The online television site Netflix will resurrect “The Killing” with a fourth and final limited season after AMC canceled the show amid flat ratings.
In a statement Friday, Netflix said it ordered a six-episode series finale of the crime drama, produced by Fox Television Studios and created by Veena Sud. Netflix already carries the three previous season online.
AMC canceled the crime drama last year only to change course and give it another shot. But season 3 ended with 1.5 million viewers, up only slightly from a year earlier, and AMC again decided to cancel.
