Killing Eve season 4 will be the show’s final installment.
BBC America announced on Tuesday that the critically acclaimed spy thriller, starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, will conclude with its upcoming eight-episode fourth season. After the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the production, the show’s last season is now set to begin filming in the U.K. and across Europe early this summer.
First announced in January 2020, Killing Eve season 4 doesn’t have a release date yet but is said to premiere sometime in 2022.
Though the cat-and-mouse game between Oh’s Eve Polastri and Comer’s Villanelle will be wrapping up soon, there are plans to expand the Killing Eve universe through potential spinoffs. AMC Networks and Sid Gentle Films Ltd, the companies that produce Killing Eve, are in the process of developing spinoffs from the series.
While details about the potential spinoffs are being kept under wraps, it would be interesting to see a series focused on the shadowy organization The Twelve or on the group of investigative journalists known as The Bitter Pill. Some fans have also been calling for a spinoff featuring Villanelle’s various protégées.
In a statement, Oh said that Killing Eve has been one of her “greatest experiences” as an actress. She’s “so grateful” for all the cast and crew who have brought the series to life, and for the fans who have joined them since the show launched back in 2018. The actress, who won a Best Actress Golden Globe for her performance as Eve, said that she’s looking forward to reprising her role for the show’s “unpredictable” fourth and final season
Comer, for her part, called her time on Killing Eve “the most extraordinary journey” she has had so far and something that she’ll be “forever grateful for.” The actress, who won a Best Actress Emmy for her role as Villanelle, also thanked the fans who’ve supported the series since the very beginning and promised to make the show’s final season a memorable one.
Sex Education’s Laura Neal is the lead writer of Killing Eve season 4. She also serves as an executive producer on the final season, along with Oh, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Gina Mingacci, and Damon Thomas. The series is financed and distributed by Endeavor Content.
