Sweet Nancy, y’all! It’s still three weeks until my birthday and the TV Gods have already started gifting me. Yesterday, we got word that AMC greenlit Hell on Wheels for a fourth season, and today, Netflix, revived The Killing for a final six-episode fourth season airing in 2014. (If we find out in the coming days that we’re getting a fifth season of Haven, you’ll find me in a happy little ball over in the corner.) Netflix was integral to the show coming back last summer, and they stepped up big time to give the fans and the characters proper closure.

Here’s what the Netflix press release had to say:

“The rich, serialized storytelling in ‘The Killing’ thrives on Netflix, and we believe that it is only fitting to give Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder a proper send off,” said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix. “We are looking forward to offering fans – both existing and new – a series that we know is perfectly suited for on-demand viewing.”

David Madden, president, Fox Television Studios, commented, “It’s a true testament to ‘The Killing’ creator Veena Sud, and the stellar cast led so compellingly by Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, that fans remained so passionate about the show. We’re gratified that our partners at Netflix recognized this, and are giving us the opportunity to complete the story in a way that will be satisfying to our loyal audience.”

Y’all know how much love I have for this show, and how strong I felt the third season was, so I am thrilled that we’re getting six more hours with Linden and Holder (and most especially Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, who are doing just fine making movies). You can catch the first three seasons of The Killing now on Netflix.
