Luciana Carro, Ryan Robbins and Ty Olsson are all back this year, and RĂ©mi Aubuchon was still the showrunner for season 3.

Last month, he announced he was stepping down as head writer to focus on his first novel, which sounds pretty interesting.

The Killing season 3 premieres tonight

The Killing is back tonight at 8/7c on AMC with a few familiar faces appearing in the two-hour season premiere, "The Jungle"/"That You Fear The Most."

Aaron Douglas and Ryan Robbins will be recurring this season, and Ben Cotton will make an appearance in at least one episode.

Here is the setup, from Alan Sepinwall's review:

The new season picks up a little over a year after the last one concluded with the election, the arrest of Aunt Terry, and Mireille Enos' over-invested cop Sarah Linden walking away from Holder and the job. Holder is climbing the ladder at the Seattle PD with the advice of new partner Carl Reddick (Gregg Henry) when he catches the murder of a teenage prostitute who was killed in a manner very similar to a case that Linden worked years before with her old partner James Skinner (Elias Koteas). Linden and Skinner arrested their victim's husband, Ray Seward (Peter Sarsgaard), who sits on Death Row, a month away from his execution date. As the two ex-partners begin looking into the cases past and present, evidence begins to suggest that a serial killer is preying on young women.
