), will be available only to Netflix streaming members to watch instantly in all Netflix territories.

Netflix's Cindy Holland had this to say in a statement.

"The rich, serialized storytelling in The Killing thrives on Netflix, and we believe that it is only fitting to give Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder a proper send off. We are looking forward to offering fans - both existing and new - a series that we know is perfectly suited for on-demand viewing."


David Madden, president, Fox Television Studios, had this to say in a statement.

"It's a true testament to The Killing creator Veena Sud, and the stellar cast led so compellingly by Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, that fans remained so passionate about the show. We're gratified that our partners at Netflix recognized this, and are giving us the opportunity to complete the story in a way that will be satisfying to our loyal audience."


The first three seasons of The Killing are now available to stream globally on Netflix.

Based on the Danish series Forbrydelsen, The Killing follows various murder investigations led by homicide detectives "Sarah Linden" (Mireille Enos) and "Stephen Holder" (Joel Kinnaman). Seasons one and two chronicled the "Rosie Larsen case," with Linden and Holder investigating the murder of a teenage girl. Picking up one year after the close of that investigation, season three followed the detectives on their search for a runaway girl, leading them to discover a gruesome string of murders that connected to a previous investigation by Linden.

The Killing is created and executive-produced by Veena Sud. Mikkel Bondesen is executive producer for Fabrik Entertainment. Kristen Campo also serves as co-executive producer for Fabrik. The Killing is produced by Fox Television Studios for Netflix.

    @Tracy-Bargas Its such a different format from the typical police procedurals. It also has a rather grim tone which I just love. Brilliant show with great actors.

    The killing is my favorite show on Netflix it's a lot better than CSI or even law and order because those shows solve one case per episode ran the killing takes an entire season to show it and that case solving. it shows the lives of the lives and what happens to the victim and the victim's family friends and even the suspects as well. I wish the series didn't have to end. it will be missed.

    If only Netflix would pick-up "Happy Endings" for a fourth (and final) season.

    I DVRed the whole 3rd season, due to my work schedule at the time, and planned on binge watching the whole thing. Come to find out that they were cancelling it again. Said f*ck this and cleared my DVR. Saw that they put the 3rd season on netflix and figured I might watch it, because I loved the first 2 seasons. This is great news to me, because this way they can plan out a proper ending for it and we have the plus of seeing Linden and Holder again for 6 more episodes.

    Must be cheaper this way. I don't like how Netflix is nearly a channel now.

    Even if its only 6 episodes...THANK GOD! The way the last season ended (and then to find out it was canceled) made me want to pull out my hair.
