AMC Didn’t Expect Your Reaction to The Killing’s Finale


Showrunner Veena Sud has said that she was "flattered" by the outcry to the finale of her series, The Killing, which wrapped up its first season without resolving the mystery of who killed Rosie Larsen. AMC president Charlie Collier, on the other hand, is a little more penitent. "We underestimated the passion of viewers have for closure within this season," he admitted to EW. "It was never our intention to misguide the viewer. The audience has an important voice, we heard them and don't take them for granted." Collier says he stands by Sud's obstinacy, but he regrets that the show's marketing campaign seemed to imply that a resolution was coming: "Risk-taking is what we do; cliffhangers are a staple of TV and a huge part of mysteries. If I could do anything differently, it would be to manage expectations." [Inside TV/EW]
