[TV] “Those Who Kill” Is Getting Dumped…

Those-Who-Kill

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.

    i’ll be watching the rest. i really didn’t think it was a bad show. i assume we can expect the rest of these eps to be heavily edited since it’s on Lifetime, right?

    Excited to watch the rest of the episodes but if this show didn’t do well on A&E I doubt it will do any better on Lifetime. Too bad :/

    I didn’t like it at all. Tons of bizarrely huge plot holes, stupid cliches, and poor acting (from everyone except Chloe Sevigny).
