Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman will get to solve another crime as it has been confirmed that their show The Killing is being resurrected.

The actors played cops hunting for the killer of a teenage girl in the US show, and although it debuted to critical acclaim it ended up facing a backlash from viewers after it failed to reveal who the culprit was at the end of series one, and in July network AMC announced it would not be making a third season.

However, AMC has now announced that The Killing will be back after all, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

AMC president Charlie Collier said: "The Killing from day one has been a truly original take on the crime drama. We're so pleased to welcome it back for another season."

Mireille and Joel are both set to return, though some of the cast members, including Billy Campbell and Michelle Forbes, will not be back.

The new series of the show will be set a year after the events of season two and will see Sarah Linden (Mireille) and Stephen Holder (Joel) working on a new case. It's thought it will be broadcast later this year.

So far there is no word on early reports that Netflix would be part of a deal to revive the programme.
