By now, you know that Sandra Oh's Eve and Jodie Comer's Villanelle are set to make an early return to BBC America and AMC, with Killing Eve season 3 premiering on Sunday, April 12. As we learned from the official teaser/trailer released last week, the deadly duo are each looking to carve out new lives for themselves – but it won't be easy. An unexpected death sets them on a collison course one more time – which has us worried. Considering the past two seasons each ended with one of the two left for dead, what could season 3 have in store for them?
But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's take a moment to step back and catch up on where things are at in Eve's life heading into next month
Killing Eve season 3 continues the story of two women with brutal pasts, addicted to each other but now trying desperately to live their lives without their drug of choice. For Villanelle (Comer), the assassin without a job, Eve (Oh) is dead. For Eve, the ex-MI6 operative hiding in plain sight, Villanelle will never find her. All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again. The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family, and allegiances…and perhaps a share of their souls. Fiona Shaw and Kim Bodnia also star.
The cast for BBC America's Killing Eve season 3 also includes Harriet Walter (Succession), Danny Sapani (Harlots), Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones), Camille Cottin (Call My Agent), Steve Pemberton (Inside No. 9), Raj Bajaj (A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding), Turlough Convery (Ready Player One), Pedja Bjelac (Harry Potter franchise) and Evgenia Dodina (One Week and a Day).
British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) serves as lead writer and executive producer for the upcoming season Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas, Jeff Melvoin, Heathcote, and Oh serve as executive producers, with Nigel Watson serving as producer.
Killing Eve is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. for BBC America and is distributed by Endeavor Content.
