When Killing Eve first arrived on our screens back in 2018, we quickly fell in love with Villanelle’s wardrobe, the absolute magic between Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, and of course the dark humour of the capitaviting spy thriller. And now, we’ve got some good news and bad news for you.
The good news? The production of season four has been confirmed for the start of the summer – meaning it should air on BBC iPlayer in 2022. The bad news? It’ll be the show’s last season. Wah!
Sandra Oh, who plays intelligence investigator Eve Polastri confirmed the news. She said: “Killing Eve has been one of my greatest experiences and I look forward to diving back into Eve’s remarkable mind soon.”
“I’m so grateful for all cast and crew who have brought our story to life and to the fans who have joined us and will be back for our exciting and unpredictable fourth and final season.”
Whilst her co-star Jodie Comer said: “Killing Eve has been the most extraordinary journey and one that I will be forever grateful for. Thank you to all the fans who’ve supported us throughout and come along for the ride. Although all good things come to an end, it’s not over yet. We aim to make this one to remember!”
Please excuse us whilst we dig around for some tissues.
The final season will have eight episodes in and will be written by Laura Neal who’s the whizz behind Netflix’s Sex Education (there’s been a different female showrunner for each season the show has had, including Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Emerald Fennell and Suzanne Heathcote).
Looks like we’ve got one heck of a sofa TV-binge date set for 2022, then!
