Killing Eve Season 3 Release Date And Cast With Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh
| Last updated
If you're a fan of Killing Eve, then season three can't come soon enough, and fortunately you won't have to wait much longer before the release date is announced for the BBC hit.
*Here's a season two spoiler warning, so if you haven't watched it yet, don't read on. You have been warned*
Now it's almost time for our fix of Villanelle (played by Jodie Comer) once again - the next installment has already started filming - but will we see Eve (played by the fantastic Sandra Oh) this time around after she was shot in Rome and left for dead? We've got all you need to know about the award-winning spy thriller.
When does Killing Eve season 3 start?
Killing Eve season 3 hasn't had an official release date yet, however it's expected to drop around the same time of the year as season 2, around mid-June. Annoyingly, there was a big gap between seasons 1 and 2 airing in the US and showing up in the UK. Hopefully season 3 won't follow suit.
Who's going to be in season 3?
According to a BBC press release, the TV series, which was nominated for nine 2019 Emmy awards including Outstanding Drama Series, is welcoming Dame Harriet Walter (Succession, The Crown) and Danny Sapani (Harlots, The Crown) to the cast.
But I guess the question you really want to know is, is Eve really dead? Well, the show is called 'Killing Eve', if she's already dead then what's the point?
Sandra Oh has earned buckets of praise for her captivating portrayal of the complex and intriguing character. She scooped a deserved best leading actress award at this year's TV BAFTAs for her performance too. Recently, she was spotted filming in London, so my guess is that she's back.
Jodie Comer is back playing Villanelle. Last year, she told Metro: "The most interesting part about coming back to play Villanelle is the exploration of her emotions and feelings, or lack of them.
"A huge conflict arises in her head from how she thinks she feels about Eve and the other relationships in her life.
"I think that's another reason why the audience took to her. There's a flicker of humanity about her and just when we think we've found it, we lose it again."
Very deep indeed.
Who are the producers?
Series three will also be executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas and Sandra Oh and produced by Nige Watson. Jeff Melvoin (Designated Survivor, Alias) also joins the team as executive producer.
The show is based on the Codename Villanelle novella series from author Luke Jennings, so if you did want to find out the fate of Eve, then you could always just read that instead.
