The Killing Season 3 coming exclusively to Netflix

Netflix has announced that it will be exclusively airing season 3 of The Killing in UK and Ireland, starting June 3.

Season 3 of crime drama The Killing will be exclusive available to Netflix members in the UK and Ireland from June 3, after Netflix announced a deal with Fox Television Studios.

A new episode will be made available every Monday, the day after it airs in the US. Netflix says it means viewers can get access to the series much quicker than other American TV shows on the service.

The movie and TV series streaming specialist already offers the first two seasons to its subscribers, but will now be able to offer the third series as well.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing Season 3 of The Killing exclusively to our members in the UK and Ireland,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at Netflix. “The Killing is an incredibly gripping fan favourite so we wanted to make each new episode available as soon as possible.”

Netflix has already treated its viewers to several exclusives this year, including the fourth series of previously cancelled comedy, Arrested Development.

 All fifteen episodes of Arrested Development Season 4 became available on Netflix on Sunday, May 26, with Twitter exploding as viewers binge watched all of them in one sitting.

In an attempt to differentiate itself from Amazon owned rival LoveFilm, Netflix has been increasing its line of exclusive content including a partnership with Matrix creators the Wachowski brothers to bring a new science-fiction thriller to its subscribers, Sense8.

In February, Netflix also announced that its own original series, House of Cards, had quickly become its most watched show. The first original content produced by the streaming service proved a huge success, which is lucky for them seeing as it cost $100 million to secure two series of the political drama.
