TV BBC America Renews "Killing Eve" for 3rd Season

"Killing Eve" Renewed for Second Season at BBC America
by Denise Petski
April 5, 2018



Just ahead of its Sunday premiere, BBC America has given an early second season renewal to its critically praised drama series "Killing Eve", from Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Starring Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) and Jodie Comer (The White Princess) and based on the novellas by Luke Jennings, "Killing Eve" centers on two women; Eve (Oh) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy.

Villanelle (Comer) is an elegant, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. These two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse.





This show has the thunder of women on both sides of the chase in Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer and, importantly, behind the camera with the lavishly brilliant Phoebe Waller-Bridge,” said Sarah Barnett, President, BBC America.

The early response to Killing Eve has been incredible – for that reason, as well as the fact that we wholeheartedly love this original, funny, thrillingly entertaining series, we are delighted to move ahead with a second season before we even premiere.



"Killing Eve" premieres Sunday, April 8 at 8/7c on BBC America.

"Killing Eve" Sets New Series Highs for Rare 3-Week Ratings Growth Streak
by Nellie Andreeva
April 27, 2018



Well received new drama series "Killing Eve" is becoming a breakout hit for BBC America.

The show’s third episode, which aired Sunday, hit a new series high, drawing 758,000 total viewers in Live+3. That’s up 10% from week 2 and up 95% vs Live+Same day. In the network’s target adults 25-54 demo, the week 3 episode drew 296,000 L+3 viewers, up 13% from the prior episode and up 116% vs L+SD.




"Killing Eve" has now posted double-digit ratings increases among total viewers adults 25-54 (as well as adults 18-49) in both Week 2 and 3, becoming the only new drama on ad-supported TV this season to post consecutive growth over its first 3 weeks.

Additionally, its L3 % lifts have consistently gone week-to-week in viewers and 25-54.




It’s pretty amazing, it’s not the sort of behavior that is remotely typical in the TV business today,” said BBC America president Sarah Barnett.

It’s a show that critics and fans have taken to heart and have really enjoyed and really loved. I think this is all about an incredibly strong word of mouth, I think that’s why we are seeing this unprecedented three-week trend and long may it continue.

"Killing Eve" Sets New Ratings Highs, Extends Demo Growth Streak Heading into Finale
by Nellie Andreeva
May 25, 2018



BBC America’s breakout drama "Killing Eve" hit another set of Live+3 series highs for its penultimate episode last week — 986,000 total viewers, 455,000 adults 25-54, and 367,000 adults 18-49 — to head into its Season 1 finale on Sunday on a streak of seven consecutive weeks of demo ratings growth (adults 18-49 and 25-54), going back to the series premiere.

That is a first for a scripted series on television in more than a decade, per the network.




Across seven weeks, "Killing Eve" grew a total of +47% in total viewers, +90% in adults 25-54 and +94% in 18-49 from its April 8 premiere in L+3 ratings.

Save for a little blip in total viewers, with Episode 5 off by +1% from Episode 4, the show has been growing in every major ratings category each week of its run so far (in cable’s recognized L+3 metric; there have been two week-to-week slips in Live+same day).




This show has exceeded our expectations in every possible way, and we came into it with very high expectations,” said Sarah Barnett, president of BBC America.

From Executive Producer Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s words on the page, to the performances by Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and the entire cast, the critical acclaim, the fan engagement and audience growth. On every level, this has been one of the ones you dream about when you get into this business and, luckily for us, the dream continues into this Sunday’s finale and a second season that is already in the works.




"Killing Eve", which already has been renewed for a second season, is one of the top 5 best reviewed dramas of the year according to Metacritic and is Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes with a score of 95%.

"Killing Eve" Season 2 Gets April Premiere Date on BBC America
by Denise Petski
January 3, 2019



BBC America has slotted an April 7 premiere date for the second season of its critically praised thriller series "Killing Eve".

In Season 2, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer reprise their critically-acclaimed performances as Eve (Oh), an MI6 operative, and psychopath assassin Villanelle (Comer) in this story of two women, bound by a mutual obsession and one brutal act.




Beginning just after the end of the final episode of season one, Villanelle has disappeared, and Eve is left reeling, having no idea if the woman she stabbed is alive or dead. With both of them in deep trouble, Eve has to find Villanelle before someone else does… but unfortunately, she’s not the only person looking for her.

Killing Eve is picking up exactly 36 heart-thumping seconds after the events of the season finale,” said Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Entertainment Networks. “This new season is packed with superlative performances and is as twisty, subversive, darkly funny, nerve-wracking and pleasurable as our fans could desire.

by Greg Evans
January 30, 2019



AMC will simulcast season two of BBC America’s "Killing Eve" when the series returns in April, AMC Networks announced today. The series stars recent SAG Award winner Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer.

When we launched Killing Eve on BBC America last year we had high hopes, but no idea it would become this obsession,” said Sarah Barnett, President, Entertainment Networks for AMC Networks. “We believe we’ve just hit the tip of the iceberg in terms of potential viewers and we want to expose this brilliant series to the largest audience we can.

"Killing Eve" Renewed for Season 3 at BBC America; New Showrunner Named
by Denise Petski
April 8, 2019



On the heels of its Season 2 premiere, BBC America has ordered a third season of critically acclaimed series "Killing Eve".

In addition, in keeping with its tradition, the show will pass the baton to a new female writing voice – season one lead writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge handed lead writing to Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Women) for season two, and British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) is coming aboard as lead writer and showrunner/executive producer for season three.




"Killing Eve" finished its first season with an unbroken record of weekly ratings growth in the key adults 25-54 and 18-49 demos – a first for a TV show in Nielsen live+3 ratings.

The finale delivered series highs with 1.25 million viewers in live+3, up 86 percent from premiere, with 545,000 adults 25-54 and 378,000 adults 18-49, up 127 percent and 100 percent from premiere, respectively.




We love having this show and the brilliant Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw on our networks,” said Sarah Barnett, President, Entertainment Networks for AMC Networks.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emerald Fennell have delivered two addictively entertaining seasons. 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.




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,” said Emerald Fennell.

I’m very excited that the Killing Eve baton is being passed onto another incredible writer for season 3. We can sleep soundly knowing these characters are safe in Suzanne Heathcote’s hilariously murderous hands,” said Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

We are overjoyed at this show of love and passion for the show. And delighted to have another fierce woman at the writing helm. We have been so lucky,” said Sally Woodward Gentle.
