BBC America has announced there will be a fourth series of Killing Eve ahead of the third series premiere later this year.
The second series finale sees Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and Eve (Sandra Oh) go on the run together after Carolyn’s (Fiona Shaw) betrayal. However, when Eve discovers that Villanelle had a gun on her and could have prevented Eve from killing Raymond, she decides to walk away.
The shock final scenes sees assassin Villanelle shoot Eve and leave her for dead in Rome.
The new lead writer for series four has not been announced, yet BBC America confirmed it will be a female writer. Fear The Walking Dead writer Suzanne Heathcote took over as lead writer for series three from Emerald Fennell, who originally took over the reins from Phoebe Waller-Bridge for series two.
Alongside Jodie Comer, Sandra Oh and Fiona Shaw, Succession’s Dame Harriet Walter, The Crown’s Danny Sapani and Game of Thrones’ Gemma Whelan joins the cast for series three.
Other new cast members include Steve Pemberton (Inside No.9), Camille Cottin (Call My Agent!), Raj Bajaj (Doctor Who), Turlough Convery (Sanditon), Pedja Bjelac (Harry Potter) and Evgenia Dodina (One Week and a Day).
“I am beyond thrilled that we can continue our extraordinary journey,” said executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle. “It is testament to everyone involved that we have been picked up so early – the magnificent actors, writers, directors and production team. We are extremely lucky to work with such fierce and dedicated people.”
The third series will premiere in the US in spring 2020. The BBC teased the upcoming series of Killing Eve in their trailer for new series in 2020.
The first and second series of Killing Eve are available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
