Killing Eve the hit cross atlantic show starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer has been renewed for a third season.
Eve is a bored, whip-smart security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfil her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle, is a talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. These two fierce women, equally obsessed with each other, will go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse, toppling the typical spy-action thriller.
The show is simulcast in the US by BBC America and AMC, the news was released after the season two premiere over the weekend. Sarah Barnett, president of entertainment networks for AMC released the following statement:
“We love having this show and the brilliant Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw on our 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.”
