Netflix sets 'The Killing's' final-season premiere

"The Killing," the cop series that wouldn't stay dead, will return for its final season on Netflix on Aug. 1. For those who remain skeptical, this is really the end.

The series, which began on AMC in 2011, stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman as Seattle homicide detectives whose lives play second fiddle to their all-consuming murder investigations that span entire seasons. 

"The Killing" was canceled after its second season, but Fox Television Studios sought out a deal with Netflix, prompting AMC to share costs and agree to air a third season.
