Killing Eve renewed for fourth season

Killing Eve: Season 2

Story by Jack Foley

KILLING Eve has been renewed for a fourth season ahead of the launch of its third run this coming spring.

The series, created by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer and is based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings.

The show became a critical and audience hit and has regularly featured among Emmy and BAFTA nominations, with wins for both of its leading ladies.

Announcing the renewal, Sarah Barnett, president, AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios, said: “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 US 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 its fairy godmother, executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle.

“Season three 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.”

In addition to creating the series, Waller-Bridge oversaw its first season before handing over head writing duties to Fennell for season two.

Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead, Apple’s See) is running season three and, as is now tradition on the show, will pass the reins to another woman for the fourth season. The new showrunner has yet to be named.

Executive producer Woodward Gentle added: “I am beyond thrilled that we can continue our extraordinary journey. It is a testament to everyone involved that we have been picked up so early — the magnificent actors, writers, directors and production team. We are extremely lucky to work with such fierce and dedicated people.”

Joining Oh, Comer and Shaw in the season three cast are Harriet Walter (Succession), Danny Sapani (Harlots), Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Camille Cottin (Call My Agent), Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen), Raj Bajaj (A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding), Turlough Convery (Ready Player One), Pedja Bjelac (Harry Potter) and Evgenia Dodina (One Week and a Day).
