    My wife will be sad. She loved this show.

    We watched it all in about 2 weeks though, not as it aired. To all the people that skipped season 2, dont just watch the final episode. You need to watch at least the final 2, otherwise you miss a lot. I would actually watch all of season 2 for it to make more sense.

    I liked the show as well. I thought season 3 may be about the case that drove Linden crazy the first time. A bit of evidence may come up that would fire that case back up. They built up enough back story for the case in the first 2 seasons.

    I imagine if one watched the two seasons in a short period, some of the frustrations of Season One would be mitigated. But I'd also think that the 'red herring of the week' format would be incredibly tiresome in a condensed format. So that might be a wash.

    Not having seen season two, I can't comment on that, but I do believe that if I had watched it all in a relatively short period, knowing that there was going to be a resolution, it would not have resulted in any animosity. The, as you put it, 'red herring of the week' writing style would not have been a problem. That's typical of a lot of shows--except Columbo, he always knew who the killer was from the get-go. He merely had to annoy a confession out of who he knew to be the perp.:)

    Looks like there is a chance The Killing will be UNcancelled.

    Saw this on Twitter a little while ago. Such bizarre news. If you asked me to guess what canceled show might be resurrected through a deal with Netflix, of all the canceled shows that have devoted fan bases clamoring to have the show return, this would probably be among the last on my list. Was *anyone* clamoring for this show to come back? Would anyone be interested in watching a third season, especially if Veena Sud is still involved?

    I wasn't clamoring for it to return, but will be happy if it does- I will definitely watch a season 3 if it happens.

    I would think they couldn't afford the two leads anyway. Joel Kinnaman is the next Robocop, and Mirelle Enos is Brad Pitt's wife in the World War Z movie. While they'd be available by the time they'd start Season 3, the $ they can demand has likely gone up.

    Don't know if it is accurate or not, but the article I read stated that both were already under contract for season 3, which was one of the big reasons for the revival.

    My wife would love if they did a 3rd season. I wouldnt mind it.

    Sometimes I forget about all the anger against this show was about the story that went on forever. In my house first episode to last was like a 2 week time frame.

    I would definitely watch. I thought it was a good show, even if that was not the general consensus here.

    I watched both seasons over a couple of months though. If it comes back, I might watch it all over a short time span again.

    I'd watch a third season as well. Still better than most shows and the male lead makes it worth watching.

    Great news! I loved the second season and thought the show completely redeemed itself from the season one finale debacle. Hope the two lead actors also return.

    Would be interesting to see in what direction they go, but overall, it was better than a lot of "dramas" on TV and the characters were interesting.

    I hope they bring it back also. I enjoyed the style a lot. Yes it was a slower pace - but that was part of it's charm. That and the rain. ;)
