Peter Sarsgaard has joined the cast of AMC's dark crime series The Killing. We /the-killing-season-3-adds-max-fowler-as-a-series-regular/reported last week that Max Fowler has landed the role of the street-savvy teenager, Twitch.

The actor is set to play the reoccurring role of death-row inmate Tom Seward, whose date of execution is growing near. The character is described as a career criminal that was born into a life of crime. Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman are returning as Linden and Holder.

This new season picks up one year after Rosie Larson's case was solved. Linden has stepped away from policing, but is pulled back in when Holder lands a case with ties to her previous investigation.

Showrunner Veena Cabreros Sud is returning to produce and write this upcoming third season.
