Highly acclaimed drama by British producer Sid Gentle Films, ‘Killing Eve’ is getting a fourth season. This news comes out before season 3 is even close to airing. Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios shows confidence in the show, saying, “It has won big in every major award show and is the highest-growing show on U.S. television for six years.”
Sandra Oh’s Eve Polastri and Jodie Comer’s Villanelle will continue to reprise their characters to 2021. Executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle also commented, “It is testament to everyone involved that we have been picked up so early — the magnificent actors, writers, directors, and production team.”
For season 3, the drama has taken in a new lead writer, Suzanne Heathcote who replaces Emerald Fennell. Previously, the first season was penned by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and a new female writer will likewise take place for the fourth season.
Comer has won one BAFTA and Emmy for her role as Villanelle and Oh got herself a Golden Globe for her role as Polastri. The show aired on BBC streaming service iPlayer in the UK and became the most-watched series last year with over 40.4m people streaming.
