Netflix Offers New Seasons of Established Shows
Netflix, which surged in popularity for its convenient movies by mail service, also moved into the digital streaming world, offering many movies as well as television shows. Netflix as of late has now moved into creating its own shows as well as picking up or renewing shows that have ended.
A prime example being the show 'Arrested Development'. Netflix renewed 15 more episodes of season 4 of Arrested Development exclusively for their brand.
Other original shows exclusive to Netflix include 'Orange is the New Black' and 'House of Cards'.
What is 'The Killing' About?
'The Killing' is about two homicide detectives, Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder. The first two seasons of the show focused on the Rosie Larsen case, and the third season is about a new set of murders after detective Sarah Linden is no longer with Seattle Police as a homicide detective.
The show, 'The Killing' is filmed in Vancouver and is produced by Fox Television Studios.
