BBC Confirms Killing Eve Season 3 Will Be Hitting Screens This Year

The BBC has confirmed the third season of Killing Eve will be hitting screens in 2020 - which the eagle-eyed among you will notice is this year.



The BBC teased that the show would be dropping at some point in 2020 as part of its new trailer for shows coming up this year, which also include Line of Duty and a new adaptation of Malorie Blackman's teen novel Noughts + Crosses.

I know, it feels like just yesterday that we left Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer) in Rome after a tense stand-off, which saw Eve left for dead after being shot by the deadly assassin.

In the tense scene, Villanelle told Eve: "You love me. I love you, I do. You're mine. You are. You are mine."

However, when Eve knocked her back, she took her revenge by opening fire.

While plot details for season three are pretty thin on the ground, what we do know is that we're getting a brand new producer in the form of Suzanne Heathcote, who has previously worked on Fear the Walking Dead.

She will be taking over the reins from Emerald Fennell, who wrote the last season.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who wrote the first season and is an executive producer, said: "I'm very excited that the Killing Eve baton is being passed onto another incredible writer for season three. We can sleep soundly knowing these characters are safe in Suzanne Heathcote's hilariously murderous hands."

We've also had a sneak peek of the series after on-set photos showed Villanelle back on form, waving a gun around while dressed as a police officer.

In a number of snaps, actor Jodie Comer can be seen wearing leather trousers, a hi-vis jacket and a cop's helmet while pointing a gun at someone inside a car. Classic Villanelle.

Who is inside the car is anyone's guess, but actor Fiona Shaw was also photographed on the set - so does that mean there might be bad news for Carolyn Martens in upcoming episodes?

According to a BBC press release, the series - which was nominated for nine 2019 Emmy awards including Outstanding Drama Series - is also welcoming Dame Harriet Walter (Succession, The Crown) and Danny Sapani (Harlots, The Crown) to the cast.

Killing Eve season three will be released at some point in 2020. You can also catch up with the first two series on BBC iPlayer in the UK.
