Killing Eve Season 3 Gets the Green Light!

-

Just a day after the premiere of Season 2, BBC America has given the green light to Killing Eve Season 3.  Starring Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw, the award-winning original series is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. for BBC America.

Killing Eve revolves around Eve (Oh), an MI6 operative, and psychopath assassin Villanelle (Comer) in this story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act.

Based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings, the third season will be executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas and Sandra Oh. Jeff Mevloin (Designated Survivor, Alias) also joins the team as executive producer.

The show will continue to pass the baton to a new female writing voice – season one lead writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge handed lead writing to Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Women) for season two, and British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) is coming aboard as lead writer and executive producer for season three.

“We love having this show and the brilliant Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw on our networks,” said Sarah Barnett, President, Entertainment Networks for AMC Networks. “Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emerald Fennell have delivered two addictively entertaining seasons. As we did last year, we’re renewing Killing Eve right out of the gate, now with Suzanne Heathcote as lead writer, as a sign of confidence – we adore this show as much as our fans do. Killing Eve doesn’t do anything in a templated way; we love giving opportunity to three genius women to make their mark.”

“It’s been such an exciting year for me on Killing Eve. I think it’s cool that this tradition has been built into this untraditional show. Inheriting some of Phoebe’s characters was a treat – I can’t wait to see what Suzanne does next,” said Emerald Fennell.

“I’m very excited that the Killing Eve baton is being passed onto another incredible writer for season 3. We can sleep soundly knowing these characters are safe in Suzanne Heathcote’s hilariously murderous hands,” said Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

“We are overjoyed at this show of love and passion for the show. And delighted to have another fierce woman at the writing helm. We have been so lucky,” said Sally Woodward Gentle.
