Don’t waste time wondering if the Killing Eve TV show will be cancelled by BBC America too soon. The cable network renewed it for a third season, the day after the second season premiered. The parent-company, AMC Networks, is so deadly serious about the series that this year, they’re simulcasting the episodes on a sister network. Still, the ratings in this second season could influence whether Killing Eve is cancelled or renewed beyond season three, so stay tuned.
A BBC America thriller, based on Luke Jennings’ Villanelle novel series, Killing Eve stars Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Kim Bodnia, Sean Delaney, Owen McDonnell, Nina Sosanya, and Edward Bluemel. The story centers on MI6 security officer Eve Polastri (Oh) and capricious killer Villanelle (Comer), who become bound by a mutual act. The second season, which is simulcast on AMC, picks up where the first one left off, and Eve has to find Villanelle before someone else does.
Below are the show’s TV ratings, typically the best way to tell if the series will be cancelled or renewed. In this case, the show’s UK ratings may have a greater impact on the series’ future. These figures will be updated as the weeks progress.
For comparisons: The first season of Killing Eve on BBC America averaged a 0.11 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic and 491,000 total viewers.
Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays. They are sometimes harder to come by so there may be occasional delays or gaps.
