Star of AMC Drama Series Won't Return for Third Season -- Other Cast Members Are Also Out of the Lineup Variety
One of the stars of an AMC drama series, which is readying for its third season, won’t be back on the show, Variety.com reports.
Billy Campbell, who portrayed Mayor Darren Richmond on "The Killing," is leaving the show, according to the report. The show was canceled by AMC in late May, but the cable network later changed its mind and revived the show, the story notes.
Actors Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, who play a pair of Seattle officers, are likely to return, the piece adds. However, Brent Sexton and Michelle Forbes, who played the parents of the slain girl, won't be returning to the program.
Talks are still under way with Netflix about assisting with a portion of the production costs, allowing the Internet company to stream the series after it airs on AMC, the piece adds.
