FIRST LOOK! ‘The Killing’ Season 3 is coming!

Linden and Holder are back!!

‘The Killing’ is making it’s return on AMC on June 2!

In the photo above, Mireille Enos‘ Sarah Linden and Joel Kinnaman‘s Stephen Holder stare stalwartly into the distance while a group of street kids (new cast members Cate Sproule, Max Fowler, Julia Sarah Stone and Bex Taylor Klaus) hang out in the background.

We know that the revived drama will pick up a year after the Rosie Larsen case closes, when Holder’s search for a runaway girl leads to a string of murders related to an investigation from Linden’s past. Might someone in this blurry group of teens have some insight into the newest mystery?

I was beyond sad when I heard ‘The Killing’ had been canceled (although I shared everyone’s frustrations with the show.) First season was out-of-this-world good…. and then the finale, ugh. Then a whole season 2 was painful. It wasn’t the actor’s fault – they just got reallllllly bad scripts. Hopefully things have gone back to the way they were in season 1 – and season 3 will bring renewed spirit to the show!

FIRST LOOK! ‘Mad Men’ Season 6 in black and white!

We’re finally getting our first look at season 6 of ‘Mad Men’, in black and white! Tell me this doesn’t get you all excited! I’m happy to see Betty back in shape, no more ridiculous fat suit! I can’t wait to see what happens next!!

In case you thought ‘Mad Men’ might be tiring of its peerlessly stylish production values as it gets set for Series 6, these images, just released, should reassure you.

Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and his acolytes are all looking at their suave, urbane best in these black and white shots, with the girls looking as feminine and shapely as always.

And, as usual, the ladies seem to be involuntarily bound to attend to The Don, all but a pensive-looking Peggy (Elisabeth Moss), while the gentlemen continue to plot their way around New York’s most dynamic advertising agency.

Jon Hamm spoke to HuffPostUK last year, when he told us, “It’s lovely to be part of the success ‘Mad Men’ has been, there’s no denying that – it’s been the singular thing I could point to in my life that I’m most proud of, from a work-related standpoint – and it continues to be a source of pride, and a challenge.

“I love going to work on the show, and I’m incredibly happy to get to it, and the fact that it’s been successful and continues to be, is something that I can say, I’m just very lucky.”

‘The Killing’ is coming back!!

Back in July, AMC announced it was canceling ‘The Killing’ after it’s second season was incredibly disappointing. Fans and critics criticized producers for an arc that “routinely saw the narrative spin its wheels”.

Less than a month after that, rumor has it both Netflix and DirecTV were interested in scooping up the show. Now AMC wants back in the game, and wants to team with Netflix to make the third season happen.

 AMC has now set a late May 2013 bow for the third season, with development starting imminently. While Netflix’s involvement isn’t yet confirmed — the deal hasn’t been finalized — it does seem as if AMC will be partnering with somebody to help share the costs, which seems to be the reason “The Killing” is coming back at all. As for the storyline, there’s no word yet, however, Joel Kinnaman and Mireille Enos last we heard were apparently both already signed to return (though Variety suggests this may not be the case, but we can’t really see the show happening without them) while Michelle Forbes and Brent Sexton may not come back. Billy Campbell is also uncertain at the moment.

Either way, “The Killing” really has to come back ferociously and with some purpose if it wants to survive past the third season. As we wrote about season two, “[it] soon turned into an irritating jerk around, resulting in a kind of blue balls for the audience.” Hopefully the writers and showrunner Veena Sud have heard the criticism and are ready to have this show live up to its potential.

I’m so happy to hear this show may not be dead after all. I absolutely LOVED season 1, like many of you, but I agree, season 2 was pretty ridiculous. It just drug on waaaaaaaaay too long, and I don’t think they needed two seasons to finally tell us who killed Rosie Larson. I think it’s an amazing show, and if they could focus on 1 case per season, I think they’d be doing good.

I’m just happy the show is coming back! Time to redeem yourselves!

Mad Men’s Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel are dating in real life!

Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel are dating in real life!

On Mad Men, Vincent’s character Pete Campbell fell for Alexis’ character, a depressed housewife, and the two had an affair. Looks like they connected off screen as well, as last night the couple made their first public appearance as a couple!


The couple made their red carpet debut last night at the launch of The Macallan Masters of Photography collection, featuring photographs by Annie Leibovitz in New York.

Alexis was seen getting friendly with her on-screen lover on a flight from New York to Los Angeles back in June.

A source revealed to gossip site Crushable: ‘They came over to the gate right as I was boarding and I saw him first.

‘His hair is fuller and he’s got a beard, but I recognized him right away.

‘Then he walked over and a girl with him sat down and it was Rory Gilmore.

‘They are not sitting in first class but him right in front of her in middle seats. Guess they booked last minute.

‘He was leaning over the back of his seat talking to her and leaned over and kissed her.’

This is the first high profile relationship among the cast of the show since it began in 2007.

I finally watched the last season of ‘Mad Men’ (never before have I been so behind on TV shows!), and while I liked it, I definitely don’t think it was a very good season. The last several episodes were pretty good, but other than that – I thought it was kind of a dud season. I didn’t like Betty’s “fat” character, and I’m starting to realize I don’t like the show as much when Don and Betty aren’t together. Not a huge fan of Don’s new wife. I don’t know, the new season is going to really have to pick up the pace for me.
