“You’re not allowed to dive into depths and linger on everything [because] you’re afraid they’ll change the channel.”

Kinnaman’s co-star Eric Laden (Jamie Wright) adds that television viewers have a sufficient attention span to follow The Killing’s multiple plot threads.

“I hold audiences to a much higher standard,” he explains. The Killing continues on Wednesday, October 24 th at 9:30pm on 3.

“We’re following three storylines here, [focusing on] Sarah the detective (Mireille Enos), Mitch (Michelle Forbes) and Stan the parent, and then Darren Richmond the mayor (Billy Campbell),” The Killing star Brent Sexton, who plays the victim’s grieving father Stan, reveals.

“There’s these little clever things that are so human, that lead to assumptions, that lead to these actions, that lead to these consequences.”

The actor also suggests that individual episodes will not be standalone and encouraged viewers to watch the entire season.

“It’s never wrapped-up at the end of the episode,” he says. “There’s always questions. [You’re] always searching for answers.” Make sure not to miss the premiere of this thrilling new series when The Killing premieres on Wednesday, September 5 th at 9:30pm on 3.
