The British spy thriller series Killing Eve is already back with its third season. The series, which also has drama and black comedy in their list of genres, released their latest installment on April 12, 2020.
Killing Eve revolves around the life of an MI5 agent Eve Polastri. She desires to get out of her desk job and wants to move on to fieldwork. Driven by her interests in female assassins and their psychology, she tries to go out of her bounds to investigate a case. This leads to her being ousted from the force and then to her delight recruited by MI6.
She is soon assigned a mission to get hold of an international assassin, Villanelle. She gets to her job only to realize that members of her own organization have links with Villanelle. What begins as an investigation soon develops into an obsession. This is welcomed and reciprocated from the other side, too, turning to a rather interesting chase between the two.
The series was well-received by both fans and critics. Season 1 and 2 had an average of 94% rating from Rotten Tomatoes and 85 from Metacritic. The unexpected twists and turns and the accurate representation of an obsession centric psychic behavior were well lauded by all. It also won a couple of accolades for the series as well as its leads.
We do have our usual reprising their roles. We will see Sandra Oh portraying Eve. The killing Villanelle will be played by Jodie Comer. The ensemble also features Kim Bodnia
as Konstantin, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Elena Felton, and Owen McDonnell as Niko Polastri.
The series was renewed for a 3rd and 4th season in January 2020. And the third season came out on April 12, 2020. It picked up from the end of season 2, where we saw Eve shot by Villanelle. Now, we know that Eve has recovered, and she is more engrossed in her mission or rather obsession to get hold of Villanelle.
The season has aired three episodes so far and has five more to come out. And so far, the reception has followed the usual trend with high ratings and viewership. So, in the subsequent episodes, it will get only better. We will surely see the tension heating up between our protagonist and antagonist. And what more do we want!!!!
