Against all odds, AMC's grim cop drama The Killing was saved from cancellation last year by Netflix, which stepped in to fund six more episodes designed to give the series a definitive ending. Now, fans can finally get a look at what Netflix promises is The Killing's final season.
Based on this trailer, The Killing isn't shaking up its formula as it glides to a finish: Detectives Linden (Mireille Enos) and Holder (Joel Kinnaman) are still in Seattle — and this time, they're part of a cover-up in the wake of season three's finale. "We've just got to keep our stories straight," says Holder. "No one's going to find out. No one's gotta know what we did."
The Killing's final season premieres on Netflix on August 1. If you're intrigued, the first three seasons are available on Netflix right now. --Scott Meslow
