AMC addresses outrage over THE KILLING finale.

“I think the major takeaway for us is that we certainly would have taken a different approach to managing the expectations (of the Season 1 finale). It was never our intention to mislead…We didn’t manage the expectations the way they should have been managed.”

“Viewers will definitely find out who killed Rosie Larsen in Season 2.”

AMC senior vice president Joel Stillerman speaking to television critics on Friday.

The marketing for the series revolved around this phrase “Who Killed Rosie Larsen?” and they did not think folks would be upset when that question was not answered? They were very coy throughout the season and got burned in the end. Personally, I don’t think simply promising to wrap up the season ONE story in the second season is going to bring folks back.

I said before, part of the problem was that the show was not as good as it could have been. It dragged on and they failed to flesh out the characters to the point where most would feel a connection with them. Midway through the season, it felt as though we were simply treading water until the final stretch of episodes.
