The final season of "The Killing" premieres Friday, Aug. 1 on Netflix and this time it really is the end for the crime drama. "The Killing," starring Mireille Enos, has survived two cancellations since premiering on AMC in 2011.

Netflix will make all six episodes of the fourth season available for streaming at 12:00 a.m Pacific time/ 3 a.m. Eastern time on your computer, mobile device, iPad or any other Netflix-enabled device. 

If you previously followed the show on AMC and don't have Netflix, an account will cost you $7.99 a month to stream the show. However a one month free trial is currently available.

Despite the show's name, it has proved difficult to kill the crime series. AMC originally cancelled "The Killing" in 2012, but ultimately renewed the show for a third season after renegotiating with Fox Television Networks. AMC again killed the show after the third season, but two months later "The Killing" was saved by Netflix, who agreed to pick up the show for it's fourth and final season.

Season 3 of "The Killing" ended with the conclusion of Linden (Enos) and Holden's (Joel Kinnamen) search for the person responsible for a string of murders connected to the Rosie Larson case that began the series in Season 1. Season 4 will deal with the fallout over Linden's shooting of a murder suspect, as well the search for a serial killer targeting boys at an all-boys military school.
