Killing Eve renewed for Season 4 ahead of Season 3 premiere
BBC America has renewed its award-winning thriller Killing Eve for a fourth season ahead of the series’ Season 3 premiere this spring, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“How could we not have massive confidence in Killing Eve? It has won big in every major award show and is the highest growing show on U.S. television for six years,” said Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios. “The reason for this series’ emphatic embrace is the brilliant women who breathed it into being: Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emerald Fennell, Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw and its fairy godmother, executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle. Season three lead writer Suzanne Heathcote takes Eve, Villanelle and Carolyn to places more thrilling, twisted and surprising than ever. Our addicted fans will not be disappointed.”
The series 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.
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).
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.
Season 2 earned nine Emmy Award nominations including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for both Oh and Comer.
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.
