BBC America’s stylish thriller-slash-drama-slash-romance (or, well, “romance”) Killing Eve has been renewed for a fourth season, Variety reports. This announcement comes ahead of the show’s Season 3 premiere, which is slated for some time this spring.
Executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle called the early renewal “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.”
AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios president Sarah Barnett praised the show as an easy pick for renewal, calling it “the highest growing show on U.S. television for six years,” and explaining that the devoted fanbase and repeated award show accolades are thanks to “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 4’s showrunner has yet to be set, but the upcoming Season 3 will continue Killing Eve’s tradition of female talent with Suzanne Heathcote (Fear The Walking Dead, See) acting as both showrunner and head writer following in the footsteps of Season 1’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Season 2’s Emerald Fennel.
Based on the Villanelle novel series by Luke Jennings, Killing Eve stars Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, and Fiona Shaw.
