A&E Pulls ‘Those Who Kill,’ Gives ‘Bates Motel’ New Time Slot


A&E Pulls ‘Those Who Kill,’ Gives ‘Bates Motel’ New Time Slot


Well, that didn’t take long. ‘Those Who Kill,’ the new thriller starring Chloë Sevigny, has already been yanked from A&E’s schedule after only two episodes.

As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, ‘Those Who Kill’ has only been pulled from its original slot and has not been canceled. Apparently, A&E has faith that the show can find an audience. A new day and time for the series is said to be determined later this week.

With the network scoping out a new time slot for the thriller, ‘Bates Motel,’ starring Vera Farmiga and Freddie Highmore, has found a new vacancy. Effective immediately, ‘The Psycho’ prequel will air in ‘Those Who Kill’s original spot on Mondays at 10/9c. This also means that encore episodes of ‘Bates’ will air at 9/8c on Mondays, prior to new episodes.

The Sevigny-led drama’s Season 1 premiere earned 1.4 million viewers, while the second episode only garnered about half of that.

Based on the Danish crime series inspired by the bestselling work of author Elsebeth Egholm, A&E’s adaptation follows Sevigny’s recently promoted homicide detective Catherine Jensen, who tracks down serial killers. Her life’s work is motivated by her past, the disappearance of her brother and the suspicion that her stepfather is a serial killer. Immediately, she enlists forensic psychologist Thomas Schaeffer (James D’Arcy) to help her personal investigation into her stepfather.

‘Those Who Kill’ also stars James Morrison, Omid Abtahi, Kathy Baker and Bruce Davison.

I know this was not based on a real person, I know that Telivision is ment to entertain and I know what I like & don't like. This show was too slow and moody for most people and the dark undertones where far too real for TV. Not to mention that if a Police Officer acted in the same way as Cloe's character did, they would have either been fired or imprisoned. I watched both episodes and was not supprized at all that it was yanked and wouldn't be supprized if it gets cancled before it goes to air again.

Ok here I go again . . . I just do not understand why people didn't like this. Does TV have to always be so easy and so simple and childlike for it to draw big numbers. This is dark and moody and challenging and I just loved it, I really hope they find a way to get it back on.

Only 2 episodes is not enough to have the cast gel with the crew and with thief characters.

Very impressed with "Those Who Kill". Deep, dark and intriguing.

I hate TV...and I LOVE TV! i hate on it because of bs like this pulling "Those Who Kill" which i like(d?) very much. Nothing bad on Bates Motel I like it to. I used to have a personal rule to never watch a show until it had run at least a couple seasons and i could then binge on it. I made that rule because of the retarded cancellation of Deadwood (still pisses me off). Shame on me i slipped and fell...started watching things again. "alphas" "cult" "crossing lines" "copper" "ripper street" "hunted" oh FFS i'm moving to the mountain and to become a hermit with no tv.

I find nothing appealing about Bates Motel. Those Who Kill could have been better. Unfortunate.

No surprise with Those Who Kill. The original sucked as well.
