Sarah Barnett, BBC AMERICA President, announced the decision on April 5, 2018. In fact, two possible reasons played in favor of renewal. First, the show's premiere has received the universal acclaim. Secondly, Killing Eve has its roots in a series of novels by Luke Jennings. As a result, there is enough source material for another television adaptation.
The Pilot episode has garnered less than half a million viewers (0.423) with a 0.10 demo rating among adults 18-49. However, it's worth mentioning that BBC America can't boast with the impressive figures of their shows. As a result, the more precious factor for the network is the response from critics and viewers, which was excellent in the case of Killing Eve. On Rotten Tomatoes, the drama holds a score of 8.48/10 and a 100% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have evaluated the first round of Killing Eve at 4.3/5/87%. We see almost the same data on Metacritic, 83/100 and 7.0/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. An overall score of Killing Eve on IMDb is also high, 8.3/10 > 700 votes.
Sarah Barnett said that she was thrilled by watching the play of the title characters, Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer. She also stated that this drama series is ideally fitting the network's lineup. Therefore, they have opted to give an early renewal for Killing Eve. We hope that we would see more season of this exciting series in the future as well.
