The third season of “Killing Eve” has begun production and added Harriet Walter (“Succession,” “The Crown”) and Danny Sapani (“Harlots,” “The Crown”) to its cast, BBC America revealed Monday.

As fans of the Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer-led drama will remember, Season 2 left off with a cliffhanger, as Carolyn (Fiona Shaw) seemingly betrayed Eve (Oh) before Villanelle (Comer) shot Eve, leaving her for dead in Rome.

Walter is known for her role as Caroline Collingwood on HBO’s “Succession,” who is the second wife of Logan Roy (Brian Cox) and mother for Shiv (Sarah Snook), Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Kendall (Jeremy Strong). She also played Clemmie Churchill on the first season of Netflix’s “The Crown. Sapani played Ghanaian president Kwame Nkrumah on the second season of that series.

As previously announced, Suzanne Heathcote (“Fear the Walking Dead”) will serve as the new showrunner for “Killing Eve” Season 3, who will executive produce along with Oh, series creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Gina Mingacci, Damon Thomas and Jeff Melvoin. Nige Watson is a producer.

Based on the “Codename Villanelle” novellas by Luke Jennings, “Killing Eve” is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. for BBC America. Endeavor Content handles international sales.

Walter is repped by Christian Hodell and Elizabeth Fergusson from Hamilton Hodell. Sapani is represented by Gordon and French and Luber Roklin Entertainment.
