The Killing will be back, but sans one major player.

Billy Campbell, who played Seattle city councilman-turned-paralyzed Mayor Darren Richmond, will not be returning for the AMC series’ third season, Variety reports.

Additionally, lead stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are very likely to be back on the case, but Brent Sexton and Michelle Forbes’ grieving parents will not appear in the upcoming season.

After being cancelled by the cable net in late July, the murder-mystery drama was resurrected in November through a potential deal with Netflix, in which the streaming service would share the production costs. The agreement gives AMC the right of first refusal on the new episodes.
