BBC America looks to be keeping Eve and Villanelle around for a bit longer, at least for another season thankfully.

The network revealed on Monday that Killing Eve has been renewed for a third season. The renewal comes just a day after the drama returned for its second season, much to the delight of fans.

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

As noted in the official statement above, when it returns for its third season, the hit drama will also have a new head writer. British writer Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) will serve as head writer and executive producer for season 3.

Killing Eve follows the story of MI6 intelligence officer Eve (played by Sandra Oh), who is tracking an international assassin Villanelle (played by Jodie Comer). Season 1 ended on a rather morbid note with Eve stabbing Villanelle but Villanelle escaping.

Killing Eve airs on Sundays on BBC America.
