It’s been “only” four months since BBC America and AMC’s Killing Eve released its second season, and now fans are already getting some good news about the third season of Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s award-winning ratings juggernaut. With production currently underway, Harriet Walter (Succession, The Crown) and Danny Sapani (Harlots, The Crown) are set to join Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, though little is currently known about the role they will play – especially considering where things were left standing when the smoke settled and the credits rolled on the final season.
Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) will join the third season as lead writer and executive producer, with the series expected to pick up immediately following the second-season standoff between Oh’s Eve, Comer’s Villanelle, and Fiona Shaw‘s Carolyn. Heathcote executive produces alongside Waller-Bridge, Oh, Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas, and Jeff Melvoin – with Nige Watson producing.
Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer reprise their critically-acclaimed performances as Eve (Oh), an MI6 operative, and psychopath assassin Villanelle (Comer) in this story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act. Beginning just after the end of the final episode of season one, Villanelle has disappeared, and Eve is left reeling, having no idea if the woman she stabbed is alive or dead. With both of them in deep trouble, Eve has to find Villanelle before someone else does…but unfortunately, she’s not the only person looking for her.
BBC America’s Killing Eve also stars Kirby Howell Baptiste (Downward Dog) as Eve’s assistant Elena; Kim Bodnia (The Bridge) as Konstantin; and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Penny Dreadful) as Eve’s colleague Bill. Adding to the ensemble cast are Darren Boyd as Frank, Sean Delaney as Kenny, and Owen McDonnell as Niko.
Killing Eve season 3 is expected to return to BBC America some time in early/mid-2020.
