Deadline reports both good news and bad news for fans of A&E‘s new drama series “Those Who Kill,” which was pulled two weeks ago after two low-rated airings.
The good news is that the series is coming back on the air staring this coming Sunday. The bad news is that it will air on A&E sibling LMN TV (aka Lifetime Movie Network), which they explain is not exactly a vote of confidence to the show by A&E Networks brass who kept the announcement of the series’ relaunch super low-key with a post on “Those Who Kill‘s” Facebook page.
In what looks like a burn-off run (don’t get hooked), new episodes of “Those Who Kill” will air at 10 PM Sundays. The first original episode this Sunday will be preceded from 8-10 PM by rebroadcasts of the show’s first two hours that already premiered on A&E.
The A&E debut of “Those Who Kill” starring Chloe Sevigny drew a soft 1.4 million viewers, down from the series debuts of A&E’s “Bates Motel” (3 million) and “Longmire” (4.1 million) and holding onto less than half of its “Bates Motel” lead-in.
