AMC, Fox TV Studios and The Killing developer/executive producer Veena Sud are putting the team back together in anticipation of a formal green light for a third season of the mystery series to air on AMC and Netflix. Dawn Prestwich and Nicole Yorkin, who served as co-executive producers in the first and second season, are expected to return as executive producers, and have started working with Sud on stories for Season 3.
Fox TV Studios already has the cast — including breakout stars Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman — locked in for Season 3, which made a resurrection of the series, cancelled by AMC in July, an easier proposition. The show has been talking to key behind-the-scene auspices, including Prestwich and Yorkin, to return, as Season 3 is eying a February production start. Veteran TV writer-producers Prestwich and Yorkin, who won a WGA Award for writing the pilot for CBS’ The Education Of Max Bickford, are with ICM Partners and Gendler & Kelly.
