Killing Eve is coming back for more. AMC Networks announced in April, just hours after the show's Season 2 premiere, that Killing Eve will return for a third season with a new showrunner at the helm, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Here's what we know about what's next for the hit thriller.
The show will return next year.
The third season of Killing Eve, which is currently in production, will debut in the first half of 2020, Entertainment Weekly reports. The exact premiere date has not yet been announced.
There's a new woman in charge.
Just like Season 2 saw Emerald Fennell take over showrunning duties from creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Season 3 will see Fear the Walking Dead writer Suzanne Heathcote leading the charge as writer and executive producer.
"I’m very excited that the Killing Eve baton is being passed onto another incredible writer for Season 3," Waller-Bridge said in a statement. "We can sleep soundly knowing these characters are safe in Suzanne Heathcote’s hilariously murderous hands."

"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," said Sarah Barnett, president of entertainment networks for AMC Networks, in a statement. "Killing Eve doesn’t do anything in a templated way; we love giving opportunity to three genius women to make their mark."
New cast members include actors from Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Succession.
Gemma Whalen (Yara Greyjoy in Game of Thrones) and Pedja Bjelac (Igor Karkaroff in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) are joining the cast for Season 3, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Other new names on the roster include French actress Camille Cottin (Allied), Turlough Convery (Poldark, Ready Player One, BBC One's Les Misérables), Steve Pemberton (The League of Gentlemen), Evgenia Dodina (One Week and a Day), and Raj Bajaj (Doctor Who, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding), according to EW.
Dame Harriet Walter (Caroline Collingwood in Succession) and Danny Sapani (William North in Harlots) are also new additions.
Season 1 of Killing Eve made its mark as one of the top shows of 2018, earning two Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe win for Sandra Oh in the Best Actress in a Drama Series category.
Killing Eve airs Sundays at 8 p.m. EST on BBC America and AMC.
