Killing Eve Season 3 Starts Filming and New Cast Members Added

-

BBC AMERICA‘s smash hit thriller Killing Eve has begun production on its third season. The series, nominated for nine 2019 Emmy Awards including Outstanding Drama Series, is welcoming Dame Harriet Walter (Succession, The Crown) and Danny Sapani (Harlots, The Crown) to the cast.

Killing Eve, produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd., left off (spoiler ahead!) with an explosive cliffhanger at the end of season two, as Carolyn (Emmy nominee Fiona Shaw) seemingly betrayed Eve (Emmy nominee Sandra Oh) before Villanelle (Emmy nominee Jodie Comer) shot Eve, leaving her for dead in Rome.

Killing Eve season two doubled its season one audience in Nielsen live/same day ratings and grew 87 percent in total viewers and 78 percent in the key adults 25-54 demo from season one in live+7, the highest season-over-season growth of any TV drama in the last four years. Season two averaged 1.8 million viewers per episode, including 754,000 adults 25-54.

For season three, British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) will come on board to serve as lead writer and executive producer, continuing the tradition of passing the baton to a new female writing voice.

Season 3 will also be executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas and Sandra Oh and produced by Nige Watson. Jeff Melvoin (Designated Survivor, Alias) also joins the team as executive producer.

Killing Eve is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. for BBC AMERICA.The series is based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings.
