The season-two finale of AMC's The Killing drew 1.4 million viewers at 9 p.m. Sunday, down 22% from the 1.8 million that watched its premiere in April.

Overall, the drama's second season has been down over its first after the series' creator controversially decided not to answer The Killing's central question -- who offed Rosie Larsen -- in its season-one finale.

That question was finally answered in Sunday's finale, which averaged a 0.5 rating among persons 18 to 49, mostly on par with what the series has averaged this season.

AMC has not yet renewed The Killing for a third season.
