Killing Eve Renewed for Season 3 With New Showrunner

Good news!

Amanda Bell

Just one day after its second season premiere, Killing Eve has already been renewed for Season 3.

On Monday, BBC America announced at the AMC Networks summit that it will give the thriller-drama a third run while continuing its unique tradition of bringing in new female showrunners with each season. Tapped to lead up the third leg of the series is Suzanne Heathcote (writer for several episodes of Fear the Walking Dead), who takes the reins from Emerald Fennell, who took over in Season 2 after Phoebe Waller-Bridge created the series.

Killing Eve Review: Yes, the Show Is Still Good in Season 2

In a statement, Fennell said, "It's been such an exciting year for me on Killing Eve. I think it's cool that this tradition has been built into this untraditional show. Inheriting some of Phoebe's characters was a treat -- I can't wait to see what Suzanne does next."

Waller-Bridge echoed those sentiments by saying, "I'm very excited that the Killing Eve baton is being passed onto another incredible writer for season 3. We can sleep soundly knowing these characters are safe in Suzanne Heathcote's hilariously murderous hands."

AMC Network's President of Entertainment Networks Sarah Barnett added, "We love having this show and the brilliant Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, and Fiona Shaw on our networks. 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."

Killing Eve airs on Sundays at 8/7c on BBC America and AMC. Season 1 is currently streaming on Hulu.
