Carolyn loses her cool in new Killing Eve Season 3 teasers
BBC America has released new character teasers for the upcoming third season of their critically-acclaimed comedy spy thriller Killing Eve, featuring new footage of Villanelle and Eve as well as Fiona Shaw’s Carolyn Martens, who is slowly losing her famous cool and calm demeanor. Starring award-winning actress Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, the series will now return two weeks earlier than originally planned on Sunday, April 12 . Also featuring Owen McDonell’s Niko, you check out the teasers below!
Based on the novellas by Luke Jennings, BBCA’s Killing Eve centers on two women; Eve (Sandra Oh) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Jodie Comer) is an elegant, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. Killing Eve topples the typical spy-action thriller as these two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.
Killing Eve left off with an explosive cliffhanger at the end of season two, as Carolyn seemingly betrayed Eve (Sandra Oh) before Villanelle (Jodie Comer) shot Eve, leaving her for dead in Rome. In the next season of Killing Eve, Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead, See) will be replacing Emerald Fennell as the new showrunner and lead writer which is in line with the show’s tradition of passing the baton to a new female writing voice.
Season 3 continues to follow the lives of Villanelle (Comer), the assassin without a job, and Eve (Oh), Eve, the ex-MI6 operative hiding in plain sight. All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances, and perhaps a share of their souls.
Joining Oh, Comer, and Shaw in Season 3 are Harriet Walter (Succession), Danny Sapani (Harlots), Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Camille Cottin (Call My Agent), Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen), Raj Bajaj (A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding), Turlough Convery (Ready Player One), Pedja Bjelac (Harry Potter) and Evgenia Dodina (One Week and a Day).
Killing Eve is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd and executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Jeff Melvoin and Damon Thomas with Sandra Oh co-executive producing. Nige Watson serves as series producer.
Seasons 1 & 2 had already earned 12 Emmy nominations and 4 Golden Globe nominations with lead stars Sandra Oh winning her second Golden Globe Award and Jodie Comer winning her first Emmy Award, both for Best Actress in a Drama Series.
