-- Each Episode of Season 3 Will Be Available To Members In the UK and Ireland The Day After Its U.S. Television Premiere
BEVERLY HILLS, California, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Netflix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) and Fox Television Studios (FTVS) today announced that Season 3 of compelling drama, The Killing will be available exclusively to members in the UK and Ireland starting 3 June. Each episode will be available every Monday - the day after its U.S. broadcast - making The Killing available to members much sooner than other popular American TV programmes. Seasons 1 and 2 are currently available for members to watch instantly.
"We're thrilled to be bringing Season 3 of The Killing exclusively to our members in the UK and Ireland," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. "The Killing is an incredibly gripping fan favorite so we wanted to make each new episode available as soon as possible."
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.
