Season three of Killing Eve is officially in the works and coming to BBC America after two critically-acclaimed seasons of the Sandra Oh-led thriller. The second outing wrapped up in both the US and the UK but not before producers gave the show another renewal. Here are all the details on the release date for Killing Eve season three and when it may be released.

Killing Eve season three was confirmed before season two even got to air on BBC America.
President of Entertainment Networks for AMC Networks Sarah Barnett told BBC America why the decision to renew Killing Eve was taken.
Barnett said: “We love having this show and the brilliant Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw on our networks,
“Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emerald Fennell have delivered two addictively entertaining seasons (and) 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.
“Killing Eve doesn’t do anything in a templated way; we love giving opportunity to three genius women to make their mark.”

Hopefully, season three will answer a number of questions left over from the series two finale, particularly whether or not Eve is really dead.
Season two writer Fennell also told the BBC about her excitement at the prospect of Heathcote writing season three.
Fennell said: “It’s been such an exciting year for me on Killing Eve.
“I think it’s cool that this tradition has been built into this untraditional show.
“Inheriting some of Phoebe’s characters was a treat – I can’t wait to see what Suzanne does next.”

The plot for season three will depend heavily on how the current season ends.
It’s like that Emmy-nominee Sandra Oh and BAFTA-winner Jodie Comer will be back as Eve and Villanelle, respectively, however.
The end of the Golden Globe-winning first season implied Villanelle had died.
However, in true Killing Eve fashion, she returned for season two.
This unpredictability is what’s made the show such a hit with fans and why guessing what can happen in the future is so difficult.
