Although AMC has yet to officially resurrect The Killing, TVLine has learned that production on Season 3 is set to begin on Feb. 25. (Not bad for a show that’s still technically cancelled, eh?) What’s more, we now know an awful lot about the new characters by whom Linden and Holder will be surrounded. For instance:
Tom Seward is a thirtysomething Neanderthal on death row for the murder of his wife. In what seems likely to be his last month on earth, he takes a (perhaps ill-advised) stroll down memory lane, tripping on the secrets he’s left behind like a trail of bloody bread crumbs.
Danette Lutz, in her late 30s, is probably the worst mother since Mo’Nique in Precious. How bad is she? She could easily forget she even is a mother until her 15-year-old, Kallie, goes missing.
Bullet is a 16-year-old tough guy who looks out for all the local street girls. But there’s more to him than meets the eye: Most significantly, he’s… a she.
Alton Singleterry is a Machiavellian young gangbanger who seems to think that death row is party to which he can RSVP no.
Ed Skinner is Linden’s old partner, a middle-aged Dudley Do-Right whose record is spotless, save for a brief extramarital fling with a co-worker. (Could that co-worker have been Linden? Hmm… )
Tiny is the underage female hooker to whom Bullet’s heart belongs. The only trouble is (well, the only trouble aside from her being an underage hooker!), Tiny’s crazy about someone else.
Twitch is yet another JV hooker, a wannabe star with a rap sheet that’s longer than he is tall.
Your thoughts? Will you give the new Killing a try? Or are you still pissed about Season 1?
