Former Emmy favorite and one of the most critically acclaimed shows, Killing Eve has now officially been renewed for Season 4 even ahead of its Season 3 debut.
The cable network has picked up a fourth season of the thriller starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, several months ahead of its season three premiere. The series is slated for a spring debut.
"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," said Sarah Barnett, president, AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios. "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 its fairy godmother, executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle. Season three 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."
Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) created the series, based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings, and oversaw its first season before handing over head writing duties to Fennell for season two. Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead, Apple's See) is running season three and, as is now tradition on the show, will pass the reins to another woman for the fourth season. The new showrunner has yet to be named.
I am beyond thrilled that we can continue our extraordinary journey,” said Woodward Gentle. “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."
