AMC on 'The Killing' Finale Backlash: We Should've Managed Viewers' Expectations


Responding to criticism regarding the unsolved question in the season 1 finale, the network president Charlie Collier says, 'It was never our intention to misguide the viewer.'

Having tuned in the whole episodes to find out who killed Rosie Larsen, loyal viewers of "The Killing" might have been disappointed with the cliffhanger in season 1 finale. Following criticism directed at the show, AMC president and general manager Charlie Collier has spoken up, "It was never our intention to misguide the viewer."

Still, Collier admitted that "we underestimated the passion of viewers have for closure within this season." He further told Entertainment Weekly, "The audience has an important voice, we heard them and don't take them for granted."

Although he realized the first season's ending did not fulfill people's expectations, Collier insisted he would have not changed the closure. "I stand by [showrunner] Veena Sud, and risk-taking is what we do; cliffhangers are a staple of TV and a huge part of mysteries," he stated, before adding "If I could do anything differently, it would be to manage expectations."

A critically acclaimed new series, "The Killing" is based on Danish television series "Forbrydelsen" ("The Crime"). It follows the police investigation into Rosie Larsen's murder. But instead of solving the case, the ultimate episode of the first season rolled the story into next season. It plans to introduce a new mystery at the start of season 2 and then solve the Larsen case.
