"The Killing," which was very nearly offed after its second season (and was, but that's another story), has a date with the audience: June 2 for a two hour launch. AMC just announced, and here are some details (please head to the jump for date and time of "Blood").

The new season, which stars Mireille Enos (Sarah Linden) and Joel Kinnaman (Stephen Holder), along with new cast members Peter Sarsgaard, Elias Koteas and Amy Seimetz, is executive produced by series creator Veena Sud, and will focus on a new case, which will be resolved over the course of 10n episodes, ending with a gripping two-hour finale. Season three begins one year after the close of the “Rosie Larsen” case (the focus of the series’ first two seasons) with Sarah Linden (Enos) no longer working as a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder's (Kinnaman) search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she'd left behind.

And as promised, "True Blood" -- returning June 16 at 9, for 10 episodes. Not many more details, but HBO did suggest you head to the Facebook page for some additional information (
