In news that is no surprise (but very welcome nonetheless), BBC America has decided to renew their smash hit series Killing Eve for a fourth season. The thrilling series follows the cat and mouse game between assassin Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and Eve (Sandra Oh) the special agent who can’t help but be drawn to her.

Sarah Barnett, president, AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios, released an effusive statement about the show, saying, “How could we not have massive confidence in Killing Eve? It has won big in every major award show and is the highest growing show on U.S. television for six years.” Barnett also lauded the women in front of and behind the camera adding, “The reason for this series’ emphatic embrace is the brilliant women who breathed it into being: Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emerald Fennell, Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, Fiona Shaw and its fairy godmother, executive producer Sally Woodward Gentle.”

Season three of the series airs this spring, featuring new head writer Suzanne Heathcoate (See, The Walking Dead). Each season has featured a different female showrunner, but no one has been announced yet for season 4. Sandra Oh has won a Golden Globe for her performance, and Jodie Comer won an Emmy last year for hers. Both Comer and the show are nominated for Golden Globes this year.

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
