Not even a full day after the critically-acclaimed series made its long-awaited second season premiere in the US on AMC and simulcast on its own channel, BBC America has renewed Killing Eve for a third season.

Based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings and produced by Sid Gentle Films, Killing Eve revolves around Eve (Sandra Oh), an MI6 operative, and psychopath assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) in this story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act.

Killing Eve finished its first season with an unbroken record of weekly ratings growth in the key adults 25-54 and 18-49 demos something that BBC
America says no other show on television has accomplished in the history of Nielsen live+3 ratings. The finale delivered series highs with 1.25 million viewers in live+3, up 86% from premiere, with 545,000 adults 25-54 and 378,000 adults 18-49, up 127 percent and 100% from premiere, respectively.

The third season will be executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas and Sandra Oh. Jeff Mevloin (Designated Survivor, Alias) also joins the team as executive producer. It is distributed by Endeavor Content.

Season one lead writer Waller-Bridge handed lead writing to Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Women) for season two, and British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) is aboard as lead writer and executive producer for season three.

“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.”
