The AMC instant cult classic show "The Killing" has been canceled again by the network after its third season. It was announced on Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2013, that the network that brought back the series after cancelling it once, wouldn't be bringing it back again despite it actually getting even better in its third season.
"We have made the difficult decision not to move forward with a fourth season of The Killing," AMC said in a statement on Tuesday. "We want to thank our great partners at Fox Television Studios, creator Veena Sud, an extraordinary cast and the dedicated fans who watched."
After the second season of "The Killing" ended, AMC took it off the air and said it was dead in the water. Fans spoke up and hoped that someone else would pick up the series, but AMC changed its course and decided to bring it back on their own.
Now, it is gone again.
Season three brought about a whole new mystery case and the brilliant addition of guest star Peter Sarsgaard, but it wasn't enough to give "The Killing" a fourth season. Ratings slowly went down as season three went on, and the season finale took in 1.5 million.
That was more than the 1.4 million the season finale of season two garnered.
Deadline first reported of the second cancelling of "The Killing," and now there is no word as to whether it will get its third breath of life.
