Canceled AMC Drama Looks to Netflix, DirecTV to Keep Show Alive

Aug 23, 2012  •  Post A Comment

A canceled AMC drama series isn’t dead yet, with producer Fox TV Studios in discussions with Netflix and DirecTV to keep “The Killing” alive, reports TVLine.com.

A representative for Netflix declined to comment, while a DirecTV rep said, "We do take a look at everything that is available, but we haven’t made any decisions this summer in regards to new programming.”

Netflix, which is working on a revival of the cult comedy series "Arrested Development," earlier this year was considering buying the canceled shows "The River" and "Terra Nova." DirecTV has rescued at-risk shows including "Damages."

  1. The Killing was superlative TV.
    This would be sensational news! Put aside the controversy about the season one false ending, please. This was a brilliant show, and taking the extra episodes to round out the characters, and plot, was very wise.
    In fact, for the many fans of The Killing the conclusion was just superb, a touching, logical, sad, memorable finale.
    Let’s hope the producers can persuade the two stars (talk about talent on TV!) to return as they are embarking on major film careers.
    Come on Netflix, go for it DirecTV!
