Critics Consensus

If Killing Eve's third season doesn't cut quite as deep, it's still a fiendishly delightful showcase for Jodi Comer and Sandra Oh's killer chemistry.

Critic Reviews for Killing Eve Season 3

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (15)

It's perfectly fine entertainment, supported by two excellent performances. But if the series wants its edge back, it will have to go in for the kill.

It's juicy and entertaining and shocking and stylish as always. But the Honeymoon phase is over.

It's dizzying and intoxicating to watch this relationship, and even when Killing Eve sometimes gets bogged down in its thriller plotting, it always has this going for it... Watching these two watch each other is a true pleasure.

Jun 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Jodie Comer's Villanelle continues to have a love / hate, cat and mouse "relationship" with Eve, but this series exposes a vulnerable side to her that shows she is not at the top of her game.

Jun 5, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

A relatively disappointing entry in what's been a very strong show up until now - prone to shackling itself, or writing itself into a corner, or padding episodes with stuff that comes to nothing.

Jun 4, 2020 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Are women who kill more sociopathic than men who do?... Season 3 seems primed to answer that query in ways that are as unsettling as they are fascinating.

May 26, 2020 | Full Review…

The way Villanelle feels about her job is exactly the way I feel about Killing Eve. I want out. I've had enough. It's bulls--t.

May 26, 2020 | Full Review…

Killing Eve may have floundered in its sophomore year, but there's great hope this seductive thriller with a wicked sense of humour can find its form again.

May 18, 2020 | Full Review…

A thriller that had begun so inventively in its first incarnation..., seems set to rely on shock moments that no longer seem quite as startling or inventive.

May 15, 2020 | Full Review…

Killing Eve seems to slingshot from one shocking moment to the next, but in between those moments, the series listlessly coasts, as though waiting for the next big moment to right the ship.

May 12, 2020 | Full Review…

There are deeper themes at play this season that pull at your heartstrings and built even more layers for the story and trajectories of the character - I know how could it get more layered!?

May 6, 2020 | Full Review…

It has run out of ideas and is now running around in circles. And yet... With Shaw in such captivating form as grieving MI6 spy Carolyn Martens, to cancel Killing Eve now would be to throw the baby out with the bath water.

Audience Reviews for Killing Eve: Season 3

  • Aug 31, 2020
    The season had some great moments but overall it wasn't as good as the first two seasons. It was very predictable.
  • Aug 31, 2020
    i am absolutely addicted to this show
  • Aug 22, 2020
    I liked season 1 and 2, but season 3 i just love. It is sensational!!!
  • Aug 13, 2020
    Season 3 was binge worthy - not quite as delightful as 1 and 2 but definitely worth the watch. Just love the crazy character of Villanelle :)
  • Aug 03, 2020
    tad underwhelming. Will they won't they? Yawn. Plus locations stomped onto our screens was fun three times in. After that...not funny. Farcical in places
  • Aug 03, 2020
    This season was a disappointment. (*CONTAINS SPOILERS*) Let me start off by saying that I think beginning this season so long after the events that took place in the last was a mistake. With the chilling murder of Niko's colleague Gemma, Eve firing Kenny from her team, as well as committing her first murder, there was a lot of unresolved tension that was just sort of... skipped over. With less of a focus on M16, the season seemed to have less of a focus in general. A season that should've been centered on investigating Kenny's murder with the impressive buildup of tension and high stakes that we're used to, floundered all over the place, with Eve relentlessly focused on Dasha and Villanelle. I didn't know where the season was going (and apparently the writer didn't either), but the first few episodes were quite good. It wasn't until the latter half that I realized that the deaths of characters were an attempt to substitute a compelling story. I did appreciate seeing Carolyn as a more dynamic character, but her interactions with Geraldine were unbearable, and unbelievably repetitive (Geraldine was a useless character in general that detracted from the story). The Bitter Pill and the characters within it attempted to serve as the investigative body that was previously M16 in seasons past, but it was just another "quirky" diversion from the story, and their conclusion that Konstantin and Paul were involved was out of the blue and devoid of necessary punch. Villanelle's character arc was at the forefront of this season, but it wasn't believable. Villanelle is a cold-blooded, psychopathic assassin who feels joy when watching the life drain from her victim's eyes. The notion that she is suddenly emotionally conflicted doesn't add up. Even if it did, the dreadful and terrifying parts of her are what keep Eve at bay, and what keep the show interesting. The fact that her and Konstantin are also full-fledged working for the 12 again makes no sense. To the 12, Konstantin was believed to be dead (as they ordered Villanelle to do it at the end of Season 1), and Villanelle's history with the 12 is incredibly messy (her killing Nadia, visiting Eve constantly, fleeing the 12 and becoming a freelance killer, killing multiple handlers at her own discretion, etc.). If anything, this season should've been about the 12 trying to terminate them both. Despite the cheesy dialogue in the final episode, Villanelle has ruined Eve's life, and she shouldn't forget that. She's killed her friends, tried to kill Eve herself, and manipulated their marriage time and time again. The "hate" part of their love/hate relationship is crucial, and in this season, it was almost entirely absent. This season was incredibly disappointing, and it's narrative choices may have ruined the series as a whole. It will be interesting to see what Laura Neal can do to revive it in Season 4, if anything at all.

    Killing Eve is undoubtedly a true Madeleine de Proust in the universe of the Small Screen by managing to dust off with audacity and malice the universe of Spy Thrillers thanks to the Talented and Spicy know-how of the creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge who is undoubtedly a to follow very closely and which signs here a Dramatic and Espionage Thriller at the same time Brilliant, Caustic, Bloody, Panting and Feminist which already enters the Pantheon of the Major Series of the Decade 2010 of which we await firmly the Seasons 3 and 4 which promises to be Exhilarating and Moving for our greatest pleasure.

    It has no logic and no trama. Is just a serie of events that get you nowhere. Eve lost all her character to be a "first character". The other actress save de day (and your time).
  • Jul 24, 2020
    was it good? yeah... but not as good as the other seasons. Like the ending moment where they stand-off... that was cool but like Villanelle and Eve barely interacted. I was kinda bummed
  • Jul 20, 2020
    Not up to the level of excellence of Seasons 1 & 2. The entire season seems without an overarching story line; just a bunch of incidents thrown together without a powerful, underlying story. Acting wasn't as fresh as before, and the relationship between Villanelle and Eve has evolved into ??? --- well, whatever it is it's not filled with tension or drama or interest. I struggled to finish the season, and when it ended...I didn't care.
