‘Killing Eve’ Season 3 First Look: It’s a Lot of Clownery!

The award-winning television series Killing Eve is back for another season soon, and it looks just as bonkers as ever. Where did we leave Sandra Oh‘s Eve and Jodie Comer’s Villanelle at the end of season 2? New photos and a teaser for the series are giving us a lot of clues at the direction.

How did the second season of Killing Eve end?

The second season ended with Eve being shot by Villanelle. She was also manipulated by her MI6 boss, Carolyn, in the finale of the second season.

A lot of questions are remaining at the start of the third season, but it looks like we don’t have to wait too long to get answers.

The official description of the season from the network reads in part: “The third season 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, the assassin without a job, Eve is dead.”

It continues, “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.”

What we’re expecting in the third season

On Friday, to coincide with Valentine’s Day, a teaser and several photos were released for the third season of the show.

“These photos are gorgeous and also a bit of a spoiler – yes, Eve is still alive!” said Sarah Barnett, President, AMC Networks Entertainment Group & AMC Studios. “These two blindingly good actors return for a season that finds both characters somewhere new. What remains the same is that Killing Eve will continue to pull fans along for a ferociously original and heart-pounding ride.”

Sally Woodward Gentle, executive producer for Sid Gentle Films Ltd., said, “Where do we start? It’s six months after the bloody events in Rome with Eve and Villanelle both feeling that they have restarted their lives, but both fooling themselves horribly. This is a season about identity, self-determination and chaos.”

The third season of Killing Eve premieres Sunday, April 26th at 10 p.m. on BBC America and AMC.
