AMC orders another round of its crime drama 'The Killing'
Based on a hit Danish series, "The Killing" has scored high ratings by AMC's standards. The premiere back in April averaged 2.7 million total viewers, according to the Nielsen Co. More recently, it has settled down to the 2 million or so mark. The series is overseen by executive producer Veena Sud, formerly of CBS' procedural "Cold Case." The network ordered 13 episodes for the second season; the first season wraps on Sunday.
The producers "have shown us how much room there is to elevate the crime drama with this series," AMC senior vice president Joel Stillerman said in a statement. "A lot of loyal fans made a huge investment in this show this season, and we are thrilled to be able to bring it back next season for all involved."
