Killing Eve officially gets a Season 3 renewal.
Multiple outlets confirm that BBC America has put in a new season order of the acclaimed series starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer. The early season renewal comes off the heels of the series’ sophomore return.
The new season will also bring with it a new writer, executive producer, and showrunner — Suzanne Heathcote will be taking over for Emerald Fennell and Phoebe Waller-Bridge who were at the helm in Season 2.
“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.”
The series is based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings and has earned 15 BAFTA TV Award nominations.
