AMC has killed "The Killing."

The cable network has axed the crime drama after two seasons. The series started to great acclaim from critics, but many fans turned against the show after it failed in its first season to resolve the investigation of the murder of Rosie Larsen, which fans felt they had been implicitly promised.

"After much deliberation, we've come to the difficult decision not to renew 'The Killing' for a third season," AMC said in a statement.

"The Killing" marks a rare failure for AMC, which has embarked on an aggressive expansion into original programming in recent years. The network also airs the critical favorites "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad."
