Killing Eve is BBC iPlayer’s biggest non-continuous drama programme of all-time - with nearly 110m requests to view both series one and two to date. The award-winning hit show stars Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw and is based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings. It is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd for BBC America and distributed by Endeavor Content.

The third season of the drama continues the story of two women with brutal pasts, addicted to each other but now trying desperately to live their lives without their drug of choice. For Villanelle, the assassin without a job, Eve is dead. For Eve, the ex-MI6 operative hiding in plain sight, Villanelle will never find her. All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again. Pre-broadcast of the season opener, BBC America has revealed details of the last season’s shock ending noting that Eve (Oh) has survived being shot by Villanelle (Comer) in Rome, but her current status with MI6 remains unknown after being manipulated by Carolyn (Shaw) in the events of last season’s finale.

Season 2 became the BBC iPlayer’s biggest series for 2019, generating a 40.4 million requests, over 10 million more than the next closest series on the on-demand, catch-up and live platform. Killing Eve’s first series also made the top ten with 22.3 million requests in 2019. Going back to 2018, the two series of Killing Eve combined have now generated 105 million requests in total.

“The fierce women of multi-award-winning Killing Eve are returning exclusively to BBC iPlayer and BBC One once again, to entertain the nation with more explosive action and breath-taking cliff-hangers,” commented Charlotte Moore, director of BBC Content. “I promise you that series three of this unmissable drama has been worth the wait.”

The BBC has already acquired the fourth series of Killing Eve which will see Laura Neal as lead writer and will be produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. BBC America and AMC will show Season Three of the drama from 26 April.
