'Killing Eve' renewed for season 4

Los Angeles, Jan 4 (PTI) BBC America has picked 'Killing Eve', starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, for season four ahead of the premiere of the thriller's third season.

'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,' she added.
