Killing Eve renewed for season 4

Killing Eve posterKilling Eve has officially been renewed for a fourth season ahead of the premiere of its third. More intriguing adventures await between the versatile Villanelle and the enthusiastic Eve, as their complex relationship will continue in the next episodes of this unique thriller.

According to a report by Collider, BBC America announced that the award-winning series will continue to enthrall fans with a fourth season.

In a press release, Sarah Barnett, President, AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios applauded the talented women behind the success of the show:

“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.”

Executive Producer Sally Woodward Gentle also expressed her excitement about the series’ future:

“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.”

On the show runner front, it is reported that a new, female lead writer will take the reins of season four. Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) was showrunner for the first season, with Emerald Fennell (The Crown) taking over for season two, and Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) for season three.

There isn’t an official air date for Killing Eve season three which will hopefully resolve the cliffhanger from the season two finale. Several new cast members have been added including Harriet Walter (Sense and Sensibility), Danny Sapani (Penny Dreadful), 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 (My Mad Fat Diary), Pedja Bjelac (Harry Potter) and Evgenia Dodina (One Week and a Day).
