The Killing is adding actress-writer-director Amy Seimetz to its Season 3 call sheet as a series regular, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The indie darling (The Off Hours, Revenge for Jolly) will play Danielle Lutz, a hard-living, financially strapped single mother whose 14-year-old daughter goes missing.
Seimetz joins fellow Season 3 newbies Elias Koteas (Combat Hospital) and Max Fowler.
The new season of The Killing (which AMC ordered only months after cancelling the series) picks up a year after the events of the Season 2 finale and will focus on a single mystery which — unlike the Rosie riddle — will resolve over the course of 12 episodes.
Executive producer, writer and showrunner Veena Sud will return, as will lead actors Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman.
