Less than a day after the second season premiere, BBC America has renewed its comedy-thriller series “Killing Eve” for a third season.
Additionally, it has been confirmed that Suzanne Heathcote will take over as showrunner for the new season – replacing Emerald Fennell who served in that capacity on the second season and Phoebe Waller-Bridge who did so on the first.
The critically acclaimed and award-winning first season held an unbroken record of weekly ratings growth in the key demos, no show has done that in over a decade. Early reviews for the second season indicate there’s been no dip in quality whatsoever.
Based on the novellas by Luke Jennings, the series centers on two women: Eve, a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfil her fantasies of being a spy, and Villanelle, an elegant, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her.
These two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.
