Season 3 of The Killing will begin production in Vancouver on February 25. It starts where Season 2 left off with Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder. A year after closing the Rosie Larsen case, Sarah Linden is no longer a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder's search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind.

Season 3 of The Killing will have a 2-hour premiere on June 2, 2013 at 8:00 p.m ET/PT.
