Holder and Linden's biggest foe in The Killing's final season? Each other!

It looks like the fan-favorite partners will be going head-to-head when the series returns from the dead (again!) on Friday, Aug. 1, thanks to Netflix. 

Picking up immediately where season three ended, Holder (Joel Kinnaman) and Linden (Mireille Enos) dealing with the fallout from their actions. You know, killing season three's big bad, the Pied Piper serial killer. And tension seems to be seriously high between the duo, with Linden struggling to move on, while Holder is intent on covering up their crime. 

Netflix has just released the first trailer for The Killing's fourth and final season, which sets up the new dynamic between the old partners and previews their new case...

After a seemingly perfect family is murdered, with only the son, Kyle (Tyler Ross), surviving (though he was shot in the head), Holder and Linden begin to investigate the all-boys military academy where Kyle attends. Running  the school? Colonel Margaret Rayne, played by Joan Allen, who will go toe-to-toe with Linden.

Also set to star in the fourth season are Gregg Henry, Sterling Beaumon and Levi Meaden

The Killing ran for three seasons on AMC. Canceled after its second season, the network had a change of heart and brought the series back for a third season before canceling it again. Netflix then resurrected Veena Sud's drama, but made clear that it would be the final season. For real this time. 

"The rich, serialized storytelling in The Killing thrives on Netflix, and we believe that it is only fitting to give Sarah Linden and Stephen Holder proper send off," Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix, said in a statement. 

The Killing premieres Friday, Aug. 1 on Netflix. The first three seasons are currently available to stream on Netflix.
