Watch your backs, people of Seattle. There's likely another mysterious murder in your city's fictional future.

With a week to go before the Season 1 finale -- and presumed reveal of Rosie Larson's murderer -- AMC has given the green light to another season of "The Killing."

Many wondered about the future of "The Killing," given its modest ratings (averaging 2.2 million of late) and restrictive plot, but the Danish series its based on, "Forbrydelsen," is entering its third season -- and third murder investigation.

"The Killing" joins "Mad Men," "Breaking Bad" and "The Walking Dead" as another AMC original to make it past its freshman series. "Rubicon" is the only AMC series to date to be canceled (something we're still sort of bummed about).
