Killing Eve Renewed For Season Four

Killing Eve Renewed For Season Four

The news has been confirmed by AMC

Hit TV show Killing Eve has been renewed for a fourth season ahead of the premiere of season three, which is due later this year.

The drama, which has been a hit both in the UK and the US, is confirmed to run in to 2021.

Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios said: "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.

"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 it's fairy godmother, executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle. Season 3 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."

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

The BBC teased that the show would be dropping at some point in this year as part of its new trailer for upcoming shows, 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 in the cliffhanger conclusion to season two, but the suspense is real for the start of the third instalment of the show.

It's gone down a treat, both in its British homeland and over the pond. So much so, that it's won and been nominated for a whole load of awards.

To date, Liverpool actor Comer won a BAFTA and an Emmy last year for her performance in the show, while Oh took home a Golden Globe for playing Polastri.

Killing Eve is up for two nominations in the 77th Golden Globe awards ceremony, which takes place on Sunday. The show has been nominated for best television series, while Jodie Comer is nominated for best actress award for her portrayal of the murderous Villanelle aka Oksana Astankova.

The drama airs on BBC One in the UK. Last year, it was the most-watched series on the BBC's iPlayer streaming service with 40.4m requests.
