Villanelle Is Back To Her Old Tricks In New Killing Eve Season 3 Photo

Killing Eve is the type of show we love here at 4YE. It’s female driven, it keeps us on our toes, it has top-notch storytelling and production values, not to mention those exotic locales and wonderful clothes. Seriously, what’s not to like?

Well their cliffhangers for one. Each season finale leaves us wondering the fate of one of our leads. Season 1 was Jodie comer’s Villanelle, while last season, things were not looking good for Sandra Oh’s Eve. Although we don’t currently know the fate of the titular Eve (though I have a feeling things will be ok), with production on the show’s third season well underway, we’ve got our first look at Villanelle and she presents a very familiar figure. Dressed in a UK police yellow hi-vis jacket, with some interesting bruising above her right eye, our chameleon assassin is shown pointing a pistol at someone in a car.

While the identity of the driver is currently unknown, it definitely appears that Villanelle is back in London, but what is with that Motorola phone?

As has become the fashion with the series, each season has a different female showrunner at the helm. The third season has Fear the Walking Dead’s Suzanne Heathcote step up to the plate, however, last season’s showrunner Emerald Fennell has expressed what she hopes we’ll see in the upcoming season.”As a writer and as someone who’s obsessed with the show in general and with Jodie and Sandra and their electric chemistry, of course we all want them to do a Bonnie and Clyde and a sort of Natural Born Killers and go on a rampage wearing couture,” she said.

“What ruins it for Eve, for both of them, really, is it becoming real. Even though they’re in these ruins, even though they’re in the most beautiful city in the world, even though it’s meant to be that the path is cleared for them, it’s madness. The sheer madness of it is suddenly completely apparent,” she continued. “But you can only see that when you get what you want.”
