'The Killing' next day streaming for UK, Ireland Netflix subscribers

While the third season of AMC's "The Killing" is set to premiere soon for US audiences via the cable network, it appears UK and Ireland audiences won't have to wait much longer either.

The Killing

It's no secret that AMC's decision to renew the previously canceled mystery series arose in part because of the VOD deal reached with streaming giant Netflix. While US subscribers will be able to stream the full third season just three months after its run on cable, UK and Ireland subscribers will gain next day access to the new episodes.

"We're thrilled to be bringing season three 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 crime drama's third season will pick up a year after the closing of the Rosie Larsen murder case which the first two seasons revolved around. Mireille Enos' Sarah Linden is drawn back to her old line of work when her former partner Stephen Holder (Joel Kinnaman) is confronted with a gruesome string of murders tied to one of Linden's old investigations.

The new season of "The Killing" will premiere on AMC on June 2nd, while UK and Ireland Netflix subscribers can access new episodes beginning June 3rd.

No. I personally think US TV and US shows are the best. No doubt, and no country can even come close to making something as good as the american shows. So, I watch now entirely US shows with a very few exceptions. But that's my opinion anyway.

About The Killing. I just can't wait to watch season 3. Serial killer plot seems an awesome idea.

Although The Killing is an entirely different show by now, so personally I'm just enjoying it for what it is and not trying to constantly compare it to the Danish original "Forbrydelsen".


A tiny bit worried about how season three is gonna turn out though :/

And yet they can view the far superior Danish originals already. Don't you just hate it when the US guts everything which resonates in the original series?
