Linden (Mireille Enos) stares at the Seattle skyline from across the Sound in the first poster released to promote the fourth and final season of detective series “The Killing.”
“The Past Can’t Be Washed Away” is the season’s tagline, referring to the emotional ending of season 3 wherein Linden killed her ex-partner and potential love interest James Skinner (Elias Koteas) after he revealed himself as the latest serial killer Linden and Holder (Joel Kinnaman) were tracking.
But there’s no time to rest for the weary detectives, as in season 4 — airing on Netflix for the first time after being dropped by AMC — they’re tasked with solving the murder of an entire family. The only survivor of the massacre is Kyle, the teenage son, who attends an elite military school. He becomes the focus of their investigation.
The final season of “The Killing” airs on Netflix on Aug. 1. The first poster is below.
