'The Killing' might get a third season after all

the-killing-207.jpgAMC is considering un-canceling its series "The Killing," with an assist from Netflix.

The cable channel dropped the polarizing and marginally rated drama in July after airing two seasons. At the time, AMC called it a "difficult decision" while producer Fox Television Studios vowed to look for another home for the show.

The studio's efforts appear to have paid off. Deadline reports AMC got back on board after hearing a "strong" pitch for Season 3 from executive producer Veena Sud.

A deal isn't finalized yet, nor are details of how AMC and Netflix would share "The Killing." Deadline says AMC will probably keep rights to the first run.

The show's regular cast remains under contract, so that won't be a hurdle to restarting production.
