AMC's "The Killing" gets season 3 premiere date

It's official! "The Killing" is really, for sure, undoubtedly coming back from the dead.

Yeah, we know they said it was coming back, but there was always that sneaking doubt in the back of our minds that they could pull the plug again. But now that is has a summer start date, we can put our suspicions to rest.

AMC announced Friday that the third season will launch Sunday, June 2 at 8 p.m. with a two-hour premiere. The 12-episode third season of "The Killing" will introduce a new case and new cast members including Peter Sarsgaard and Elias Koteas, among others.

The new season will be set a year after the Rosie Larsen investigation has been closed, and Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) is no longer a detective. However, she is drawn back in when Stephen Holder's (Joel Kinnaman) search for a runaway girl leads him to a string of murders that connects to a previous investigation she worked on.

"I am grateful to AMC, Fox TV Studios and Netflix for their commitment to the show and their efforts in bringing The Killing back to air," creator/executive producer Veena Sud said. "I'm also thrilled to be working with our incredible writing team as we continue to explore the lives of Sarah and Holder, who, like so many real-life detectives, grapple with the consequences to their own lives of a no-holds-barred immersion in the world of a homicide investigation."

Let the killing begin.
