We still don’t know quite when the BBC will treat us to the second season of the mega-hit Killing Eve, but we do know that a third series is coming!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third season was announced just hours after the second season started in the US.
The article states, “In keeping with its new tradition of handing off the showrunner reigns to a new female writing voice, British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) will take over for Emerald Fennell, who in turn took over for creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
“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,” said Waller-Bridge.
Exec producers on season three include Sally Woodward Gentle (who served as co-showrunner on season two), Lee Morris, Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas and Emmy-winning star Sandra Oh. Jeff Mevloin (Designated Survivor, Alias) also joins the team as executive producer for season three. Fiona Shaw co-stars.”
There has been little news of when the second season, which is currently airing in America, Poland and Ireland, will air in the UK with some speculating that the broadcaster is opting to wait to release the series in full as a boxset.
