A third season of Killing Eve has been confirmed, despite the fact that the UK air date for season two has not yet been announced.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s acclaimed action drama debuted in 2018 and viewers soon became gripped by the cat-and-mouse pursuits of M15 officer Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) and psychopathic assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer).
While the Golden-Globe winning drama’s second season premiered in the US last week, a third offering is now on the horizon – and will be airing on the BBC in the UK soon.

This time around, Suzanne Heathcote will act as showrunner, taking over directly from Emerald Fennell. The announcement was confirmed at the AMC Networks summit in New York on Monday by Sarah Barnett, president of entertainment networks for AMC.
“We love having this show and the brilliant Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw on our networks,” said Barnett.
“Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emerald Fennell have delivered two addictively entertaining seasons. As we did last year, we’re renewing Killing Eve right out of the gate, now with Suzanne Heathcote as lead writer, as a sign of confidence — we adore this show as much as our fans do. Killing Eve doesn’t do anything in a templated way; we love giving opportunity to three genius women to make their mark.”
Charlotte Moore, BBC Director of Content added: “It’s fantastic news that there will be a third series of this award winning hit drama and we’re delighted UK audiences will be able to see Killing Eve exclusively on the BBC. In the mean-time Villanelle and Eve will be returning to BBC One and BBC iPlayer for a second series soon.”
