There’s gonna be more Killing!

AMC is ordering a second season of its critically acclaimed series Rain & Murder The Killing.

The first season was about the murder of a teenage girl and was based off a popular Danish series.

The two-hour premiere drew 4.7 million viewers (including encore airings). The show’s ratings have dipped quite a bit since then, now averaging about 2.2 million — still a healthy number for AMC. This marks four out of five AMC dramas to make it to a second season (only Rubicon has been cancelled).
