"After much deliberation, we've come to the difficult decision not to renew The Killing for a third season. AMC is incredibly proud of the show and is fortunate to have worked with such a talented team on this project, from showrunner Veena Cabreros Sud and our terrific partners at Fox Television Studios to the talented, dedicated crew and exceptional cast."
The show's producers at Fox Television Studios also released a statement that indicated they will try to shop this series to other networks.
"Fox Television Studios is extremely proud of The Killing, the extraordinary writing staff and crew, and what we believe is one of the best casts on television. We will proceed to try to find another home for the show."
The Killing starred Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman as Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder, the lead detectives on the Rosie Larson murder case. The show also starred Bill Campbell, Eric Ladin, Jamie Anne Allman, Michelle Forbes, and Brendan Sexton III.
