As Deadline reported this afternoon, AMC and Netflix are nearing a deal to bring THE KILLING back to life following its cancellation last summer. The arrangement would make THE KILLING a collaborative endeavor for the two companies, with AMC airing the show's third season first.

After opting out of renewing the thriller series for a third season earlier this fall, AMC shopped the project to various production companies, each passing. According to Deadline, a strong pitch by series developer Veena Sud sparked the greenlight. Series regulars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are set to return, with others in talks.

THE KILLING originally premiered in April 2011, becoming one of the most talked about - and watched - new shows of that season. Its second season did not experience the same acclaim or high level of ratings.

AMC's original stories include "Mad Men," "Breaking Bad," "The Walking Dead," "The Killing" and "Hell on Wheels." AMC further demonstrates its commitment to the art of storytelling with AMC's Docu-Stories, a slate of unscripted original series, as well as curated movie franchises like AMC's Can't Get Enough and AMC's Crazy About. Available in more than 96 million homes (Source: Nielsen Media Research), AMC is owned and operated by AMC Networks Inc. and its sister networks include IFC, Sundance Channel and WE tv.
