- Each Episode of Season 3 Will Be Available To Members In the UK and Ireland Within a Week of Its U.S. Television Premiere
BEVERLY HILLS, California, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Netflix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) and Fox Television Studios (FTVS) today announced Season 3 of fan favourite The Killing will be available exclusively to members in the UK and Ireland. Each episode will be available within one week after its U.S. premiere, making The Killing available to members much sooner than other popular American TV programmes. In addition, beginning in May, the complete Season 2 of The Killing will be available for members to watch instantly.
"We're excited to offer our members each new episode of Season 3 of The Killing within a week of its U.S. premiere on television," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix. "The Killing is a terrific serial drama and we know our members love these high-quality programmes."
David Madden, president of Fox Television Studios, said, "Our agreement with Netflix played an extremely significant part in the studio's strategy that enabled us to bring The Killing back for a third season. Our showrunner, Veena Sud, has plunged our principals into new and dangerous worlds, with wicked twists and a climactic end-of-season resolution, and our acclaimed cast, including Mireille Enos, Joel Kinnaman and new cast member Peter Sarsgaard, are already thrillingly bringing it to life. We are delighted to be in business with Netflix to deliver Season 3, as well as past seasons of The Killing to a broader audience worldwide."
The critically acclaimed drama, based on the Danish series Forbrydelsen, follows various murder investigations led by homicide detectives Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) and Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman). After the close of the Rosie Larsen case, covered over the first two seasons of the series, Season 3 picks up a year later, with Linden no longer a detective. When ex-partner Holder's search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind.
