What's that? A rare ding from our oddly empty Bockmail account? And it's from AMC: "After much deliberation, we’ve come to the difficult decision not to renew The Killing for a third season," says the network statement. "AMC is incredibly proud of the show and is fortunate to have worked with such a talented team on this project, from showrunner Veena Sud and our terrific partners at Fox Television Studios to the talented, dedicated crew and exceptional cast." Mireille Enos: free to wear blouses now, if she wants. Joel Kinnaman: freed, period. Gum: chewed no more. Planes: caught. OH BUT WAIT, a final twist from Fox Television, the studio that produces The Killing: "We will proceed to try to find another home for the show." One last cliff-hanger. One ... last ... cliff-hanger.
