Sad news today, Killing Eve fans. As reported by TVLine, the BBC America series will end with its fourth season. However, not all is lost! AMC is looking to “develop a number of potential spin-off ideas to extend the show’s iconic universe.”
Normally, the critically lauded thriller from Phoebe Waller-Bridge would be airing in April of this year. The ensuing COVID-19 pandemic has stalled production. Killing Eve isn’t a cheap series to create by any stretch. There are several locations wherein the show films all over Europe. In fact, the lush locales are part of Killing Eve‘s charm.
Now, the series premiered in April 2018 to rave reviews. Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh), a former MI5 security officer, becomes entangled in the life of Villanelle (Jodie Comer), a highly-skilled assassin. An inexplicable pull formulates between them as Eve finds that perhaps she’s more like Villanelle than she’s willing to admit.
Both Oh and Comer have been nominated for multiple accolades for their portrayals of Eve and Villanelle, respectively. Comer snagged the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama in 2019.
Oh released a statement regarding Killing Eve‘s end:
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.
Additionally, Comer gave out a statement of her own:
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!
Waller-Bridge oversaw Season One, while Emerald Fennell took the reins for Season Two and Suzanne Heathcote seized control of Season Three. Lastly, Laura Neal will take over Season Four.
Killing Eve will begin production on its eight-episode fourth season in early summer.
While I don’t want the show to ever end, I’m glad we’re getting to say a proper goodbye to Killing Eve. Not all programs are even granted that much, especially in the age of COVID. I’m curious to see where this final season takes us and what these potential spin-offs could entail.
