'The Killing' final season gets Netflix release date

Mireille Eno stars in "The Killing."

Story highlights

  • The series will return August 1
  • There are only six episodes
  • "The Killing" has been canceled twice
The final season — the real final season this time — of "The Killing" has a release date.
Netflix will unleash the last season of the murky, rainy crime drama on Aug. 1. The final fourth-season batch is only six episodes, so this is one binge you can easily polish off in a single night.
As we've previously noted, The Killing, which stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman as Seattle detectives, was AMC's true zombie show — a series that was canceled twice and then revived twice. More details about its improbably resurrection.
