Killing Eve has been renewed for a fourth season by BBC America.
The critically acclaimed show starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer based on the Villanelle series of books received the renewal ahead of its season three premiere. The series follows Eve Polastri, a British intelligence investigator tasked with capturing psychopathic assassin Villanelle; as the chase progresses, the two develop a mutual obsession.
The show was renewed for season two a day before the premiere with a season three renewal coming just a day later.
AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios president Sarah Barnett released the following statement:
“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. 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 it’s fairy godmother, executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle. Season 3 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.”
A showrunner for Season 4 has not yet been announced. Suzanne Heathcote was the showrunner for the series’ third season, following Emerald Fennell and Phoebe Waller-Bridge helming the second and first season, respectively.
