BBC America Renews 'Killing Eve' for Season 4

Months ahead of its third season premiere, BBC America has renewed its original drama series Killing Eve for a fourth season. The third season is slated for a spring debut, while the fourth will air in 2021.

The drama stars Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw.

Joining the cast for the third season include Harriet Walter, Danny Sapani, Gemma Whelan, Camille Cottin, Steve Pemberton, Raj Bajaj, Turlough Convery, Pedja Bjelac and Evgenia Dodina.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge created the drama, with Suzanne Heathcote serving as showrunner for the third season. As has become tradition for the series, a new woman will take over as showrunner for the fourth season.

Executive producers for the third season include Waller-Bridge, Heathcote, Oh, Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas and Jeff Melvoin. Endeavor Content and Sid Gentle Films produce.

"How could we not have massive confidence in Killing Eve? It has won big in every major award show and is the highest growing show on U.S. television for six years," said Sarah Barnett, President, AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios. "The reason for this series' emphatic embrace is the brilliant women who breathed it into being: Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emerald Fennell, Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw and its fairy godmother, executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle. Season three lead writer Suzanne Heathcote takes Eve, Villanelle and Carolyn to places more thrilling, twisted and surprising than ever. Our addicted fans will not be disappointed."
