Killing Eve's season two showrunner Emerald Fennell has teased whether the third season will give us the epic Bonnie and Clyde-style team-up of Eve (Sandra Oh) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer).

Season two of the BBC series ended with the pair on the run together in Rome, until Villanelle unexpectedly shot Eve.

But does that mean the two will be unable to become the duo we all want them to be, or is there still hope?

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Fennell said: "As a writer and as someone who's obsessed with the show in general and with Jodie and Sandra and their electric chemistry, of course we all want them to do a Bonnie and Clyde and a sort of Natural Born Killers and go on a rampage wearing couture."

But, according to Fennell, what could hold them back is the reality of the situation setting in for Eve. "What ruins it for Eve, for both of them, really, is it becoming real," she continued.

"Even though they're in these ruins, even though they're in the most beautiful city in the world, even though it's meant to be that the path is cleared for them, it's madness. The sheer madness of it is suddenly completely apparent. But you can only see that when you get what you want."

While the two characters have become closer over the past two seasons, Fennell explained that they are fundamentally different.

"One of them is a psychopath and one isn't," she added. "Psychologically, you can't shy away from the fact that they are different creatures fundamentally, on a chemical level. It remains to be seen to what extent Villanelle has been changed by Eve."

The third season of Killing Eve will see Suzanne Heathcote – who previously worked on Fear the Walking Dead – take over as showrunner, continuing the show's tradition of having a new female lead writer every season.

Killing Eve airs in the US on AMC and BBC America and in the UK on BBC One.
